Perimeter 8

Endurance Hybrid Multirotor

The Perimeter 8 UAV features an impressive 7.5 kg payload capacity with 1 hour of endurance and a no-payload endurance of over 5 hours. The Perimeter 8 is just as easy to operate as the Perimeter 4, but has full propeller, motor, and ESC redundancy. This redundancy in addition to electronic fuel injection and a 5-minute battery backup reserve flight time ensures the safety of high-value payloads.

Tried and tested with various UgCS sensors, this platform provide long flight duration for larger distance projects. Capable of carrying the heaviest of UgCS sensors with a flight time of well over 1 hour.
