Think big!! Presenting the Tarot T960 Foldable Hexacopter
Able to carry Prosumer (Mini DSLR) or GoPro for long time filming
The bigger the aircraft, the more stable it is.
This T960 is a 960mm motor to motor hexacopter , and it's foldable makes it easy to deploy. Made with high quality carbon fiber and CNC aluminum parts through out the drone, especially the great finishing motor mount, it's machined from one big block of aluminum and then anodized in orange an black.
The T960 is a great platform to carry 2~3kg of payload for general purpose, aerial filming or landscape survey or what ever you can come up with. We assembled one for our aerial filming job, we put a 22.2V 12000mah battery pack on it, carrying a prosumer camera with FPV system, all-up-weight about 4500g, flew for 13~15 minutes, flying is solid and stable, we love this reliable and portable 6-arm drone platform.
The drone comes with no rigs underneath, and there is plenty of room for you to DIY some custom made rig for your equipment. For general purpose, we recommend you to get the original Tarot mounting rail and battery plates, they allow you to attach some small equipment and shift the battery weight for better C.G.
The max. thrust of Tarot 5008-340kv motor with 18" propeller is around 2kg, that means in 50% throttle thrust is about 1kg, times 6, that means the ideal all-up-weight is about 5~6kg, this will cover most Mini DSLR cameras.

| Airframe requires electronics!
You need to put many electronics on it yourself, for e.g. Motors, ESC, Flight Controller, Radio Controller, video system, Camera Gimbal and Propellers, they are NOT easy stuff for beginners, we recommend this airframe for those who can solder stuff and willing to put things together. This is a professional multi-rotor, not a toy.
