Very Big 1250mm Size Octocopter Frame Set by Tarot
Great to carry Prosumer or DSLR camera for long time filming.

Why play big? Because when it comes to flying object, the bigger the aircraft, the more stable it is. This T18 is a Foldable 1250 size octocopter, it's even bigger with propellers installed. The drone itself is made with top end material, 3K Carbon Fiber Plates and Tubes, Aluminum CNC machined parts everywhere, especially the Motor Mount, they are awesome, machined from one big block of aluminum and then anodized with Orange an Black, plus a thick carbon fiber plate as the motor base mount. It has two battery plates on top, you can put 2 X 22.2 5500mah batteries (or more), and you should get more than 15 minutes of flight time. Considering you are carrying heavy payload (e.g. DSLR camera or bigger), this is a long flight time.
