Skyjib Super 6 Ti-QR

The Skyjib Super 6 Ti-Qr is a hexacopter platform. The dimensions of this platform make it easier to transport and set up in limited space. Depending on flight conditions, activity and payload, this platform can fly for anywhere between 10-25 minutes.

This platform can be used for a range of activities including photography and videography using visible spectrum sensors as well as thermal and near infrared sensors.

It can also be piloted using computer based software to autonomously carry out a pre-programmed route. This is useful where a client needs exact repeatability of flight, such as for timelapse imagery of a construction site. The software can also be used to carry out photogrammetry sorties to collect data for the production of highly accurate digital terrain models which are created using a series of overlapping photographs. In manual flight this would be nearly impossible; the software allows the user to enter camera and lens specific parameters from which it calculates the required distance between flight lines and the number of photos it will need to take to achieve the predefined overlap.

The Skyjib Super 6 Ti-QR has a range of features which ensure every flight can be completed safely. It has single engine redundancy which allows the pilot to return the craft to its take-off site in a controlled manner in case of a single total motor failure. There are also a number of failsafes programmed to allow the pilot to maintain a level of control over the platform should the worst happen. This enables the pilot to carry out a contained landing that protects the platform, surrounding property and members of the public from harm. A range of telemetry features constantly feed information back to the pilot about the status of the platform; information such as battery voltage, roll, pitch and yaw angles, flying speed in both horizontal and vertical directions and height and distance away from the take-off point.
