PRODRONE Develops a PD6B-Type II, equipped with geofence system, PSU (Prodrone Safety Unity)

Nagoya-JAPAN, May 1, 2018- PRODRONE is thrilled to announce it has developed the PD6B-Type II, maximum payload in a compact design. PRODRONE showcases the new model at its booth at Xponential 2018, to be held May 1-3, 2018 in Denver.

“PD6B-Type II” is a large platform machine equipped with geofence system, PSU (Prodrone Safety Unit), as a standard.

When deviating from the range flight safety and altitude, it is possible to self-activate the parachute to make it safely. PD6B-Type II comes with maximum (66.1 lb) payload in a compact design that make it easy to carry and deliver.

“PD6B-Type II” adopts a layout in which the propeller does not wrap when spreading by reversing the mounting direction of the adjacent motor. As a result, the distance between the shafts is shorter than the previous large-sized 6 rotor machine, and space saving has been realized with the thrust performance intact.

The PD6B-Type II features easy interchangeable battery packs which you can locate anywhere around the body to adapt to your required tasks.

Thanks for PD6B-Type II’s carrying capability, its smooth flight of PD6B-Type II makes it possible to acquire survey data by Riegle laser with highest precision. If you are looking for a drone with capability of carrying big laser sensors, a cinema camera, electric winch, or delivery box, you name it. The PD6B-Type II is the best choice.
