Thanks to its hybrid power system and unique design, the HYBRiX.20 has 10 times the endurance of any electric multicopter, allowing corporate users to take on longer and more ambitious aerial missions. Even with the maximum payload, this hybrid multi-rotor remotely piloted vehicle can operate for more than 2 hours. Need even more time? Just refuel the drone and be back in the air in less than 10 minutes.
HYBRiX.20 has been designed for easy operation. Detachable arms provide convenient transportation and deployment. It can be quickly set up and operated by one person. The rugged transport case protects the HYBRiX during trips to the operating area and fits in the trunk of a standard car.
Q16 Skyline control station
Advanced ground control station Q16 Skyline – gives you complete control over your HYBRiX.20. It has two screens for real-time video stream output and flight control. The Q16 Skyline allows the pilot to control the drone and gimbal independently, and the convenient form factor is ideal for long missions.
The flight planner gives you complete control over the air mission. Allows you to create an automatic flight plan with waypoints and emergency functions, change the actual data in real time and switch to manual pilot mode at any time. HYBRiX is built on an open source flight controller based on Ardupilot software and is compatible with the most popular UAV sensors and accessories.
Depending on the attached payload, the Quaternium HYBRiX.20 will be indispensable in areas such as monitoring and surveillance, industrial inspection, mining, mapping and topography, agriculture, emergency response and assistance.
HYBRiX.20 in practice
Thanks to close cooperation between the development company and the mayor’s office of the resort town of Benidorm, the Spanish police received a police version of the HYBRiX.20 POLICE drone. The drone is equipped with an advanced EO / IR camera (based on two matrices: electro-optical and infrared) with a 30x zoom, suspended by a 3-axis mechanical suspension, as well as a transponder system that provides coordination with air traffic authorities. This approach will allow the police aviation unit to increase the level of security and protection of citizens both day and night, in those areas of the city where it was previously impossible to respond urgently.
The complete set of HYBRiX.20 depends entirely on the tasks set by the customer. To purchase a drone, you need to contact the developer through the available contact details posted on the official website.
