Universal platform for FPV shooting

A lit­tle less than half a year has passed since the guys from Quad­labs (also known as Shen­drones), Andy Schön and Gabriel Kocher intro­duced their first cin­e­mat­ic FPV drone — Thicc, capa­ble of cheer­ful­ly car­ry­ing DSLR cam­eras on board. The project turned out to be so inter­est­ing and attract­ed every­one’s atten­tion that the guys were almost imme­di­ate­ly ripe for the imple­men­ta­tion of a new, even more advanced drone.

Sic­cario FPV Cinelifter is a ver­sa­tile plat­form for cin­e­mat­ic FPV shoot­ing. The Sic­cario (Sicc) X8 allows you to posi­tion your cam­era at the heart of the drone to min­i­mize rota­tion­al iner­tia for excep­tion­al­ly smooth and sta­ble flight. Sic­cario is the first plat­form of its kind to give the cam­era the atten­tion it deserves, as well as its posi­tion­ing and adjustable angles. A spe­cial­ly designed design that does not require the pres­ence of Arch­ing Arm Design land­ing legs, cou­pled with the X8 motor con­fig­u­ra­tion, pro­vides excess thrust in a light­weight and com­pact design that is sig­nif­i­cant­ly small­er than any oth­er Cinelifter plat­form cur­rent­ly avail­able. All assem­bly mate­r­i­al is, as usu­al, doc­u­ment­ed by Andy Schön on his blog.

Peculiarities

  • Designed and tuned specif­i­cal­ly for Zcam and Red Komo­do cam­eras to pro­vide the user with the lat­ter’s dynam­ic ver­sa­til­i­ty in com­pact S35 or full size body and lens com­bi­na­tions.
  • The X8 con­fig­u­ra­tion deliv­ers con­sis­tent, pow­er­ful trac­tion to cap­ture smooth and steady tran­si­tions from low speed to over 100 km/h (depend­ing on load), cap­tur­ing every immer­sive moment with the per­for­mance qual­i­ty that pro­fes­sion­al cin­e­mat­ic con­tent demands.
  • Adjustable cam­era mount from ‑20° to 40° (-18° for Komo­do cam­era)
  • Spe­cial cam­era mount­ing plate (Cheese Plate) and dampers designed and test­ed by Andy and Gabriel to pro­vide the best over­all per­for­mance with any box for­mat cam­era regard­less of sta­bi­liza­tion method, includ­ing Stead­XP opti­miza­tion.
  • Pow­ered by just one 6S bat­tery with XT90-AS con­nec­tor
  • For dynam­ic ver­sa­til­i­ty, the drone’s pow­er­plant sup­ports both 7‑inch 2‑blade pro­pellers, as well as 8‑inch 2‑blade and 3‑blade pro­pellers.
  • Flight dura­tion from 3–6 min­utes depend­ing on the pay­load and the bat­tery used (with Zcam and Komo­do cam­eras, 6S bat­ter­ies with a capac­i­ty of 3300–4000 mAh are rec­om­mend­ed)
  • Able to car­ry a pay­load of 1–2 kg. The rec­om­mend­ed opti­mal load is 1.5 kg.
  • Addi­tion­al equip­ment and cus­tomiz­able acces­sories to con­trol and pow­er cam­eras
  • Equipped with DJI dig­i­tal FPV sys­tem for the best vision and uncom­pro­mis­ing shoot­ing
  • Ful­ly assem­bled, test­ed and tuned (in the USA) to fly with Zcam and Komo­do cam­eras, with UAV Tech cus­tomiz­able based on load and envi­ron­ment.
  • Drone Flight Case Hard Shell (Option­al)
  • Refresh Ser­vices (Free ser­vice for repairs and/or upgrades; you only pay for parts and ship­ping)
