The MK8-3500 Standard
Proven technology, redefined
The now 4th generation of our universal carrier platforms combines proven MikroKopter control electronics with a new concept: More power, more flexibility and more security.
The full carbon frame of the MK8 is easy to disassemble, easy to transport and offers an unprecedented stability. 8 powerful brushless motors guarantee flight times of nearly 40 minutes – of course with full redundancy to ensure maximum safety for equipment and pilots.
What is a redundant flight system?
Redundancy means for the MK8-3500 that in case of a failure (for example, Lipo, sensor, motor, propeller, flight control, ...) during operation, the copter does not crash. For this reason the MK8-3500 is designed as Oktokopter.
The flight and navigation electronics is installed twice. In case of failure the system automatically switches to the reserve electronics. In this way we even meet the strict requirements of the Austrian Air Traffic Control „Austro Control“.
