Quadcopter

Quadcopter developed by TiANY is used for agricultural applications such as crop dusting, and over seven hundred units have been sold. The quadcopter can be folded for transportation and storage, and landing gear consists of two pairs of legs. Specification: [1]

Quadcopter rotorcraft drone using four rotors

A quadcopter, also called a quadrotor helicopter or quadrotor, is a multirotor helicopter that is lifted and propelled by four rotors. Quadcopters are classified as rotorcraft, as opposed to fixed-wing aircraft, because their lift is generated by a set of rotors.

TY-X8

TY-X8 is an octocopter developed for aerial photography and cinematography missions. TY-X8 utilizing commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) subsystems, such as DJI Innovations Wookong flight control systems and PTZ camera. Other COTS utilized by TY-X8 includes Futaba remote control station. Landing gear consists of a pair of legs, and rotors are contructe of carbon fiber composite material. [2]

Commercial off-the-shelf or commercially available off-the-shelf (COTS) products are packaged solutions which are then adapted to satisfy the needs of the purchasing organization, rather than the commissioning of custom-made, or bespoke, solutions. A related term, Mil-COTS, refers to COTS products for use by the U.S. military.

Futaba Corporation is a Japanese company founded in 1948, originally to produce vacuum tubes. As time passed, production and elemental techniques of the vacuum tube transformed into the manufacturing of vacuum fluorescent displays (VFDs), tool and die set components, radio control equipment and OLED displays.

Hexacopter

Although capable for various missions, TiANY hexacopter is mainly used by police for aerial surveillance missions. As with its larger cousin TY-X8, the land gear of this hexacopter also consists of a pair of skids. Specification: [3]
