Free Flight X8 - FPVModel

Ready to lift a heavy payload.


An X8 Octo with retracts

I recently reported on the new Free Flight X4 from, and no sooner did I refresh the page, did FPVModel announce a heavy lifting, high stability octocopter; the Free Flight X8. The X8 is basically an X4 with four additional motors, props, and esc's... and longer retractable landing gear designed to clear those 15" carbon props. Both models have the same boom length and the same components.

The current pricing for the X8 at the time of this news article is $1899 with free shipping.

Learn to fly with thumb..
Can it be fitted with 18" prop ?
I assume the center plate will hold Z15 Gh4 gimbal + camera payload.
