SHOTOVER U1 HEAVY LIFTER UAS2018-02-13T07:46:39+00:00

Project Description



The Shotover U1 Heavy Lifter UAS is capable of 7-12 minutes of flight time at the full 55-pound FAA weight restriction, offering studio productions the ability to carry up to 22.4 pounds of cinema size payload (gimbal, camera, lens, and accessories) at its max allowable takeoff weight.

Recommended Payload

To maximize flight time and image quality on most low altitude missions, we recommend attaching A carbon fiber Red Weapon or Alexa Mini camera with a lightweight zoom to the G1 Gimbal.
