The only fully enclosed carbon fibre fuselage in the European premium drone segment boasts fuselage spaciousness, impressive design and dynamic. Whether put to everyday professional use or in racing – the Kingfisher meets all requirements effortlessly and comfortably.


More power, more dynamism and more payload equipment are offered by the Kingfisher. Your endurance, payload or connectivity requirements determine the optimal configuration. No matter which industry are you in, Robodrone may carry a payload of upto 5kg.

Impressive flexibility

A dynamic design clearly underscores the impressive performance expectations of the Kingfisher. On the exterior the focus has been placed on the RQR payload quick release system, while the nacelles have been modernised primarily in the area of the motor fittings. The dimensions of the Kingfisher form the best possible basis for providing its variable payload with a generous amount of space.


Configuration options come with individualised paint finishes and a comprehensive range of payload. As an exmample, Kingfisher owners carry varius camera types, including multispectrals, radiation sensors, gas detectors, lasers, avalanche signal detectors, or megaphones.

Weather resistance

The carbon-fibre fuselage underscores the first-class standards of the Kingfisher. With its diverse adjustment options, the PCB holders enables a high degree of flexibility in the interior, including customizable position for optimum use of the inner compartment. The covered volume clearly surpasses the amount of space offered by the drone´s competitors.


All parts and communication systems are enclosed in the fuselage, motors are waterproof. Robodrone customers fly in strong winds, rain and snowy conditions.

  

                   

 

Ease of use and maintenance      

While Robodrones perform most of the flight operations on its own, we offer pilot courses both for beginners and advanced pilots. Within 6 days we´ll make sure you are ready for the CAA exam.


To ensure your satisfaction and the optimal value retention of your drone, the optional equipment includes a basic maintenance kit . For a small charge, a Robodrone contract will free you from additional costs for maintenance and repairs.
