Multicopter models

If you are interested in buying a drone, you will quickly come across different models of multicopters: Copters with 4, 6 or even 8 rotors, quadrocopters, hexacopters, octocopters and many more. But what is the difference between the numerous models? And which system is suitable for which requirements?

Hexacopter - Definition

While a quadcopter is equipped with 4 rotors and an octocopter with 8 propellers and motors, the hexacopter is characterized by its 6 rotor arms. The 6-rotor system not only provides a more stable flight and more power, but is also an important safety feature.

Stable. Precise. Strong.

Another advantage of a hexacopter: Its quiet flight characteristics. Thanks to the 6-rotor system, the copter stands stable in the air and can be reliably controlled even at high wind speeds. Compared to most quadrocopters, a hexacopter is not only quieter but also more powerful, more precisely controllable and has a higher payload.

6 rotors for more safety

Thanks to its 6 rotor design, a hexacopter can also be controlled with 5 rotors in case of a motor or propeller fail. This means that in the event of a breakdown, you can still safely fly and land with 5 rotors. A clear advantage compared to a quadrocopter that would fall of the sky when they loose a rotor. In addition, the 6-rotor system provides more power and a stable flight behavior.

The advantages of a hexacopter at a glance

  • If an motor or propeller is damaged, a hexacopter is able to fly and land safely even with 5 rotors
  • 6 rotors for a more stable flight behavior
  • Flying even at high wind speeds
  • Higher load capacity
  • 6 motors for more thrust and power
  • Greater acceptance by authorities for a start-permission

Application areas of a hexacopter

A hexacopter has many advantages and is suitable for beginners as well as for demanding photographers and videographers due to its safe and stable flight characteristics. Even commercial drone pilots will find a safe, precise, powerful and flexible tool in it that can be equipped with additional accessories thanks to the increased load capacity.
