The team of Electronic and Software Engineers of the Java Robotics and Intelligent Systems Research Centre, which is one of the pioneering research centers of the Java Institute for Advanced Technology, has come up with yet another amazing creation.

A hexa copter is the next step up from a quadcopter. This model have six motors and corresponding propellers. This adds to the capability of the aircraft and really makes this the optimal choice for anyone flying with expensive cameras attached. Essentially, these models have all of the same major benefits of a quadcopter with a lot more added in.

"Accordingly, the hexa copter can be regarded as an appropriate choice for drones that need to carry other equipment, including cameras."

Power: These models have higher speeds and more power due to the two extra motors included.

Height: Fly higher in the air than ever before. A Hexa copter reaches higher elevations with ease compared to its counterpart.

Safety: By having 6 motors 120 degrees apart, one motor can die while the rest pick up the slack. This means that a pilot will be able to safely land the drone even if one motor is damaged. For anyone coming from a quadcopter, this would be very difficult to do with less motors.

If lose two motors but still have the ability to fly this hexa copter and properly land. The positioning of the motor will be the deciding factor on whether a pilot can fly or will end up crashing their drone.

You need to carry a heavier payload, meaning you can use better cameras for recording, or heavier accessories.

The pros are:

Greater overall power, speed and elevation.

Safety provided through additional motors.

Higher overall payload.

Great control and flight speed.

This Hexa copter will not start up by pushing the RC throttle sticks directly, as the flying mode can only be achieved under the manual mode or hovering mode.

The GPS Compass Module is a necessary equipment to achieve high precision hover. After connecting compass module with GPS module, the Hexa Copter can achieve high-precision fixed-point hovering, automatic return and other driving functions.

Automatic return when transmitter out of control: The Hexa Copter take off after red led flashes 3 times and positioning successfully. If remote control signal cannot be detected or shut down the power of transmitter, Hexa Copter will perform return task, and return to the home point.
