The ARF-Okto XL 6S12 is a powerful, fully assembled and tested MikroKopter "Made in Germany". With the increased CFK frame the 6S12 wins clearly of rigidity and gets also a better flight characteristic. And with the new Brushless controller V3, the Motor MK3644 and a powerful 6S LiPo this copter can handle a payload up to 4Kg.
This "workaholic" is ideal for safe and efficient operation. The operational area includes the Film Production, Photography, thermography, inspection, measurement. Also possible are many other applications.
You can fly the copter quickly like a sports car or slow and light as a feather through the air.

Totally weight <5Kg (include 1x LiPo and standard (Video-) camera)
- redundant design (Optional. E.g. required for admission in Austria)
- Incl. commercial software license (allows additional features)
- Telemetry with voice output: Voltage, capacity, power, altitude, distance, direction, speed, temperature, ...
- Introduction to the device incl. Certificate (on demand)
Out of the Box
Four small steps and you can fly:
mount the LiPo Holder
- Attach landing feet
- Attach receiver
- Attach propeller
No soldering is required.
For the first flight and to practice it is recommended to mount the included EPP propeller. If you then fly with payload, use the also included high-quality carbon fiber propeller.
All significant functions of the OktoKopter can be conveniently controlled from the ground:
- Pitch / roll / yaw gas to fly
- Altitude control
- camera tilt
- Camera triggering (Video Start / Stop or continuous shooting)
- Direction of Independent control mode "Carefree"
All transmitters you can buy at the MikroKopter shop are already preset for immediate use. Here the functions are optimally positioned for easy use.
All important information at a glance:
The following values are displayed in the Telemetry menu:
- battery voltage
- Flight time
- Used Lipo-capacity
- Orientation of the copter
- Current draw
- Number of GPS satellites
- Distance and direction to the starting position
- an error message in plain text
Additionally further information (like the temperatures of the individual motor electronics (brushless controller)) can be retrieved.
The transmitter has a built-in speech output. This allows to retrieve e.g all values of the telemetry as an announcement.
So if you use e.g. the GPS switch the transmitter will say "GPS-hold".
Furthermore, important messages (like "Low voltage") are automatically spoken.
each ARF copter includes a guide with all the necessary information.
