Ease of maintenance and user-repairability is a key component that minimizes operator downtime.

The IF1200 is a ruggedized, electric heavy-lift hexacopter designed to adapt to a specific requirement set. Minimal vibration and a compact footprint allow the IF1200 to integrate with any third party payload such as LiDAR, radiation detection sensors, gimbaled EO/IR sensors, and delivery capabilities.
