Watts Innovations PRISM
The Watts Innovations PRISM can be flown in either a traditional quadcopter or coaxial X8 configuration, giving it a payload capability of up to twenty-five (25) pounds. The platform includes a patent-pending Propulsion ID technology so that it can detect and automatically configure the autopilot for flight no matter what kind of propulsion system is installed.
The PRISM’s foldable design fits easily into the included hard case for quick deployments. Each arm can be removed by adjusting only two bolts, allowing for the Remote Pilot(s) to easily switch between X8/quadcopter configurations or to swap out damaged arms.
The PRISM’s integrated 12mm rail system gives operators the freedom to mount just about any
power source, isolation damper, accessory, or payload imaginable on either the top or the bottom of the aircraft with ease.
The PRISM is built around the powerful Cube Flight Controller, the world’s largest and most trusted open-source autopilot system on the market. Operators and organizations will enjoy the freedom of flying without the hassle of no-fly zones, altitude restrictions, or data tracking of any kind.
The PRISM also includes a high definition FPV camera and is designed, manufactured, assembled, and supported in the USA.
