Yes. We provide a serial (UART) link between the Jetson TX2 and flight controller. Our flight controller supports PX4 with MAVROS on the Jetson TX2.
Yes, we can do this as a custom order.
Approximately 300 grams in the high-performance configuration (for faster speed and agility). Please contact us if you require a high-payload option.
Yes, it is supported but it depends on context. Draco R supports the Connex Prosight for digital input. It supports 720p HDMI output on the ground station. We provide pre-purchase consultation for your customization requirements.
We do not provide SLAM. Implementation is done by the user.
This can be implemented by the user and we provide consultation for this. Draco R does not support 4G natively as every country has a different network standard, and we do not provide a gold standard module.
Draco R comes standard with a WVGA (720×480) for machine vision, but this can be improved with a different camera.
Four weeks from the time of order placement.
UVify warrants that your Draco R will be tested prior to shipping and will be free from material and workmanship defects. Due to the nature of these components, however, there is no warranty. Use caution during setup and operation!
This depends on your configuration as Draco R is designed for research/customization. When shipped with the standard TX2 configuration it is approximately 90mph.
This is dependent on the context.
Draco R’s Line of sight range 1000 – 3000 ft. (300-1000 meter) when the Draco R is equipped with a Connex Prosight.
Draco R comes with a 4S, 3000 mAh, high-discharge smart battery.
Yes, the Draco R can the VLP Lite Puck.
We provide MAVROS as a standard communication / control method for Draco R..
The SDK is on the Jetson TX2, you can also change the flight controller’s firmware using the PX4 stack. Draco R officially supports PX4.
Yes, this can be done via Mavlink. See Dronecode.org for more information.
Yes, it can via Mavlink or MAVROS if you are using ROS.
