Design-wise, this copter features 8 motors and propellers. These 8 motors provide the same benefit that the hexacopter provides over the quadcopter:
• Speed: Much faster than the competition.
• Control: Terrific control that is not hindered as much by wind or rain.
• Safety: You can lose any one motor and still fly these copters just as well as you could a hexacopter. Furthermore, you may be able to lose 2 or 3 motors without the craft crashing down, depending on positioning and the overall payload.
The top of the line. These are copters that have a high price tag, but they are powerful, stable and fast. Advanced functionality and stabilization features make an octocopter a must-have for professionals.
