Stunning video
right out of the box

  • Rock-solid video platform

    Mount a GoPro camera directly to IRIS or the optional Tarot brushless gimbal for perfectly stabilized, vibration-free video.

  • Focused flying

    APM:Copter can fix the Tarot gimbal on a specific location, allowing IRIS to fly a mission while keeping the designated subject in view at all times.

Smart design

  • Powerful new flight controller

    IRIS uses Pixhawk, our most advanced flight controller, with processing speeds over 20 times faster than our previous generation controller.

  • Robust frame

    IRIS’ reinforced nylon arms and ABS plastic shell provide maximum insurance against damage. Integrated safety and LED status lights let you know the status of IRIS on the ground or in the air.
