Specially Designed for First Responders on a Budget
The Draganflyer Guardian is an affordable high-performance UAV solution for law enforcement, firefighting and emergency responders. Crystal-clear real-time data that are proven to save lives, time and money. Our proven track record has made us the number one choice for law enforcement UAS systems.
The flight system has a solid track record as a proven performer, developed from the ground-up by Draganfly Innovations. Although it’s no bigger than some of our earlier models, Guardian features larger motors, larger battery, and a greater payload capacity with more sophisticated payload features that deliver high-quality results.
Out of the rugged transport case, this aircraft is ready to go. Set up and installation is very straightforward; simply snap the landing struts in place, attach the quick connect payload, install the battery, and you’re flying in a matter of minutes.
At Draganfly we know that transport case size, weight, and assembly time can be critical. We think you’ll agree; the Draganflyer Guardian hits that sweet spot with size, capability, and at the same time, is a very practical solution.
We have built this handcrafted aircraft from carbon fibre and injection moulded parts. In addition to the hardware engineering, at Draganfly we also design our own electronics and write our own software as well.
Learn and Enjoy
Whoever thought learning could be so much fun! Before you receive your aircraft, we encourage you to practice with the Lil’ Draganflyer practice system and take it slowly running through the various flight drills described in the Guardian manual. When you’re ready to start flying the Guardian, fly without a payload at first to develop your skills before flying with a camera payload system. Lastly, the beauty of a helicopter is that you can learn to fly a quarter of an inch at-a-time.
Payload System Options
The Guardian features our quick connect payload mounting system eliminating the need for cables between the helicopter and payload. The benefit is a quick and simple payload installation combined with a digital video downlink solution. Which provides an excellent range of the Sony QX100, 20mp w/3.6x optical zoom payload.
We have integrated the QX100 into the system to provide remote zoom control and remote shutter, directly from the HHC. Take it even further by purchasing an optional GoPro Hero 3+ 2 axis brushless stabilized gimbal or a 2-axis stabilized QX100 camera mount.
And although they are relatively expensive the helicopter is very capable of carrying a FLIR Tau2 thermal imaging camera for industrial inspections or search/rescue work.
