X8 Power System for Agricultural Drones

Integrated & Ready-to-use Propulsion System

The X8 propulsion system, which integrates motor, ESC,
propeller and motor mount (with the stock/standard tube adapter,
it’s compatible with 30mm&35mm diameter carbon fiber arm tubes)
together, is easy to mount and use.
Note: with the foldable 2911 propeller, the propulsion system is capable of
carrying the load of 5~7KG (that is 22~28KG for a quadcopter, 33~42KG for
a hexacopter ) and provides the thrust of up to 15.3KG per axis.

FOC-based PMSM Algorithm
Perfect Propulsion System

The FOC (Field Oriented Control)-based PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor) algorithm,
an optimized algorithm for improving the collaborative performance of the ESC, motor & propeller, makes the
motor-propeller more balanced and creates a propulsion system features high stability, reliability and efficiency.
Note: comparing with the BLDC motors, the PMSM has a lot of advantages like low noise, small size, high power density,
low pulsating torque, and high control precision.

Super Waterproof

The X8 propulsion system is waterproof to IPX7 standard. It’s applicable to almost all the
harsh working conditions (for agricultural applications) like rainwater, pesticides, salt spray,
high temperature, sand and dust. Combined with the outlets at the bottom of the motor
mount (note: patented design), you can directly rinse the system with fresh water after use.

Multiple Protection Functions &
Real-time Data Output

The ESC included in the X8 power propulsion, which features
a series of protection functions like power-on self test,
power-on abnormal voltage, over-current motor lock-up,
and can output the running data like input throttle, output
throttle, RPM, input voltage & current, output current, capacitor
temperature and MOS temperature to the FC (Flight Controller)
in real time to allow the FC to know the running status of the
(ESC & motor) power combo in real time, and improve the flight
performance, efficiency and reliability of the drones.
Note: using the Hobbywing DataLink data box (note: item sold separately, it has not
been released to the public yet.) can record the real-time running data of 8 ESCs
simultaneously and transmit those data to the FC via the Bus to form a closed-loop
control system.)

High-brightness LED Indicator

The X8 propulsion system also contains a high-brightness
LED indicator, you can choose the light color or disable it.
It can provide the information about the working status of
the system and send a warning when any abnormal issue
occurs, that significantly improves the safety of the system.

High Thrust & Efficiency Propeller

The 2911 propeller made of special high-strength carbon fiber is
solid and light, and guarantees great consistency and excellent
dynamic balance. The optimized aerodynamic shape and unique
blade tip design combined with the optimized electromagnetic
design adopted by the motor and the high efficiency FOC (Field
Oriented Control) algorithm implemented by the ESC guarantee
the high thrust & efficiency of the propulsion system.

Super Impact Resistance

The high-strength CNC-machined aluminum alloy frame combined with the optimized structure
design protect the motor components effectively, make the motor really impact-resistant,
and greatly reduce the possibility of structure deformation/malfunction caused by drop or hit.
Note: the internal strengthened cross beam structure (adopted by the motor) is an impact-resistant design patent;
the triple inter-locking structure design is a Hobbywing patent, please do not copy.

Modular Design
Easy to Maintain

The X8 propulsion system features a modular design. When it is damaged,
you can change the damaged part like blades (single or two), the propeller
adapter, or the integrated power combo (ESC+motor) easily and quickly.

Regular Firmware Updates
Free of Charge

You can upgrade the ESC with the Hobbywing USB
LINK software, a LCD program box (item sold
separately) and a laptop. Hobbywing updates its ESC
firmware regularly giving you upgraded features more
often when available.
