And when you are ready to use more professional cameras or other payloads then you can easily upgrade your payload via the quick-release Universal Payload Clip.
Upgrade to X8 for More Thrust!The rugged snap-lock mechanism implemented on PlexiDrone Detachable Arms is designed to make it easy to pop in or detach an arm set. To remove an arm press in the snap-lock grip and pull it out. To insert an arm simply pop it in. It is fully in and secured when you hear the triple-click. This is also the procedure for upgrading from X4 arms to X8 arms. PlexiDrone's flight controller will automatically detect which arm configuration (X4 or X8) is inserted and will adjust for optimal settings accordingly.

Which Camera Can I Carry with PlexiDrone X8?
In addition to the GoPro Hero series (3/4/5), Sony ActionCam and virtually all 360-degree cameras, you can also fly your PlexiDrone X8 with a more professional Sony RX100 series (II/III/IV/V) camera, or a heavier custom payload that the X4 configuration would otherwise not support.
Can I Switch Between Using X4 & X8 Detachable Arm Configurations?
Yes, you can switch between your PlexiDrone using either the X4 or X8 configuration on the fly.
