Unique Modular Design
PlexiDrone's modular design challenges the status quo and makes it extremely easy to upgrade. It is specially designed for you to attach and detach components without the need to use any tools.
Just Snap-in New Arms to Upgrade from X4 to X8
PlexiDrone's detachable arms allow you to boost up the thrust output by simply swapping the PlexiArm X4 set with the PlexiArm X8 set. And when you are ready to use more professional cameras or other payloads then you can easily upgrade your payload via the quick-release Payload Clip.
The rugged snap-lock mechanism implemented on the PlexiArm is designed to make it easy to pop in or detach a PlexiArm set. To remove a PlexiArm press in the snap-lock grip and pull it out. To insert a PlexiArm 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.

Capturing great aerial footage is why you fly a camera drone. Upgrading from shooting with a GoPro to a professional 4K camera is as easy as three "clicks". The Payload Clip features the same snap-lock mechanism as featured on the PlexiArm, which allows you to switch payloads quickly and easily. You can easily increase the quality of your captured footage by upgrading your payload to a PlexiCinema Gimbal that holds the Sony RX100 Series (II/III/IV) Camera.
