Full description

The H520E-OFDM Hexacopter was specially developed for commercial drone applications and provides SAR ground teams, inspectors, police, fire brigades, and surveying teams with a versatile tool. The H520E-OFDM is a robust, powerful, and flexible UAV platform that can be ideally adapted to individual requirements and thus enables a variety of industry-specific applications. Long flight times and high-quality camera systems with embedded GPS data allow an area to be recorded quickly and precisely, while the interference-free precision compass enables flying even in previously difficult-to-fly environments. In addition to the performance and flexibility, great emphasis was placed on the drone’s flight and data security when developing the platform.

What is the maximum windspeed I can fly the H520?
Up to 6 BfT. Approx. 50km/h
At what temperatures can the H520 be flown?
The H520 can be flown from -10°C to about 40°C. Note that the battery shouldn’t be cold. A cold battery can lose up to 40% of its performance. At temperatures above 40°C, the electronics may experience a heat problem during continuous operation. The system may need to cool down now and then.
Which factors can affect the flight time?
Temperature, payload, altitude and wind affect the flight time.
What are the advantages of 6 propellers?
Resilience. The H520 can be landed safely also with 5 motors and is wind-stable and quieter than a Quadcopter.
When does the H520 turn on 5 Motor Mode?
If a propeller breaks down or a motor fails, the H520 will switch to 5 Motor Mode and keeps flying.
What is the maximum takeoff weight of the H520?
Max 2,5 kg (takeoff weight incl. copter).
Which satellite systems does the H520 use?
The H520E/520 use GPS and GLONASS
How does the obstacle detection work?
The OBS is a forward faced system based on ultrasonic technology. If an obstacle is detected, the H520 will stop in 4,5m distance. Objects must be at least the size of a thumb to be recognized. The system can also be switched off. When the OBS is on, the airspeed is limited to 25 km/h.
Can maps be stored on the remote control?
Yes you can, but there is limited storage space. Make sure that no map is bigger than 100MB. This would slow down the system unnecessarily. Spread the area over several small maps instead.
How often do I have to calibrate my H520?
Basically, whenever the copter is not flying stable in the air despite having GPS signal available or if the remote control in the DataPilot shows a red status code under “summary” or “sensors”. Calibration after changing the location is not necessary.
I've already re-calibrated the H520, but the drone still flies quite unstable. What should I do?
When calibrating, make sure that there is no metal around the drone. This can affect the internal compass. Check the joystick movements in the RC Monitor. If the reactions to your movements are slow, you need to have your controller checked.
What happens if the radio connection to the H520 is lost?
There are two different radio links and two different types of connection losses. Communication lost – loss of image transmission (5.8GHz). The H520 remains fully controllable with all functions. As soon as the Copter regains a signal, the image transmission is restored.If the wireless connection is lost, the H520 automatically returns to the starting point. If the connection is restored during the return, RTL will not continue. The last known command will be executed.
What happens when the battery turns empty?
The H520 calculates depending on distance and battery voltage when emergency RTL is triggered. This ensures a safe return to the starting point. (From version 1.4.9)
Does the H520 have an emergency stop?
By lowering the stick “descend” and simultaneously pressing the red button three times, an emergency shutdown of the motors is triggered. Attention: Only use in an emergency case. A motor restart is not possible!
Are there any wearing parts? What is the maintenance interval?
The wear parts include: propellers, propeller mounts and batteries. Propellers and propeller mounts are made of plastic and can wear out. If the propeller still has play after locking it, the propeller and propeller mount must be replaced. After 200 flight hours, this should definitely happen to all 6 arms. Upset impurities (dust and sand, for example) can pollute the bearings of the motors or can settle in the mechanics of the landing gear. Often a careful blow with compressed air will help. If this does not help, the corresponding part must be exchanged. Therefore, please contact our technical service.
