Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to get Draco flying?
Draco ships with nearly everything required to get flying – it is what is known as almost ready to fly (ARTF). To begin flying, you will need to purchase a supported transmitter. Once you have completed the binding process with Draco you can fly line of sight (LOS) immediately. If you wish get the full FPV experience, you will need a pair of 5.8GHz FPV goggles as well, however this is optional. Everything else is included in the box.
What is the flight time of Draco?
Both models of Draco come with a 1600maH 4S LiPo with a max discharge rate of 75c. This enables Draco to have extremely fast acceleration and a high-top speed.
When it comes to Draco’s total flight time, it is extremely variable depending on how you are flying at the time. For example, in race conditions where Draco is at top speed on a regular basis, the flight time is likely to be around 2-3 minutes.
This is usually long enough for a high-speed race under competitive conditions and is in-line with other racing drones on the market. If you are flying Draco at a more relaxed pace with a mixture of high / low speed, flight times of 9-10 minutes can be achieved. It is extremely dependent to the exact flight conditions as well. Large periods of hovering will reduce flight time as more energy is consumed hovering than in forward flight.
Weather conditions, such as high winds can also be a contributing factor. Please take all of the above into consideration when flying Draco and ensure you keep an eye on the OSD in your FPV goggles. You should be looking to land at around 14v.
What is the KV of The Draco Motors?
We have received a few questions relating to the KV of the Motors on Draco. The Custom Designed UVify Motors which are on Draco are 2300KV.
How can I change the settings on my Draco?
When you receive your Draco, it will be set-up in Angle mode. Angle mode is the best set-up for beginners who haven’t flown before. If you are an experienced Pilot or feel you’d like to try the other flight modes available, you can do so by using the UVify configurator.
How many Cycles per battery?
Draco’s Smart battery has been developed by UVify to achieve maximum performance and reliability in-flight. It is important that you ensure your battery is correctly looked after and maintained by carrying out regular charging and discharging of the unit.
With a well-maintained Draco Battery, you should be looking at 150+ high performance cycles of the battery before performance begins to degrade gradually as with any LiPO of this nature.
If you notice any unusual behavior from your battery or poor performance, please contact us by raising a ticket within the help center. One of our team will be on hand to assist.
What are the Battery Specs?
Draco and Draco HD ship with our custom-designed Smart Battery. The Specification of the battery is as follows:
75c Discharge rate
Hot swappable functionality
No external wires
Draco ships with 1 battery in the box (Excluding special bundles). You can purchase additional Draco batteries from our on-line store singularly or in multipacks at a discounted price.
Aftermarket Propellers for Draco?
Draco and Draco HD ship with propellers in the box. In addition to this, UVify will offer propeller packs of various colours for customization and increased flight performance. These packs are now available in the store for purchase.
If you purchase Draco, you can fit your own aftermarket props if you wish to do so. Below is a list of supported and recommended propellers for Draco:
DAL 5045 Tri-blades
DAL 5050C Tri-blades
GEMFAN 5045 Tri-blades
Difference between Draco and Draco HD?
To look at, the difference between Draco and Draco HD is very subtle. On the outside, the visual differences will be the Antenna’s and the camera and lens. However, internally they are very different craft. Draco comes with 5.8GHz Analog video transmission – the most commonly used set-up in use by pilots and racers all over the World. Draco HD, however, comes with a Digital Video transmission system, allowing for better visual clarity, higher resolution of image and no video interference.
Draco HD is designed around the Connex Prosight system. You’ll need a Connex Prosight Receiver to receive the transmission which in turn, outputs the video feed to HD FPV goggles via a HDMI cable. Draco on the other hand only requires a 5.8GHz compatible pair of FPV goggles to stream the feed to your eyes wirelessly.
Draco HD has superior visuals all round compared to the analog system. However, analog is the more affordable and is widely recognized as the current “Standard” which most Drone Racing organizations and clubs use.
You’ll need to decide which Draco is right for you, weighing up the pro’s and con’s of each system. However, if you do decide to go for Draco and wish to upgrade to Draco HD at a later stage, we will offer an upgrade kit on the UVify store which will allow you to swap out the components in your current Draco to upgrade it to the HD version – giving you the best of both World’s with zero compromise.
