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 (See list). 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 (See list) , 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.

Does Draco come with a Transmitter?

Draco does not currently ship with a transmitter – you will need to purchase one separately. The reason for this decision was to keep the cost down to the consumer who may already have a transmitter to hand. In the future, we will be offering bundles which will include a transmitter with Draco. At this time, we have no ETA on when this will be.

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.

Can I switch from HD to Analog?

Yes you can! Thanks to the way we have designed Draco, you will be able to switch a Draco HD to an analog system and vice versa. To do this, you will need to purchase either the Analog kit or HD Kit from the UVify Store. Some understanding of disassembly and building of racing drones will be required. Full documentation on the installation of these kits will be available when they come to market. Please look for announcements regarding these kits in the near future.

Can I upgrade to Draco HD?

Yes you can! Thanks to the way we have designed Draco, you will be able to upgrade a Draco to a Draco HD and vice versa. To do this, you will need to purchase either the Analog kit or HD Kit from the UVify Store. Some understanding of disassembly and building of racing drones will be required. Full documentation on the installation of these kits will be available when they come to market. Please look for announcements regarding these kits in the near future.

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 behaviour 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.

Which Transmitters work with Draco?

This Document contains a list of Transmitters which are known to work with Draco. At present, we offer 2 variants of the Draco. A DSMX (Spektrum) Draco and a Turnigy Evolution Draco. At this time, we do not offer an FrSky Draco.

DSMX Draco Transmitter Support

Spektrum DX6
Spektrum DX6e
Spektrum DX7
Spektrum DX9 v2
TBS Tango
Taranis (With Orange Module Only)
Note: The DXe does not Bind with Draco. Do not purchase this transmitter with the intention of flying Draco.

Other DSMX transmitters will work, but may require advanced understanding of the transmitter and is only recommended to those that are experienced users.

What are the Battery Specs?

Draco and Draco HD ship with our custom-designed Smart Battery. The Specification of the battery is as follows:

1600MaH Capacity
75c Discharge rate
Hot swappable functionality
No external wires
Overcharge protection
Discharge protection
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.

Which FPV goggles work with Draco HD?

Draco HD uses the Connex Prosight system. To be able to use Goggles with Draco HD, you will require a pair that support HDMI input (Any variant). Some supported goggles are listed below and we will continue to update this list as new FPV goggles are released.

Supported Goggles

Avegant Glypths
Fatshark Dominator HD2
Fatshark Dominator HD3
Headplay 7 Headset

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 customisation 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 are a list of supported and recommended propellers for Draco:

Supported Propellers

DAL 5045 Tri-blades

DAL 5050C Tri-blades
GEMFAN 5045 Tri-blades

If you are flying Draco at a more relaxed pace with a mixture of high / low speed, flight times of 10-12 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.

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 recognised 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.
