Byrd X Stretching Gimbal – automatically stretches when the drone takes off, and automatically packs up when returning. It can freely shoot without obstructing any angle. The stretching gimbal can carry all the same type of GDU gimbal/camera options.

Byrd X Infrared Camera (Resolution: 640×480) – the GDU developed infrared camera can measure heat accurately, even under little to no light, to recover an accurate image analysis. As a flying temperature monitor control, it has been widely applied in fields such as agricultural management, outdoor exploration, fire hazard monitoring, and search & rescue.

“GDU has truly changed the game with this new line of camera gimbals,” stated Nicolia Wiles, GDU Director of Digital. “No longer will drone users need to purchase multiple drones to complete different jobs – from aerial photography and videography, to construction monitoring to search and rescue – the new Byrd Universal Flying Platform can handle everything.”
