The powerful X8 multirotor drone by Xer Technologies is BVLOS-ready and can be flown in the EASA “Open” and “Specific” categories.

European-made with a heavy payload capacity, the X8 delivers over 2.5 hours flight endurance with 3kg payload. The system can be rapidly deployed and airborne in just two minutes, whilst the lightweight carbon-fiber airframe features foldable quick-release arms for easy transportation.

Powered by a hybrid fuel-electric propulsion system, the X8 is an ideal platform to extend flight endurance and operating range beyond the capabilities of conventional battery powered drones.

Engineered for high performance under highly challenging conditions, including high altitudes, sub-zero temperatures, and wind speeds of up to 35 knots, the X8 can be adapted to undertake a broad range of applications:


SAR & Disaster Relief – Rapid deployment and enhanced flight endurance makes the X8 ideal for search and rescue and disaster relief operations. Capable of operating in extreme weather conditions when time is of the essence, the X8’s heavy payload capacity can also be used to drop a variety of critical items to people in need.
