Pavo360, the newest generation of 360 FPV quadcopter, generated by BETAFPV, has superb performance in its recording, flying performance, stability, and design. The drone comes with landing gear, protecting the camera lens when the quadcopter lands on the surface, giving the Pavo360 ability to land anywhere. The ultra-thin and flat frame design made sure the drone is completely invisible when recording a video with the SMO360 panoramic camera.
The Pavo360 is the first 360 FPV drone with landing gear generated by BETAFPV. Compared with X-Knight 360 FPV Quadcopter, it protects the camera lens when the quadcopter takes down from air to surface, the Pavo360 is able to land on most flat surfaces.
Both analog and HD Digital VTX versions come with Toothpick F722 AIO 35A FC, 2204-2400KV motor & Gemfan D76 5-Blades props, this highly efficient propulsion system lays the foundation for powerful and stable flight.
Equipped with a newly developed Pavo360 frame, which is made of PA12 material, it has higher abrasion resistance, toughness, and shows excellent impact resistance in drop & impact tests.
The ultra-thin and flat frame design with SMO 360 Camera (not included) makes it possible to record and enjoy the 360 videos without any unseen areas. Pavo360 is perfectly called an invisible drone.
There are two versions for Pavo360 FPV Quadcopter. Both versions support the SMO360 Camera. Please note that the Pavo360 camera mount is suitable for the SMO360 Camera only and other cameras can not be installed. We highly recommend buying BETAFPV SMO 360 Camera together.
