Octocopter DJI S1000

Octocopter DJI S1000

First, I think that the same question raises with quadcopters and hexacopters. We made a comparative analysis between quadcopters and hexacopters in terms of positive features and drawbacks in a previous post. It is clear that most of the features are applied to the case of Octocopters. With Octocopters we have more power, stability and high flight speed. Below we show a selection of the best octocopters you could find in the market. As in the case of hexacopter, just keep in mind that in general, the price is higher since the frame is larger and the number of engines and complexity increases. However, for professional works and applications in which precision, stability, and flight performance are required, hexacopters and octocopters are more recommended than quadcopters. There are much less Octocopters than quadcopters or hexacopters. Below we show our selection list:
