OnyxStar FOX-C8, compact and lightweight 8 coaxial motors drone

As one of the first OnyxStar drones ever developped, the FOX-C8 has already been actively operated for years now. Thanks to that experience, the FOX-C8 has been improved in accordance to terrain feedback and is now one of the most efficient and adapted UAV for commercial applications.

The FOX-C8 is the OnyxStar reference that exists also in other versions like the FOX-C8 HD and the FOX-C8 XT.


What makes the FOX-C8 so successful relies on its compact dimensions compared to its working capacity.

Indeed, this drone can be easily carried in a standard car with its 93 cm span (36.6 in). This also applies to transportation on the field as the FOX-C8 has an empty weight of only 2.5 Kg (5.5 lbs). This is why this drone smart conception allows limitless opportunities.


Despite its lightweight, the FOX-C8 remains an extremely efficient tool, able to carry up to 2.5 Kg (5.5 lbs) of payload. As most cameras are getting lighter days after days while enhancing the output quality, this means qualitative work can be achieved with the FOX.

Carbon made and equipped with 8 coaxial motors, this UAV is a powerful system that flies perfectly in demanding environments. As a matter of fact, the FOX-C8 was successfully tested in mountain conditions where it performed flights starting from 11.000 ft MSL (3350m above sea level).


Several kind of sensors can be lifted by the FOX-C8, explaining why this drone is considered a multitasking solution. DSLR, infrared, multispectral and thermal cameras are among the many sensors that can be operated in the air by using this UAV.

The adaptive gimbal delivered with the FOX-C8 explains why it can work for a broad range of application.


More than just a powerful system, the FOX-C8 is also a reliable and safe tool. Manufactured according to OnyxStar know-how and dedication, this drone flies with high quality German-made electronics having countless features for both navigation and security (Waypoint navigation, Automatic take-off and landing, Failsafe, Geo-fencing, Redundancy, etc.).

Choosing the FOX-C8 means working with an adaptive, high quality and hard working drone already approved by numerous professionnals.
