Capable of a dynamic range of flight characteristics, payload capacities ranging from 1.2 lbs to 6.5 lbs, and able to sustain a maximum speed of 93 mph, the FlexForce FPV System easily and quickly adapts to a variety of mission requirements. The quick-exchange assembly allows an operator to adjust between sizes in minutes without the use of specialized tools or components.

The FlexForce Core, the foundation of the FlexForce FPV System, is a tightly integrated FPV airframe that offers the modern FPV pilot a variety of flight modes, including Full Acrobatic, GPS Assist & Waypoint Mission.

The FlexForce Core features an onboard Sony camera alongside a variety of payload attachment mechanisms that accommodate a variety of payloads. The ultra-low latency video feed from the FPV Core can be displayed to both the FPV Goggles and external monitors.

These technologies, along with others, were recently on display during a FPV UAV Training & Demonstration Event held in March 2024 at Fort Liberty, North Carolina. During this 2-day event, Draganfly FPV pilots and subject matter experts assisted over 200 members of the Special and Conventional forces in gaining valuable exposure and training for FPV UAV operations.
