Be the first to review this product


Quick Overview

The AQ-08-GPS is built from strong yet light weight composite and fiberglass materials featuring extra strong color coded legs with color coded LED’s for easier orientation. This drone has advanced GPS capabilities thanks to the equipped Mega 2.52 MX flight control system with GPS unit, 3-axis gyro, accelerometer, magnetometer and high-performance barometer. Multiple flight modes can be programed via the open source Mission Planner software and set to your transmitter. There is more than enough power to carry a Go-Pro or other similar video camera thanks to the four 2212 brushless outrunner 920KV motors with four 40 amp Hobbywing Skywalker electronic speed controllers. The AeroSky drone comes with the main components pre-assembled right out of the box. It is pre-programmed from the factory with an X pattern flight setting and setup in 4 axis mode. Install the propellers and you’re ready to fly this awesome machine.

The AQ-08 is packed with the latest cutting edge drone technology. They are used not only by hobbyists for fun but also for professional use, mainly for aerial filming and remote viewing. If you're new to RC drones then here is an introduction to the cool features found on this model:

GPS Automatic Take Off & Landing

With a normal radio controlled helicopter or quadcopter one of the most difficult things is taking off and landing. For beginners it usually leads to crashes. But with GPS automatic take off just arm the system and then select take off. The drone will automatically take off and hover without any further input needed! Ready to land? You no longer need to carefully reduce throttle while trying to keep the model flat, instead just hit the land switch and the drone will automatically land itself!

GPS Position Hold

No more having to constantly adjust for wind and movement. With GPS position hold you can let go of the controls and the drone will stay hovering in that position. This makes flying so much easier and stable. The GPS module knows where it is so can stay at those co-ordinates even if the wind blows.

Route Plotting Software

Using open source Mission Planner software from you can pre-programme a flight path for the drone to fly. This software shows no fly zones and detailed earth views, perfect for site monitoring and advanced applications.

Compass Function

The compass function makes flying the RC drone much easier. Without this feature a drone will be controlled like a helicopter whereby to go in a certain direction the helicopter must be rotated to face that direction and then you go forward. With the compass turned on it no longer matters which way the drone is pointing, when you push forward on the transmitter the drone will always move away from the take off position, and the same with the other directions regardless of which way it is pointing.

Altitude Hold

With industrial grade MEMS sensors the C6 will also hold it's height automatically with less drift than other drones on the market. Unlike a traditional helicopter or quadcopter the throttle stick is spring loaded as altitude control becomes much simpler. You can just push up to make the drone fly higher and push down for lower but then just release the throttle to hover at that height.

GPS Return To Home On Signal Loss Or Request

The GPS return to home feature is fantastic. The drone remembers the coordinates that it took off from. If you fly outside the transmitter range or the signal is lost for any reason such as your transmitter batteries go flat then the drone will automatically return to where it took off and land. You also have the option to enable return to home at any time even if the signal is not lost by just flipping the return to home switch.

Low Voltage Safety

Another great feature that will keep your drone safer. The on-board computer will detect if the battery voltage is getting low and transmit a warning to the pilot to let you know it's time to land. If the battery gets even emptier then the drone will then proceed to land itself to ensure it does not stall and crash.

1300g Payload

This is more than enough to carry most mini HD video cameras like the Go Pro or Sony Action Cam for high quality recording.

Modular Design

You may have seen some other drones on the market that are enclosed in a white one piece case. Although these may look a little nicer in practical terms they are not as good. If you do have a crash it usually means the whole system needs transferring to a new case but with a modular design like on the C6 just the broken arm or part can be replaced. The parts are made from special high impact carbon fiber but if you did need to replace any part we stock all the parts for making easy repairs.


We're very confident that you will not find an RC drone with all the features at this price, even drones with less features sell for a lot more.

You seem to have overlooked what the range is, hight/distance? thanks!


  • Posted by Geo Rodriguez on Friday, March 27, 2015

    The range is approximately 1000ft, but much rather keep in in the LOS (Line of Sight).

Can this drone bo folded? If so, what are the demensions for the drone when it is folded?


  • Posted by The Hobbyworx on Friday, November 21, 2014

    Unfortunately, this drone can not be folded into a smaller piece than its original size.

Does this come with a Receiver ? I want to use my own...any problem doing that?


  • Posted by The Hobbyworx on Friday, November 14, 2014

    This is the PNP version which means its Plug n' Play. This means you will need to supply your own Radio equipment (Receiver & Transmitter), Li-po battery for the model, Li-po battery charger, and batteries for the transmitter. 

    There is no problem using your own receiver, as long as you have a transmitter that is compatible with the receiver, your good to go.
