Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC). The CX-20 Auto Pathfinder has the Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC) function of the MX autopilot system commonly known as Headless flying. Usually, the forward direction of a flying multi-rotor is the same as the nose direction. By using Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC), wherever the nose points, the forward direction has nothing to do with nose direction: In course lock flying, the forward direction is the same as a recorded nose direction. In home lock flying, the forward direction is the same as the direction from home point to the multi-rotor.

Failsafe and Auto Go Home/Landing. The CX-20 Auto Pathfinder has the failsafe function of the MX Autopilot system. This means when the communication between the MX Controller and the transmitter is disconnected, the outputs of all command sticks from controller will go to the center position. If the GPS signal is good enough, the system will automatically trigger Return To Home and will land safely.

Low Voltage Protection. The CX-20 Auto Pathfinder has two levels of low voltage protection, a function of the MX Autopilot system. It prevents your multi-rotor from crashing or other harmful consequences caused by low battery voltage. In the first level of protection, the LED indicator blinks and makes a sound of to warn you. In the second level of protection the system will trigger the CX-20 Auto Pathfinder to land automatically.

10m/s Maximum Flight Speed. The maximum horizontal flight speed of the CX-20 Auto Pathfinder can reach 10m/s and the maximum vertical speed is around 6 m/s. The perfect combination of speed and stability allows you to experience the thrill of flying the CX-20 Auto Pathfinder.

High intensity LED lights aid orientation during flight. Under each arm of the Auto-Pathfinder there are some high intensity LED indicators which are used to help you to see the orientation during flight and are useful for flying in low light.

GoPro Camera Mount (camera not included). The CX-20 Auto Pathfinder has an external removable camera mount for you to attach light action cameras such as the GoPro or Mobius or any other light weight video recording device. Recording your flight video is extremely effortless.

Flight time of 10 to 15 minutes. Included with the CX-20 Auto Pathfinder kit is a 3S Lithium Polymer (Li-Po) battery with a 2700 mAh capacity, weighing in at only 180 grams and a balance battery charger. With the sleek design and light air frame, the normal flying time will be between 15 to 20 minutes. This is dependent on the camera weight and gimbal if used. We recommend you purchase additional batteries to prolong your flying time.

Please Note: We advise you rest your CX20 RC Quadcopter between flights as this prevents overheating of the motors.
