Graceful by Nature. Strong by Design.

Graceful by Nature.
Strong by Design.

The EVOLVE 2 is a graceful and well-balanced aircraft designed with both the strongest and lightest materials that not only withstand the tests of time and weather but also provide a unique, comfortable, intelligent, and safe flight experience. Taking inspiration from nature, the silhouette of the body is optimized to increase efficiency during flight.

Monocoque Chassis

Lightweight Vibration Absorber and Heat Sink

The monocoque carbon fiber airframe is a structural skin system that supports loads with its external skin, similar to an egg. The design concept began with boats but quickly was adapted by the aircraft industry before being introduced to automotive racing by McLaren’s MP4/1 Formula One car and ultimately spacecraft like the SpaceX Falcon 1.

Monocoque construction is ideal for aircraft and when combined with carbon fiber you create a lighter, faster and stronger aircraft. Rather than relying on internal beams and other internal reinforcements to produce structural support, the EVOLVE 2 utilizes a single sheet of 3K twill carbon fiber to form the drone’s airframe. We believe these modern materials and design provide the finest airframe available on any drone platform today.

Magnesium Undercarriage

Lightweight and Resistant Structure for Maximum Protection

Similarly to the carbon fiber featured on the EVOLVE 2, the magnesium underbody allows for a lighter weight and higher strength. Magnesium alloy is 34% lighter than aluminum and 76% lighter than steel while 20 times stiffer than thermoplastics featured on most other drones. The magnesium underbody also absorbs shock far more than standard aluminum which creates better efficiencies, improved flight times, and reductions in vibration and noise. The heatsink design featured on the magnesium underbody provides great heat dissipation, cooling the aircraft during times of high usage.

3K Twill Carbon Fiber

Feather Weight and Stronger Than Steel

The EVOLVE 2 carbon fiber airframe is custom made by XDynamics and is intricately constructed over 26 stages from one sheet of carbon fiber by highly skilled technicians.

With the highest strength to weight ratio and tensile strength over 50 times that of plastics (most other drones), the EVOLVE 2 is designed to fly for many years to come.

Our custom 3K Twill has higher elongation before failure making it stronger than other patterns like 6K or 9K. 3K has a smaller bundle of fibers, thinner fabric and can be woven without affecting the stiffness and strength of the overall airframe while providing superior protection for the aircraft’s sensitive components.

High Powered Propulsion Unit

Fly Faster and Smarter

Engineered and manufactured exclusively by XDynamics; the EVOLVE 2 propulsion system combines high-power 530 KV motors delivering a thrust of 3.7lbs each and optimized propellers increasing the aircraft’s propulsion force while lowering noise and wind resistance.

The EVOLVE 2 reaches an impressive 55 mph (88 km/h) top speed for automotive, action sports and other applications. The proprietary electronic speed controllers provide fast reaction time from your hands to the aircraft to ensure safety and precision during high-speed flight.

Propellers and Motors

Designed to Increase Efficiency

Trapezoid Boom Design

The trapezoid shape of the boom layout provides multiple advantages; higher torque, wider field of view and better air flow.

Optimized Propellers Design

The newly designed Dyna-WING 2 propellers are 13″ in length and feature a slightly raised tip which creates an air foil that reduces drag and noise levels by 10 dB in comparison to the EVOLVE. The overlapping propellers allow for a compact design without giving up thrust or power.

Motor Inclination

The motor inclination angle provides better stability in the air and helps offer smoother and more fluid yaw motion.

Motor Height

The motor height not only allows for overlapping propellers but is also designed for highly efficient prop wash and control. The elevated front motors increase the camera field of view as an additional bonus.

Boom Shape Design

Emulating the wing of an aircraft, the shape of the boom was specifically designed to create lift, increase the flight performance and airtime duration.

Patented Quick Release System For More Safety

The EVOLVE 2 has a patented snap-on quick release mechanism that provides a fast, safe and secure method to snap-on, lock and unlock the Dyna-WING 2 propellers. Black clockwise and white counterclockwise icon markers on the propeller system and the white/red lock icons, making it a dual safety system that ensures the secure assembly of the props every time you fly.

LiDar Technology

High Precision and Accuracy in Distance Measurement

LiDAR measures distance to a target by illuminating it with a pulsed laser light and measuring the reflected pulses with a sensor. The system was born at Hughes Aircraft Company in 1961, shortly after the invention of the laser.

The EVOLVE 2 is one of the first drone platforms to use LiDAR technology as a sensor support system and operates at 50mw with a range of 0.1m to 10m. The high frequency of the wave length provides highly precise and accurate distance measurement making it extremely efficient for take-off and landing as well as sorties in poor weather conditions.

Photographer Piet Zwart said, “Color is a creative element and not just a trimming”. At XDynamics, we tend to agree with Piet. The EVOLVE 2 drone platform allows you to customize the LED lights on the aircraft providing stunning live-action hyperlapse shots and other amazing effects. In addition, if you are flying more than one sortie with other pilots – you can customize the rear lights to differentiate your aircraft from others flying near you.
