465KV motors combined with 18.5” carbon fiber propellers and the 22.8V 6S 25,000mAh battery for superior aerial performance. 

Position Stability and Accuracy
(GNSS) receiver compatible with Real Time Kinetics (RTK) GNSS systems. The CAP50 utilizes a LiDAR range finder for altitude accuracy and vertical stability while flying. To ensure the drone has redundancy in the critical sensors needed for flight, CAP50 integrates 2 magnetometers, 2 accelerometers, 2 gyro, and 2 barometers. A battery current and voltage sensor is used to track battery level. 

Object Avoidance
The CAP50 has 360 degree collision avoidance. The collision avoidance system is LiDAR range finder based, and will work in day or nighttime conditions.
