Please do not hesitate to call us and ask for Tom or Ed at 714-939-7895. We are on Pacific coast time and will be happy to answer any questions on your aerial needs.
 
Package now includes carbon blades valued at more than $200
 
Turbo Ace has been designing and manufacturing cutting edge RC products since 2008 and over these past years we have shipped over one thousand X830 quadcopters. The X88-J2 octocopter is serviced and supported in California, USA with our tech hotline at 714-939-7895. We do ship to international destination, however due to the size of this package, you will not be able to complete checkout if you have an overseas address, so please contact us by email for international shipping quotations.
 
Important: Telemetry with wireless voltage monitoring and alarm are not available with this unit as the Devo 7 transmitter with this package does not support it. If you wish to have these features in the future, you can order the package with the Devo 10 with the optional telemetry monitoring system.

  TURBO ACE X88-J2 OCTOCOPTER- SINGLE OPERATOR
 
* Newest DJI firmware programmed and tuned for improved wind resistance
* Upgraded high torque motors for higher and more reliable payload capacity
* Carbon fiber propellers are included for optimum performance under heavier payloads
* An amazing 6LB payload capacity just for the camera mount and the camera.

Note: Most octocopters will only carry 3-4 LB minus the weight of the flight battery. The X88-J2 can carry 5LB using 12" plastic propellers plus 2 large 5300mah batteries or 6LB using optional 12" precision carbon fiber propellers plus 2 large 5300mah batteries. Because of X88-J2's superior light weight design you are able to carry more weight (one extra pound) while maintaining optimum structure integrity for outstanding aerial videos.

Note: This is a TURBO ACE X88-J2 RTF (ready to fly) package. To reduce shipping size and prevent damage, propellers and landing skids are dismounted after individual flight test and prior to shipping. End user can easily re-install them in about 15 minutes.
  
Note: With your initial X88-J2 purchase, you have the option to include fully integrated telemetry and/or camera mounts which includes installation and after sales support for the options. If you choose to purchase these additional options on a separate order, you shall be responsible for the integration even when all the optional modules are purchased from us. Similarly, when you want GPS module on a car you must purchase a car with the GPS already installed. If you purchase the GPS separately did your own installation, the manufacturer is not obligated to train you to install the GPS module on the car and any problems arising from such installation is your responsibility. To get a "camera ready" aerial platform, you need to order a X88-J2 Octocopter with a fully installed and supported camera mount integration. Please go to the following links.

X88-J2 FEATURES
 
* Super Rigid Expanded Carbon Stacked Structure is extraordinarily lighter and stronger than all current designs based on sandwiched booms and plastic molds. At 4.8 pounds without the battery, X88's super structure features (1) an expanding CNC aluminum reinforced carbon fiber stacked central main frame anchored by 4 sets of radiating carbon fiber arms that will not sag and bounce under heavier payloads (2) optimized boom distance with lighter square aluminum tubing with anti-twist mounts that extend out to the motors significantly reducing weight around the parameters for excellent maneuverability (3) spacing within each carbon fiber arm provides propeller cooled ESC locations (4) sturdy CNC mounting locations at the end of each arm facilitate an extra wide landing skid (5) foldable joints for portability, traveling and shipping.
* Care Free Home Lock Flight Mode utilizes the octocopter's take off home position as a reference point for orientation/heading. The pilot no longer needs to maintain a tail-in (tail towards the pilot) orientation to keep track of the octocopter's heading. Pushing the cyclic stick up will always result in the helicopter flying forward and away from the pilot. Pulling the cyclic stick down will result in the octocopter backing up towards the pilot which in turn provides a very reliable "come home" solution. Similarly the roll (left & right) controls will correspond to the pilots home position without any mental acrobatics. Although the pilot can still use yaw to turn or spin the octocopter, it will not affect the pilot's flight orientation from the home position. After activation, this Home Lock mode will be effective when the octocopter is beyond 30 feet from the take off position. Home Lock mode is the most convenient and preferred mode for pilots who like to fly facing the octocopter.
* Care Free Course Lock Flight Mode utilizes the octocopter's initial take off heading direction as a reference direction for the duration of the flight. For example if the octocopter and the pilot's transmitter is facing north in the take off position, the octocopter will always treat the north as the direction (heading) for forward flight even if the yaw has rotated the front of the octocopter to a different direction. After activation this Course Lock mode will be effective when the octocopter is beyond 30 feet from the take off position. The best way to use the Course Lock mode is to keep the transmitter facing the initial take off heading direction during the entire flight even if this means the pilot has to turn his head to see the octocopter.
* GPS Lock enables the X88-J to lock into a self sustaining hover at a fixed GPS location with a flip of a switch on the transmitter. Even when the octocopter is pulled away from its locked location, it will return to that original location. This a very useful and precise locking function that operates within a few feet (about 1 foot vertical and up to 6 feet radius) depending on the quality of GPS satellite signals and the flying environment.
* Dual Stage Fail Safe Mode offers a backup plan when the octocopter receiver looses connection with the transmitter. When this occurs, the octocopter will automatically return to the point above the home GPS position. Hovering at about 60 feet, the pilot may be able to re-established connection and manually land the octocopter. If connection is not re-established, then the octocopter will automatically lands in fail safe mode. Also, if the octocopter battery is low, it will start an auto landing sequence before it runs out of power.
* Dynamically Balanced Brushless Motors reduces high frequency vibrations at the source. This can only be accomplished at our motor factory using a specialized motor balancer to spin up each individual motors to its operating RPM range. Similar to balancing tires, tiny weights are positioned along the edges of the rotating motor drum to achieve smooth rotations.   
* 35A ESCs with Cooling Algorithm offers extra capacity for continued operation without a fan or cooling-off periods between flights.
* 7° Inclined Arms for exceptionally fast and agile maneuverability with minimum tilt or roll.
* Foldable Arm Joints for safer transportation and traveling.
* Anti-static Design prevents video signal interference and catastrophic electronic damage. Although carbon fiber is an excellent choice for many structural solutions, it's the #1 cause of static electricity under spinning propellers. For a safer design without interference, X88's carbon fiber central main frame seamlessly transitions to square aluminum booms under the propellers.
* Modularized Design for ease of maintenance and repair. With strategically placed connectors and brackets, all individual components on the X88 can be easily disconnected or removed.
* USA Parts Support for fast and easy continued access to parts, upgrades and accessories.
* Optional 2 or 3-axis Camera Mounts for a variety of cameras and camcorders.
* Optional Automated Gyro Compensation for the camera mount: Requires a secondary Xaircraft flight controller and 3-axis gyro.
* Optional Dual Pilot with secondary receiver and transmitter for the camera man.
* Optional single way point and multiple way point GPS with PC connections can be purchased separately.
* Professional Aluminum Carrying Case is customized to fit the X88-J octocopter with the arms folded up for shipping without any gimbal or camera attached. However, after you have installed a gimbal/camera on the bottom of the octocopter, you can use the aluminum case to carry the octocopter with the arms folded down around the gimbal/camera. Dimension 43cm x 43cm x 47cm.
