Below are just a few of the benefits of choosing an md4-200 UAV:

icon compact size
Compact size simplifies transport.

The md4-200 is smaller and lighter than our other models, making it easier to take with you.

icon 30 minutes flight time
Fly up to 25 minutes.

The md4-200 delivers a longer flight time than nearly all of its competitors.

icon rain resistant
Fly in less-than-perfect weather.

The rugged carbon fiber body of the md4-200 can handle poor, rainy weather conditions.

icon out-of-the-box
Fly immediately.

Microdrones has developed a unique AHHRS (Attitude, Height, and Heading Reference System) that makes flying easy. Beginning pilots can usually learn to control our UAVs in less than an hour.

icon fly modes
Includes both manual and automatic control.

Fly manually with remote control or automatically using GPS Waypoint navigation.

icon Microdrones UAV payload
Respectable payload capacity.

md4-200 can carry a payload of up to 250 g (.6 lbs), which will accommodate many popular sensors and cameras.

icon Microdrones competitive pricing
Competitive pricing.

It’s now easier than ever to start incorporating professional drones into your business.
