Due to high demand, all IRIS+ orders have a 10-15 business day lead time.
The 3DR IRIS+ is your aerial passport: all you need to get started shooting photos and video from incredible new perspectives. Powered by 3DR’s world famous Pixhawk autopilot, IRIS+ is a robot that will automatically fly itself where you tell it to go, while keeping a camera dead steady with two-axis gimbal stabilization. And it’s so smart that it’s simple. You can fly manually using the controller or use the advanced 3PV Follow Me mode that turns IRIS+into your own hands-free camera crew. And our tablet-based software makes flight planning exactly this easy: If you can draw it, you can fly it. The IRIS+ power system gets you 16 minutes of flight time fully loaded, and you’ll want to fill every second. IRIS+includes the advanced Pixhawk autopilot system, a high-capacity flight battery, battery charger, ground station radio, and remote controller: everything you need to make IRIS+ your personal aerial photographer.

Ready to Fly - Inside the IRIS+ box is everything you need to fly. Simply attach the props, charge the battery, and you’re ready to fly manually with the included remote controller autonomously with a Mac, PC or Android device.
Follow Me - 3DR’s 3rd Person View (3PV) Follow Me technology turns your IRIS+ into your own hands-free aerial camera crew that puts you in the middle of your own adventure. IRIS+ can be easily setup to follow any GPS enabled Android device. Not only will IRIS+follow you, but this advanced technology controls the gimbal to keep the camera centered on you, capturing sweeping cinematic video from a perspective unlike any other.
Automatic Mission Planning - Using the free DroidPlanner app, IRIS+ users can plan flights by simply drawing a flight plan on any Android tablet or phone. This allows for hands free flight control, your drone will go where you tell it to go, with virtually unlimited waypoints - even keep IRIS+ pointing to the same location via a Region of Interest (ROI) waypoint throughout the entire flight. This enables fun autonomous journeys, and automatically stabilized video capture that would be otherwise impossible.
Flight Protection - The IRIS+ can land itself automatically, or return to a home point if it travels out of range or runs out of battery.
*Flight time varies with payload, wind conditions, altitude, temperature, humidity, flying style, and pilot skill.

Telemetry radio frequency: Telemetry radios allow your ground station computer to communicate with your aircraft wirelessly, providing unparalleled ease of use for viewing real-time flight data, changing missions on the fly, tuning, and using an Android tablet as a ground station. Select 915 Mhz for the US and 433 Mhz for Europe. Frequency regulations vary by country, so consult your local airspace communication authority if you're uncertain which frequency is legal in your area.

Due to the rich feature set and fully-autonomous capabilities of Arducopter code, the learning curve can appear somewhat intimidating. Fortunately, the suite of components has made this endeavor very straightforward and achievable.
Please do not be tempted to skip over steps and rush into flight. This is robotics and aviation combined–both of which are quite complex on their own. Follow the steps patiently, and you will have your robot safely up in the air.
Autonomous robots, flying machines, high-energy power systems, driving rotating blades — you are in charge of these potential hazards. Always follow best safety practices and pay close attention to safety warnings.
All of us involved with this project care a great deal about the privacy and safety of those whom we share this planet with. Please be a good steward of this technology. It is the product of many evenings and weekends, we make it available for benevolent use.
