iflight Taurus X8 Cinelifter Drone Frame

Let's introduce our new iFlight Taurus X8, our heavy-duty gear to lift those big cams!

Engineered with professionals for professionals, a BNF that's aimed for carrying big payloads offering a soft-damped universal platform for DSLR or cinema cameras (Red Komodo, Zcam, BMPCC,  etc) ready for DJI's FPV HD transmission system or any analog VTX. Redundant ESC mounts and motor setup for maximum performance but also a safety factor. Even in case of an overload or failure, one remaining ESC and 4 motors will be able to carry your expensive camera back to you. In case you get troubles with signal interference, radio signal loss, or complete FPV transmission fails the additional GPS rescue feature (if GPS installed and activated with the rescue feature) will automatically take over control, climb to max flight altitude, and descent towards your liftoff location until the signal transmission is regained (no automated landing). The integrated TPU landing gear provides sufficient height for most terrain and offers some protection on harder landings.

2kg maximum payload for a variety of top-mounted cameras and the ability to fine-adjust the stable mount for a perfectly balanced CG (Center of Gravity). The underslung battery acts as a power source as well as a counterweight to strategically slide the weight more front or back to counter camera lenses of different weight or length. The adjustable CNC aluminum mount offers angles from 5 to 35 degrees and can be safely secured for reproducible outcomes. No jello, no jitter, no problem; Our silicon-ball dampened carbon camera base is decoupled from the rest of the frame to reduce the amount of vibration generated by motors and propellers. For the perfect cinematic shot we recommend and additional software stabilization in the post or a hardware module (for example SteadXP).

The estimated flight time with 6S 4500mAh and attached cinema camera is about 4-6min, depending on speed and wind conditions! (no battery included with the frame kit)


  • Redundant ESC and motor mount configuration
  • Stable silicon-ball decoupled camera CNC mount
  • GPS module ready (additional item, not included)
  • 2kg max payload for various cinema and DSLR cameras
  • Optimized CG through the adjustable camera and battery mount

This frame is nuts…

First off the build diagram is HORRIBLE! Almost as if IFlight is still using a Xerox machine from the 1980’s. There are decent build videos out there on assembling this beast. I suggest you better be an expert on building quads. Second, once you’ve managed to put this piggy together, she is a beast! IFlight does an excellent job giving you extra nuts and bolts for many different configurations, types of vtx, analog and digital, and everything in between. I use this in my profession rig, and looks even better with a Komodo attached on a table full of DJI Inspires. Very sharp and clean. The camera mount is by far one of the most robust mounts I’ve ever seen on a flat carbon plate style multi rotor, and when used with the recommended motor, have NO ISSUES carrying the 8lb load of a fully kitted (with lens) Komodo. Like, no issues. None. Doesn’t even get warm. I highly recommend this frame and would love to share my build, as I made some modifications to the electronics for an even more reliable system.
