Extreme delivery

The Universal Flying Platform changes the drone game completely. No longer will people need to buy a new drone just to upgrade to the newest cameras. Because of Byrd’s extreme power and modular gimbal system, you can simply swap out an older camera gimbal for the latest and greatest camera. Not only that, users can switch out cameras based on their specific needs – change out a 4K for video to an infrared for search and rescue to a 10X optical zooming camera for industrial inspection. 

Extremely Portable

Because the Byrd folds up to the size of an iPad, it takes up far less space than most drones on the market today. No longer do you need large, bulky cases to carry your drone – simply fold it up and store it in your backpack. This also leaves a lot more space in your pack to carry other photography equipment, or even just clothes and equipment for a fun weekend trip.

  1. Extreme Power

    GDU was founded on four pillars of design – the first being power. And Byrd is extremely powerful, having the biggest and strongest rotors of any consumer drone providing nearly five pounds of payload. Power is what allows Byrd to lift heavier cameras and is the heart of the Universal Flying Platform –Byrd's feature that provides the ability to swap out different camera and gimbal options, including a DSLR mount, a 10x optical zoom camera, an infrared camera and others. Byrd's power also gives you the ability to fly against strong winds – don’t be grounded by unpredictable winds, let Byrd keep you in the air.

  2. Longer Battery Life

    One of the benefits of being such a powerful drone is the ability to carry a bigger battery – and Byrd has a big one, a full 6700 mAh 4S LiPo battery. This big battery sits in the middle of Byrd providing extra stability and a full 29 minutes of flight time. As with all LiPo batteries, cold temperature conditions, wind speed, payload amount and flight style can vary how much flight time the battery will provide - but this big battery will get you the most time in the air possible.

  3. MORE Powerful

    12 inch propellers give Byrd a competitive edge and better maneuverability while the 24 inch wheel base also guarantees a more stable flight experience. You'll be impressed with what Byrd is capable of when launched in 30 seconds.

Super Tough and Completely Reliable

Byrd is made of military-grade and highly wear-resistant parts, providing for industry leading reliability and impact resistance. Not only does GDU use the best parts available, but GDU also has the industry's best quality control testing center for any consumer level drone. We test the Byrd through extreme climate conditions (heat, cold, rain, dust), weight capability, wind resistance, and so much more. Due to the rigors of testing you can rest assured your Byrd is one of the safest drones in the sky.
