This is the ARF version that stands for almost ready to fly. An ARF model has everything still pre-installed, but is missing the battery, receiver and transmitter for customers who already have their own so don't need to buy them again. The T580 is capable of carrying an extra 200g payload so can carry a larger camera, a higher capacity battery for longer flight times and best of all the Lotus PTZ camera mount The larger size also makes it a little more stable in flight. Inside is the same futuristic technology found in the T380 with advanced GPS positioning and intelligent automatic flight control. The technology found in this radio controlled quadcopter is usually only found is much more expensive models. GPS automatic position hold, altitude hold, automatic take off and landing and even automatic return to home on signal loss are all found on this model. The GPS return to home feature is fantastic. The T580 remembers the coordinates that it took off from. If you fly outside the transmitter range or the signal is lost for any reason such as your transmitter batteries go flat then the drone will automatically return to where it took off and land. When the signal is recovered you have the choice to either take over the flight control again or you can just leave it to let it continue and land. Some other drones will not allow you to take control again once return to home is activated which is something to watch out for. You also have the option to enable return to home at any time even if the signal is not lost by just flipping the return to home switch. The T580G is named after the 580 grams maximum payload it can carry. This is more than enough to carry most mini HD video cameras like the Go Pro or Sony Action Cam for high quality recording. This larger T580 version can also be fitted with the Lotus PTZ camera mount. This smart electronic mount has a built in computer that will keep your camera level even if the drone tilts forwards or backwards.
