Watts Innovations PRISM

Versatility Takes Flight

The most versatile drone on the planet. Watts has designed the PRISM to be the most versatile aircraft possible. They understand the challenges that professional drone operators face on a daily basis, so they created this aircraft with the pilots in mind.

Quad / X8 – PRISM can easily be configured as a Quadcopter or X8 Coaxial

PRISM can fly as a quadcopter or X8 Coaxial, with large motors or small. Each arm is user serviceable and can literally be removed with two bolts. With Watts' patent-pending PropulsionID technology, the drone is smart enough to detect and automatically configure the autopilot for flight no matter what kind of propulsion system is installed.
