UAV Factory introduced the Penguin C Mk2 VTOL vertical take-off and landing drone. Due to the fact that he removes the propellers in horizontal flight, his flight time increases by 20%.
The drone is equipped with four propellers that automatically retract during horizontal flight. This allows the drone to spend more time in the air – it can spend more than 14 hours in the air. The Penguin C Mk2 VTOL weighs 32 kg and has a payload of 4.5 kg. Its beams are made of composite material.
Replacing the battery is quick and easy, the entire process takes less than 2 minutes, minimizing delays between flights. The Penguin C Mk2 vertical takeoff and landing UAV remains one of the smallest in its class in terms of logistics. The complete system consists of three aircraft, three high-performance EO/IR Epsilon gimbals, one GCS, and a MIMO tracking antenna. The entire system can be transported in five Pelican crates and is quick and easy to assemble.
The drone with retractable propellers has already completed more than 600 take-offs and landings, and in different weather conditions. It can fly in the air with a wind speed of 15 m / s and fly at temperatures from -40°C to +50°C.
