The PD-1 fixed-wing drone has been upgraded to a completely new level! We are proud to introduce a VTOL module that converts any PD-1 drone to vertical take-off and landing aircraft!
The VTOL module can be installed on PD-1 drone right in the field. This upgrade does not require any special modifications and you will not need to send UAV back to the factory. Our truly modular design opens new possibilities and allows to add and remove system modules on-the-go.
PD-1 with VTOL module has wing-span of 5 meters and can stay in the air same 10 hours with 10 kg payload onboard. Take-off and landing processes are controlled by autopilot and done in fully automatic mode.
PD-1 VTOL is fully compatible with all our EO/IR payloads and supports a wide range of third-party equipment, such as SAR, LIDAR, radio repeaters and much more.
On the opposite side, the VTOL module can be easily removed from the drone and you can operate the same airframe as a standard fixed-wing drone with runway take-off and landing or with pneumatic catapult launcher and parachute recovery.
Our philosophy is to deliver most flexible UAV solution on the market that can fulfil requirements for any mission!
