In Russia, developed a UAV with a hybrid power plant

The company "Legion Aero" has developed a new model of a helicopter-type multi-rotor UAV - Hybrix-20, reports Interfax-AVN Post source in the aircraft industry.

In Russia, developed a UAV with a hybrid power plant
The first hybrid (benzo-electric) multicopter HYBRiX.20

For the first time a hybrid benzo-electric power plant is used on the drone, which allows to achieve high performance in flight duration,
said the source.

According to him, the system is based on foreign development, which was localized by Russian specialists.

The interlocutor said that the UAV "is a quadrocopter with four propellers driven by electric motors; the electric power for them is generated by an internal-combustion engine that runs on gasoline."

Maximum take-off weight of the 20 kg. It can fly for up to 4 hours (up to 2 hours with maximum load) at speeds up to 70 km / h.

The unmanned system is designed to solve a wide range of tasks, including monitoring of extended and area objects, cargo delivery, etc. For which the device can be equipped with various payload equipment with a total weight of up to 5 kg, including TV and IR cameras and etc.
told the source.

According to the company "Legion Aero", the drone can be deployed and easily controlled by one person. In the transport position, it is placed in a specialized container carried by most motor vehicles.

Russian expert in the field of unmanned systems Denis Fedutinov, commenting on the new development, noted that "the duration of the flight of unmanned aerial vehicles of this type, as a rule, is only a few tens of minutes, which makes the task of increasing it very relevant." To solve it, “it is possible to use various approaches, including the use of more energy-intensive rechargeable batteries, the use of hydrogen-based fuel cells,” he added.

The proposed approach using a hybrid power plant does not provide such a significant gain in flight duration, as in the case of fuel cells, but provides greater operational flexibility, due to the possibility of fast refueling, as well as the availability of fuel in general,
said the expert.

      I would not want to upset you, but here they are not there either:

      "According to him, the system is based on foreign development, which was localized by Russian specialists."

      The brain here is involved only in order to assemble a product from Chinese components and present it under the guise of something new.

      UAV Altair

      UAV Orion, and heavy UAV, taking into account developments on the UAV Skat, which will be tested in 18 year.
      And these are only well-known developments.

      What did the Caliber not please you? Great long-range strike UAV. laughing Do not confuse the attempts of private desks to "fit" into the budget and the development of a serious aircraft. If they sculpt, then quietly, in serious offices and for a lot of money with a lot of labor.
      One thing is clear, as soon as the required power is more than a couple of horsepower - the batteries and the rest of the exotic are blown away, completely losing the good old engine of "internal combustion" request , even with a generator and replacement of a mechanical transmission with an electric drive. So while oil does not fall in price. Lukoil, live in peace. laughing

        And where was it used at least once? Or in the Arctic, where no one has seen? If there is and it works, so tell me, but there is nothing to show pictures and puff out cheeks

    That's when our concocted drone in 40 tons, then you can discuss. Now it’s a drone for shooting holidays.

      Why so UAV so heavy? There is a planned task for the creation of shock drones of three main classes — up to a ton, up to 5 tons and up to 20 tons. The development of the latter is carried out by KB Sokol, KB Mig and Sukhoi ... they use the achievements of UAV Skat. Most likely, this drone will be similar to the mattress X-47 ...

        That's the trouble. And so heavy, so for more loading of the SP. And the flight range. They have them. We are still lagging behind. Strong. We need combat drones. hi

          The X-47 program was closed, having made only two prototypes. There is the MQ-9 Reaper ... we are developing something similar, but there is little information. We are lagging behind, but we are catching up very quickly. The combat UAV sector is rapidly growing in our country. Take a look at the statistics of the number of UAVs for 2010 and now ...

          But someone thought, are we all so stupid here !? We take into space a drone niiikaaak !!! Here's how they take the arrogant Saxons! And 10000 thousand shock drones for 100500 million evergreens will release us ...! And we have heels of some sort of "carpool" (not an expert) on the front for a couple of miles and what ??? We are not going to attack anyone ... Something like this. drinks

    It’s in vain that they started to criticize, just the UAVs have been doing with us for a long time, for example, here https://kalashnikov.com/brand/zala-aero/products/
    There are also examples of Geoscan.
    Here, the article is written for the first time. So I understand it is the first gasoline electric.

      But Khrushchev was right :) it was necessary to produce rockets, like sausages, large and small, at once you can convert into shock complexes at the request of the day

    It is not more rational to twist the screws directly with the gasoline engine. The weight of the generator, batteries (if any) can be subtracted in this option.
    The model is not promising, we need solar panels, batteries, flight altitude (above the clouds) and electric motors. There are UAV developments that wave their wings, but not for long .... for now.
