According to the developers, the drone is able to be in the air for two hours, carry payloads in 12 kg and operate within a radius of 10 km. It can be installed automatic, grenade launcher, hydraulic destroyer, gas analyzer, thermal imager and other special equipment.

The autopilot is installed on the unmanned helicopter, the GLONASS, GPS system is integrated. In addition, there is a manual correction of the flight path, automatic return to the starting point in case of failure of the radio channel and self-destruct mode, ITAR-TASS reports.

    In general, young people should be given the opportunity to implement their creative and innovative developments. Young guys think differently and are able to solve many problems more creatively and successfully than previous generations. An important point in this work is to notice these youth innovations in time ... to "ignite" the guys for success in the highest achievements

    This is my personal opinion, but the performance characteristics are weak for army operations .. it may be quite suitable for some military events, but it will be more useful to special units when conducting sweeps and other operations within a radius of no more than 5-7 km ...

    TTX is rather weak for army operations ..

    ... capable of being in the air for two hours, carrying payload in 12 kg and operating in a radius of 10 km. An automatic machine, a grenade launcher, a hydraulic breaker, a gas analyzer, a thermal imager and other special equipment can be installed on it ...

    It seems decent characteristics. This will find its niche in the army.

    Good luck, drone. Good luck, guys from MAI.

    Such a device would probably suit border guards - launching from an outpost, flying around a squad zone, communication through an operator at an outpost. There would be a thing!

    I have to agree. In general, all our developments in this area look somewhat amateurish for now. Apparently they invest a little, but you still need to do it (there's no getting around here).
