Japanese company Aerosense has created the fastest multikopter

20
Specialists of the Japanese company Aerosense together with the companies ZMP and Sony are testing a new UAV-multicopter AS-DT01-E, which, according to preliminary estimates, can receive the title of the fastest drone on the planet, reports "Russian newspaper".


Japanese company Aerosense has created the fastest multikopter


On a video posted online, the test model of the drone makes a vertical take-off, and then accelerates to an impressive 170 km / h. This is a real record for such devices, as their standard speed rarely exceeds 100-110 km / h. According to the developers, the duration of the flight of the AS-DT01-E drone-multicopter can reach two hours. At the same time, the device is able to lift air of various loads weighing up to 10 kilograms.

First of all, Aerosense expects to be interested in new private buyers, although its potential seems to be designed for more.

    Impressive. Didn’t you notice that the multicopter has several screws fixed that rotate in several planes?

      Two screws located on one axis, rotation in different directions

      Both screws rotate for takeoff / landing or horizontal flight

        And what, what is he the fastest? the rocket won't hit him ???? And so cool and non-standard solution.

          It’s not profitable to shoot down such a rocket. He is orders of magnitude cheaper than a rocket. If he really lifts a kilogram ten and flies at least kilometers to 5, then he can not only engage in reconnaissance, but also toss up ammunition or supplies on the front line. Of course, you can fight with his electronic warfare. But there is an option against this - to make it autonomous as a torpedo. Type set a point and a route before departure and all. Then he returned, the entries / logs checked. Here you have complete radio silence, here is protection against electronic warfare. And if you lost it, then it costs three kopecks.
          Japs of that and look will print them on 3D printers.
          And we need to think about this. It can do, or maybe not. But it’s definitely worth considering.
          And the little idea with a rotary marching propulsion is very cool. But only if there is a load it is easy to break the centering. But solved.

            don’t mix it. the body is made of polystyrene foam, the electric engine is on batteries. now any airplane UAV can deliver cargo. dump it, for example, with a parachute.

      A very entertaining device, given that it sits down and takes off vertically.

      But noisy is very disgusting, it is necessary to fly up to the enemy quietly without noise and dust.

      The propeller group (2 electric motors with screws of opposite rotation, located on the transverse horizontal axis) rotates 90 degrees. First creates vertical thrust (takeoff), then turns horizontal (flight)hi

        And how does he keep his balance during vertical take-off? Placing the VMG axis on the static center of mass alone is not enough - it will overturn if a gust of wind is present. Is the swashplate really worth it?

        UPD I watched the video again - the first frames show that he has 3 more impellers - in the wings and in the bow. So-so decision.

        The progress is already evident in the fact that the rotational rotation of the screws, if there is one, and besides, bonding allows the radial directional flow vector, since centrifugal flows dominate the screw, make more efficient use of the energy of this air stream. Nothing new has been invented. But!!! It is visible and it is obvious that the Japanese are beginning to understand that there is a need to build algorithms for the implementation of the process for organizing the air flow. And in the light of the fact that modern youth is born and the formation process takes place in an environment of significantly larger flows of information, sooner or later they will come to the conclusion that we are already trying to position ourselves for about five years. Understanding the process of transformation of air on the propeller blades will necessarily lead to the creation of a fundamentally new device in terms of the resulting quality of the effect.

    Exclusively in the topic of UAVs.
    ✅ [Wings of Russia: Russian Teal hovercraft UAV]

    The United Instrument-Making Corporation (OPK, part of Rostec), on the eve of the international air show MAKS-2015, for the first time showed photographs of the Russian Chirok hovercraft reconnaissance and attack drone.



    "Teal" was developed by the Moscow Scientific Research Radio Engineering Institute. According to the calculations of the designers, the required length of the take-off and landing distances will not exceed 100 meters in areas with soft viscous soils, where irregularities and the presence of wetland (water) terrain are allowed, "TASS was told in the corporation.

    The drone is designed to monitor the earth or water surface, as well as the transportation of various target loads. As expected, the military will be able to use the drone for reconnaissance and as a striking apparatus. "Teal" is able to rise to a height of 6 thousand meters, its flight range reaches 2,5 thousand km, and after improvements the drone will be able to transport bombs, missiles and high-precision shells.

    According to the developer, the detection of the Teal UAV in the radar range of the spectrum is difficult, since the body is made of light composite materials. “In addition, the drone’s flight is almost silent due to quiet piston engines with variable pitch propellers,” the defense industry said.

    The new device can be used not only in unmanned, but also in manned mode. In particular, he will be able to transport people to remote areas.

    Good machine. but still raw, it will be finalized if not a masterpiece then the fact that it’s good that it is noisy (two screws on the same axis as the counter-rotation counter) means in the field of military use it is of little use. But for the Ministry of Emergency Situations the most.

    Two screws are necessary in all cases, so that the device does not spin around its axis. Now, if you also put two screws not coaxially but side by side, along the movement (along the wings), then in this case both the lifting force (in the crash mode) and the thrust of the screws in the longitudinal movement mode will almost double. And the profitability and lifting capacity of the device is significantly improved. There are still many opportunities for the modernization of the device.

    What will happen to this kind of aircraft when they begin to use a new type of electric motor, which with a weight of 50 kg provides power for long-term operation of 260 kW (an indicator is the ratio of weight to power = more than 5 kW per 1 kg), which is five times the maximum power of similar models?
    After all, with such an electric motor I’ll create an aircraft with a mass of approx. 2 t.

    look at the small ZALA UAVs, there is a speed of 200 km per hour for a small UAV weighing 20 kg with an internal combustion engine, the usual speed. for smaller ones with an electric motor, speeds up to 165 km per hour
