In Russia, developed drone horizontal and vertical takeoff

24
Specialists of the Russian manufacturer of electronic equipment "Rikor" created an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), which has unique flight characteristics for its class, thanks to a hybrid layout of engines with variable thrust vectoring.




“UAV“ Rikor ”can take off and land both vertically and horizontally, which is not typical for most devices of this class. The flight can take place both as in an ordinary aircraft (horizontally), and in the hang mode (as a quadcopter). At the same time, take-off devices are not required for take-off, ”reports the Rikor press service. ROSNAUKA.

Another feature of the new Russian drone is the ability to quickly change the flight configuration using additional aerodynamic elements and suspensions in order to optimize the vehicle for the specific task.

“As part of the course on import substitution, the development and production of unmanned aerial vehicles in Russia are now a priority area of ​​scientific and technological activity. We are currently considering options for optimizing the cost of a drone to reach the maximum number of potential customers, ”said Boris Ivanov, vice president of Rikor.

The wing span of the Rikor UAV is 2.8 meters, length is 1.4 meters, flight weight is 11 kg. The horizontal flight speed of the vehicle reaches 100 km / h. It can be airborne for up to 150 minutes. The device is equipped with five brushless electric motors: four of them work in the hang mode, vertical take-off and landing, while the fifth take-off works with the horizontal take-off.

The UAV was created taking into account the requirements of federal agencies, logistics companies and enterprises of the oil and gas sector.

      We’re trying to try it, but it’s a pity we have only tactical UAVs so far, it’s time to already develop the drums Alya Skat from dry.

        Ala skat from dry.

        Actually, the SKAT layout was rolled out by the MiG design bureau

          Damn "ala" "similar" and after the ramp was closed, the developments on it were transferred to Sukhoi.

        .
        In Russia, this is being done and there are not only design developments, for example:
        From the article "THE ARMY OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION WILL RECEIVE DOMESTIC SHOCK UAVS"
        The St. Petersburg company Transas and the Kazan experimental design bureau Sokol will begin designing large shock UAVs by the end of the year, which in their characteristics should not be inferior to their American and Israeli counterparts. In total, it is planned to spend three billion rubles on the implementation of the program, and to begin testing the devices in 2015. The development will be led by the creator of the “Bee” drone, which has proven itself in operations in the North Caucasus, and the Yak-130 combat trainer.
        And as
        Russian submarine drone alarms Pentagon
        The U.S. Department of Defense (Pentagon) is concerned about Russia's development of an underwater drone that could carry tens of megatons of warheads.

        New Avius-1 drone weighing up to two tons is being created in Russia
        The Russian group of companies RTI is developing a new military heavy unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) Avius-1, which can be used in both reconnaissance and strike versions, said Deputy General Director of RTI Igor Bevzyuk.

        in order to develop udany, you need to get your hand on tactical platforms, and their applications. It is strange that you suggest immediately starting to run, before you first learn to walk.
        Before Ricor was born, in 2010 Panther was born, as well as a mini Panther and Jihost.
        That's how it flies.

    This is good, but where are the engines, cameras, control systems, why aren’t they doing it? Filling the UAV is one of the parameters by which its capabilities, models and sketches are evaluated, our talents will be tuned a lot, and then what?

      I mean not involved? Or do you think that UAVs without an engine, surveillance, control and automation systems, etc. can be called UAVs?

    In the place of making shock and strategic drones that would have fun over the Arctic for days, they develop some absurdities: for some reason, then an air cushion, then a vertical take-off. What for? Complicate the design, superfluous and not small all that could be used by electronic and optical equipment. This is a military apparatus, not a toy from a supermarket.

      well, you are not shy about speaking absurdities ...
      In your understanding, all conventional wars are won only by tank wedges (there is no place for BMPs, self-propelled artillery systems, flamethrower systems, RSZOs, reconnaissance and support vehicles)?
      The parallel may be rough, but in the UAV everything is the same. Each system performs its task.

    Apparently, the leadership woke up from hibernation and untied the hands of our design bureau. I am sure that very soon we will see a whole bunch of devices for various purposes and masses. I won’t be surprised that fighters and bombers of both light and heavy classes will appear, the thought of our scientists is unlimited.

    Now we need not advertising, but mass implementation. Only the experience of mass operation will show what an UAV is needed and what is redundant. Well, and what is missing. UAVs must fly in hundreds. It is in the interests of all departments and to recruit statistics.
    And now only one chatter is heard.

    That's right, do not poke your fingers into the outlet. An adult, they lived to see gray hair, but you don’t understand that there is a difference between personal attitude, diplomacy and geopolitics.

    Please tell me what equipment will be installed on this device, domestic flight controller? What is the battery capacity? Searched on the Internet, did not find the characteristics !! And the main cost !!!
