BAE and Malloy Aeronautics jointly develop electric heavy-duty VTOL drone

BAE Systems and Malloy Aeronautics announced plans to jointly develop an all-electric heavy-duty vertical take-off and landing UAV system to provide military, security and civilian customers with cost-effective and sustainable rapid response capabilities. At present, the two parties are exploring cooperation opportunities to conduct feasibility studies on the capabilities, design, manufacturing and marketing of this UAV system.

This all-electric UAV system has a maximum design speed of 140 kilometers per hour, a range of 30 kilometers, and can carry a 300 kg payload. It is mainly used for ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore transportation to support military, security operations and logistical support. . The UAV system is a zero-carbon emission system that can assist in the execution of military operations that need to carry heavy objects, protect military personnel from dangerous situations, prevent them from being harmed, and reduce the impact on the environment.

FlyDragon FD-1660 electric heavy duty VTOL drone

FD-1660 long endurance drone

FlyDragon FD1660  is a electric long flight time and heavy duty VTOL drone,  six axis carbon fiber drone , FlyDragon FD1660 is made of carbon fiber material which features light weight and high strength, the canopy of FD1660 is made of glass fiber so that the GPS signal won’t be blocked. The closed fuselage structure can protect FD1660 from the rain and dust, and also protect other load equipments like flight control and battery.
FD1660 can be applied in many fields like aerial photography, emergency rescue, reconnaissance mission, power line inspection, remote sensing survey and mapping etc.
