  • Landing gear with braking system

    Reduces the distance required for a runway landing.

  • Automatic takeoff and landing

    Fully automatical remote take-off and landing without human intervention.

  • Automatic flight along the route

    Plan the mission and execute it perfectly.

  • Artboard 21

    ADS-B transponder

    Lets the UAV determine its position and periodically broadcast it, enabling it to be tracked.

  • Anti-jamming

    A secure encrypted connection and the dual-datalink system ensure that UAV won't be jammed.

PD-2 engine module

  • 100 cc engine

    4-stroke gas engine, that runs on regular A95 fuel. Consumables are available world-wide and no special fuel required.

  • Electric generator

    500 w electric generator to power up all equipment on board and charge batteries during the flight.

  • Remote start

    Start engine from a distance with a push of a button, even during the flight the engine can be automatically restarted by flight controller.

  • Integrated sensors

    See status of the engine during the flight, thanks to the RPM, temperature, air temperature, fuel level and other sensors.

  • Muffler

    Specifically designed custom muffler greatly reduces acoustic signature during the flight.

  • Fuel tank
