American designers have created an unmanned wing transformer
Experts from the University of Minnesota have created a new UAV SUAV: Q, which represents the aerodynamic wing. Wing already tested in the case and report that the first tests were successful. UAV is able to vertically take off and land like a helicopter.
The unit consists of four parts, which allow drone develop into a kind of box. After takeoff device spreads all four sections, turning into a floating above the wing surface. It can fly at an altitude of 120 meters, the wing sweep SUAV: Q - two meters, and weight of the device is about four kilograms.
Because of their design and solar panels, this wing may be long in the air, without too much spending power, and yet he does not need a runway, so the use of the development of the University of Minnesota engineers can be including in remote areas . Engineers report that their drone can be useful to the fire, police, or could prove useful for agriculture.
