YANGDA Sky Whale heavy-lift electric VTOL drone is specially developed for LiDAR mapping, long-distance cargo delivery & transport and security & surveillance. It comes with four lift motors and one fixed-wing motor, which will allow the fixed-wing VTOL to ascend like a quadcopter. Once in the air, the aircraft transitions to horizontal flight as a push-prop fixed-wing.
Heavy-lift and long-endurance
Sky Whale VTOL drone can fly 3.5 hours with 2kg payload, 2 hours with 6kg payload and 90 minutes with 10kg payload.
The fixed-wing UAV is adapting the most advanced quick-detach technology on both airframe and cable connector, making assembly and disassembly becomes super easy. In this case, the Sky Whale VTOL plane can be set up in 3 minutes by a single man. Learn more.
Quick-release cargo bay
This design will give you more flexibility to switch among different payloads, like a surveillance camera, LiDAR, or medical supplies.
Due to its anti-water design on the fuselage and air speedometer, the Sky Whale VTOL drone is weatherproof and can reach an IP55 rating. In this case, the waterproof VTOL aircraft can carry out urgent missions on rainy days, like search and rescue.
No piloting skills needed
The LAUNCH ground control software that Sky Whale VTOL drone uses is developed for beginners, so a pilot without any flight experience can fly the drone well. Click HERE to learn more.
Working day and night
Sky Whale can be easily identified in the air with onboard aviation lights, especially at night.
Built-in TOF landing assistance
The landing is gentle and safe with one 8m range radar detection device.
Equipped with ADS-B, Sky Whale's GPS coordinate will be displayed on the air traffic control system.
Battery hot swapping
With one extra built-in battery for autopilot, the drone batteries can be replaced without powering off the system, which is very useful for multiple flights at one time.
Compass calibration-free (differential GPS)
The pilot does not need to do compass calibration on the Sky Whale VTOL UAV, saving lots of time in emergency tasks. Furthermore, the fixed-wing VTOL won't get affected by surrounding electromagnetic interference (EMI) anymore since the compass is replaced by DGPS, significantly improving the VTOL flight stability in the air.
Remote landing and delivery (optional)
One-key to take off, no need for a skilled operator. Multiple landing points, suitable for cargo delivery application.
VTOL Parachute (optional)
Saver-40VT parachute has been developed to protect this precious VTOL drone during an unexpected accident in the air.
Follow Me feature (optional)
Sometimes the flight platform, like a boat or a vehicle, has to move around after the drone takes off to carry out a mission. Then, in this case, the drone should have the ability to follow the moving flight platform and land when the task is over. This feature is available on YANGDA VTOL drones now, please click HERE to watch the demo video.
Unlimited video & data range (optional)
Sky Whale aircraft provides a 4G / LTE video transmitter for unlimited video & data transmission.
Versatile airborne platform
Thanks to its excellent stability and powerful payload-lift capability, Sky Whale VTOL can be used in mapping, search, rescue, and surveillance applications.
