YANGDA Sky Whale Max hybrid (battery and petrol) fixed-wing VTOL drone is specially designed for missions that conventional electric VTOL drones can't do: 15kg heavy payload delivery and 10 hours of ultra-long endurance aviation. Given its stable structure and high reliability, it is an excellent UAV platform for emergency cargo delivery, long-distance coast patrol, oil pipeline inspection, border monitoring, etc.
10 hours ultra-long endurance
Sky Whale Max gasoline hybrid VTOL can fly for 10 hours with a 2kg payload.
With the streamlined aerodynamic structure design, 50kg max take-off weight (MTOW), large wing area, and small wing loading,
the hybrid VTOL drone can carry a 15kg payload for 4 hours.
Separate camera bin
Sky Whale Max hybrid UAV comes with a separate bin for gimbal camera installation, allowing it to search for targets through an onboard camera when carrying a heavy payload.
Stable and mighty power
The 116cc EFI hybrid engine has two cylinders with independent ignition and independent fuel feeding. Also, it has an onboard auto starter and alternator, enabling it to output continuous and stable power for the VTOL.
Due to its anti-water design on the fuselage, the Sky Whale Max gas 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.
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.
No piloting skills needed
The LAUNCH ground control software that Sky Whale Max hybrid 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 Max 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.
Compass calibration-free (differential GPS)
The pilot does not need to do compass calibration on the Sky Whale Max 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.
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.
