Product Overview

YANGDA Sky Whale Mini full electric VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) fixed-wing drone, the unique design of its type in the world, brings the cutting-edge technology innovation in the UAV industry. Aerodynamic design, 3 hours long endurance, weatherproof structure, and reliable avionics system, making it an ideal UAV platform for ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) and mapping applications. 


Fast deploy
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 Mini VTOL plane can be set up in 3 minutes by a single man.


Quick-release cargo bay
This design will give you more flexibility to switch among different payloads, like a surveillance camera, LiDAR, or mapping camera.


Due to its anti-water design on the fuselage and air speedometer, the Sky Whale Mini 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. Lean more. 


Built-in antenna
A video link antenna will be integrated inside the back landing gear, making the fuselage more compact and straightforward. Also, a removable landing gear design will make maintenance much more accessible.


No piloting skills needed
The LAUNCH ground control software that Sky Whale Mini 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 Mini can be easily identified in the air with onboard navigation lights, especially at night. Also, the navigation lights can be turned on/off manually on the LAUNCH drone ground control software.



Built-in TOF landing assistance
The landing is gentle and safe with one 8m range radar detection device.


Onboard ADS-B
Equipped with ADS-B, Sky Whale Mini's GPS coordinate will be displayed on the air traffic control system.


Compass calibration-free (differential GPS)
The pilot does not need to do compass calibration on the Sky Whale Mini 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.


Follow moving target (optional)
The surveillance VTOL can follow and inspect a static or moving target of interest during a routine patrol route when carrying a Storm Eye-30IE-M drone zoom camera. Also, the target coordinates can be copied and shared with the command center. Once the inspection is completed, the VTOL drone can return to the patrol route.


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.



Unlimited video & data range (optional)
Sky Whale Mini 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 Mini VTOL can be used in mapping, search, rescue, and surveillance applications.
