The Airborne VANGUARD is ‘next best thing’ in high endurance multi-rotor aircraft systems, based on the reliable Airborne SENTINEL+. The Airborne VANGUARD is a modular unmanned aircraft system (UAS) offering multi-payload support whilst combining reliable technology with tried-and-tested engineering. This enables the Airborne VANGUARDsystem to meet a wide variety of applications and the design needs of the user.
The VANGUARD supports detachable arms for simple and compact storage in a rugged Aluminium Carry Case, allowing the drone to become fully deployed and stored in under a minute. In addition, the VANGUARD supports a straightforward on-the-field arm replacement capability without requiring repair assistance.
The platform is provided with a 50V (12s) Power Pack allowing the system to achieve an impressive flight time of 90 minutes. The frame is designed to support X4 and X8 configurations with tri-blade propellers. The flight efficiency of this system comes from the large prop and low KV motors that provide a steady flight in moderate winds and heavy lifting.
