Range: 20 Km
Endurance: 2 Hr
Payload: 2 Kg
Max. Takeoff Weight: 5 Kg
Cruise Velocity: 20 m/s
Cruise Altitude: 300 m
Wing Span: 2.11 m

WHAT IS NEW
With a TOTALLY HOME MADE UAV capable of carrying 2 Kg payload to 20 Km range, Volare Dominus characterized by those unique features.

STABILITY AUGMENTATION SYSTEM
UAV can balance itself without any manned orders by measuring the UAV`s angles by IMU as feedback and send it to ARDUINO board to control servo motors of the control surfaces.

LIVE STREAMING CAMERA
Using Raspberry Pi, you can watch the FPV camera on the internet browser through internet.

WINGS
Semi elliptic wing end configuration is used to decrease DRAG and increase LIFT while keeping wing span and area constant by decreasing tip vortices.

WINGS AGAIN !
For minimum fuel consumption at cruise, the wing is quite big enough to carry the UAV with 10% only of engine power.

TAIL
With a twin vertical tail, the UAV is capable to take off & easily controlled under extreme conditions of cross wind.
