D7: fixed-wing UAV with up to 30h endurance and 200km/h top speed
D7 is high-endurance fixed-wing drone system with internal combustion engine, flight time up to 30h and top speed up to 200km/h. If the D5 is our workhorse then the D7 is our working ox: 40kg of its 60kg MTOW are for fuel and payload.
The D7 is designed as a modular and versatile airframe that fits different propulsion and wingspan options. For example, a maximum speed of 200km/h and 10h endurance can be achieved with the 157ccm 2-stroke gasoline engine and 5.18m wingspan.
With the 4-stroke version of the same engine the endurance can be doubled. However, this requires greater wingspan of 6.81m that ultimately reduces the maximum speed. In other words, the D7 flight characteristics are configured according to the client’s application and requirements.
Reliability and Safety
Design & Technology
The D7 features spacious payload bay (500mm x 400mm x 310mm) with big canopy for easy payload integration and maintenance.
Removing the engine enclosure gives full access to the motor. The opening under the removable central wing section allows easy access to the fuel, ignition and exhaust subsystems.
The D7 fuel tanks are configurable to meet the requirements of the application. They can be installed in the fuselage under the central wing section and/or inside the wings.
