THE TAILWIND

hybrid gasoline-electric quadrotor

OVERVIEW

Safe

Endurance is important, but safety is paramount. The Tailwind comes with a buffer/boost battery pack that also provides redundancy in case of engine failure.

Mission Capable

The Tailwind is a long endurance drone platform that can fly for up to 5 hours, 10X longer than most battery-powered drones on the market today. With extended range, endurance, and vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capability, it is the ideal tool for commercial drone service providers.

Customizable

It is designed for easy customization, including a modular payload bay and operating system for running custom data acquisition and path planning software.
