UV-4 UAV by aeroG LLC

Recommended Posts

Here's an interesting new concept, aeroG announces the UV-4 UAV, created as a means to display the potential of a ducted fan rotorcraft powered by multiple electric motors. Delivering an efficient means of lift using smaller and therefore quieter propeller then traditional helicopters. The system made its launch in 2015, since then advances and improvements have been completed to the airframe and powerplant configurations. The function of the ducted system serves as a mean of channeling pressure and vectoring thrust. Giving the UV-4 a unique control system and improved maneuverability. The design of a low speed "T-Tail" houses the function of yaw control with multiple rudders located on its vertical stabilizer, and elevators on its horizontal stabilizer. In addition the rear ducted systems may pivot up to less than thirty degrees forward and backwards to deliver the vector thrust where the aircraft needs it to be. The cargo bay may house up to four thousand pounds of deliverable payload. As its max gross takeoff weight is designed to reach twelve thousand five hundred pounds. The electrical systems on the aircraft use a network of batteries, generators, and its two electrical motors. Proving five hundred horse power each, totaling an amount of one thousand horse power. An electrical charge then powers the mechanization used to spin the propeller to its desired rate per minute
