Wingcopter, a German manufacturer of the fully autonomous Wingcopter tiltrotor VTOL and finalist in the 2017 Drones for Good competition, have partnered with UAVenture to deliver a complete UAS for professional applications with their commercial flight control platform, AirRails.
The Wingcopter is an universal all electric composite tiltrotor aircraft capable of carrying and operating a wide range of payloads. It’s ideal use-cases include search and rescue, monitoring, inspection, survey, mapping and delivery operations. Bundled together with the tablet based AirRails ground control station the Wingcopter is easy to use for operators and can be seamlessly integrated into any workflow.
The Wingcopter partnership with UAVenture has demonstrated how a specialist in developing and producing state-of-the-art VTOLs such as the Wingcopter Tiltrotor can quickly integrate the AirRails flight control platform for a market ready solution in only a few weeks. The AirRails platform goes beyond pure flight control and management but all integrates payloads and payload control, flight data management and 3rd party connectivity.
The result of our combined efforts can be seen at the Drones for Good competition in Dubai this year where Wingcopter completed successfully a complex search and rescue demonstration with 3 Wingcopters plus a unique VTOL acrobatic demonstration.
