3 metre UAV

We have just finished another UAV for Cybertechnologies PtyLtd. With a 3 meter wingspan and weighing approx 20kg its the largest one we've completed to date. This plane features retracting undercarriage, removable wings, tailcone and nose cone for transport and is powered by a small jet turbine.

The inbuilt autopilot means this plane can manage take-offs, flightpaths and landings back on the runway without any human assistance.

Composite Components, designed the laminate schedule, manufactured the components, handled the sub-assembly and then went back to edit the CAD model to reflect any changes arising from the build.

The plane was completed in 2 and a half weeks.
