The Albatross MAX Plane Basic Kit includes all components from the UAV package but with the added functionality of live analog video transmission. This enables the Albatross not only to fly, take off and land autonomously, but it also gives you the ability to view the ground below or have a cockpit perspective in great detail with no delay.
Fully composite airframe, carbon fiber landing gear, carbon fiber shelving, increased use of carbon fiber in structural areas, carbon fiber wing spars, wheels, steerable nose gear and heavy duty hardware for assembly.
The trapezoidal shape of the fuselage minimizes the fuselage to wing interaction, drag and interference. It was designed with a high pressure region in the nose and a low pressure region behind the wing, on top and below the motor mounting area. This acts to create a pressure differential, essentially "pulling" air through the fuselage. The layout allows for smarter cooling, by cooling off lower temperature components towards the front, and higher temperature components in the rear (motor). The cooling exhaust placement was purposely in an area with turbulent airflow, so as to not disturb the otherwise laminar airflow over the rest of the fuselage.
You can use the Albatross for search and rescue missions, inspections of pipelines, photography, filmmaking, thermal imaging, 3D terrain mapping, precision agriculture, surveillance, reconnaissance, FPV, live video links, humanitarian aid, fun and much, much more.
The Albatross is nearly silent, can fly for over 2 hrs, reach speeds of up to 90 MPH and travel for over 100 miles. The modified Albatross kits allow you to fly autonomously, capture stunning HD photos and video, complete aerial surveys, monitor crop health, and wirelessly transmit live video. This is all done with incredible accuracy thanks to an onboard lidar system.
Scorpion Systems Motor
Motor offers unbelievable power and reliability. Albatross kits & RTF models come with a Castle Creations electronic speed controller (esc). More specifically, the Edge 100, with its 100-amperage continuous draw ability and logging capability. Included is the Castle Creations built (Battery Eliminator Circuit) BEC pro which can provide up to 20 amps output to power necessary onboard systems.
Hitec is among the most reliable servo manufacturers around today. APC Propellers are widely available and easily changeable. PX4 PIXHAWK is the brain of the aircraft for computer controlled flight and autonomous operation. This system is on the cutting edge of autonomous flight control & stabilization
Telemetry unit allows you to communicate with your Albatross, alter autonomous flight paths, initiate landings, etc. All is done in real time from your . This unit gives an approximate range of ~1 mile. It is interchangeable with long-range alternatives.
