The ElevonX Scorpion is an elastic-powered UAV launcher that can be transported and set up by a single operator. Designed from the ground up with safety, durability and ease of use in mind, the catapult provides redundant safety features and can undertake hundreds of launches with only minimal maintenance. All elastic is enclosed within the launcher tube to eliminate risk to operator or equipment in case of band failure.
The system has been constructed from industrial-grade CNC-machined aluminium and stainless-steel components, with a marine-grade pulley system as well as powder coating for increased protection. The carriage and foldable arms have been designed as standard to support our SkyEye modular UAV system, but we can modify the system to support your unmanned aircraft, even providing a custom-machined adapter to connect the UAV to the carriage.
The Scorpion launcher is provided with a checklist, “remove before launch” tags and a comprehensive user guide. We can also deliver operation and maintenance training to give users all the knowledge they need to confidently operate the system.
