DA70 GenPod – UAV Engine

Easily field-swappable engine for UAVs

HFE DA70 GenPod - UAV EngineThe DA70 GenPod is an easily field-swappable UAV engine that dramatically reduces operational downtime. The entire system, including electronics, fuel pumping system, EFI, ignition, and motor mount isolation, can be removed by simply flipping two clips, saving significant time and costs during scheduled maintenance.

The DA70 GenPod can be integrated into new UAV designs with a minimum of effort, requiring only a power supply, fuel tank connection and throttle position signal. The built-in starter requires only a 5V signal, providing up to 500 W of electrical power for the avionics system and featuring integrated power management.

All GenPod engines include a silent muffler set that reduces acoustic signature and acoustic non-detectability altitude. The unit is available in pusher or tractor configuration, and different cowling options are available upon request.

EFI Engines for UAVs

Highly efficient, UAV fuel injected engines

HFE DA35 UAV engineThe DA series of UAV engines features state-of-the-art electronic fuel injection technology for high-efficiency operation, and a special magnet configuration in the propeller hub for easy starting. The built-in engine control module (ECM) can be powered by a single 3-cell Lipo battery of capacity 1500mah or greater, with a total power draw of only 12 watts (1 amp) at full throttle.

All DA engines for UAVs have been tested from sea level to 10,000 ft altitude, and at temperatures ranging from 10°F to 120°F
