UAVHE is a leading developer of hybrid propulsion systems for commercial UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles). We are committed to developing more environmentally-friendly unmanned aviation solutions that deliver significant savings to our clients not only in fuel costs but also in time, enabling drones to fly further and get more done in a single flight.

Our highly durable and efficient hybrid drone engines are developed in-house, and rigorously put through their paces in our state-of-the-art testing and climate simulation facilities, which are unique within Europe.

The advantages of hybrid engines for drones

UAVHE hybrid UAV engines combine the advantages of both electric and combustion technologies, leveraging the energy density of gasoline and the manoeuvrability of motors.

Our hybrid electric propulsion solutions deliver longer flight times for the same takeoff weight compared to purely electric systems, and consume less fuel than combustion-only aircraft. UAVs equipped with our engines are easy to control, making them accessible to pilots with a wide range of skill levels and experience.

With a durable, low-vibration design, they are highly resistant to collisions and extremes of weather. Other key features include:

  • Advanced autotuning
  • CANbus control
  • Extensive telemetry and self-diagnosis capabilities
  • Electronic torque control and in-cycle torque compensation
