The Velos V3 is the next-generation version of the versatile Velos unmanned helicopter platform, featuring enhancements in stability, reliability and payload capacity, as well as new robust carbon fiber skid pads. The IP65-rated helicopter UAV can withstand high levels of rain, snow, wind and other extreme weather conditions.
The unmanned helicopter has been built with a highly innovative fully redundant twin-engine design, allowing it to safely land and protect its payload even in the event of motor or servo failure, broken belt or gear, burnt-out ESC or main battery failure.
The Velos V3 provides fully automatic navigation and waypoint following as well as obstacle avoidance and emergency auto-landing, and has been extensively tested with the Here2 and Here3 RTK GNSS systems. Communications options include radio systems such as the Silvus StreamCaster, as well as 4GLTE/5G cellular. Custom firmware provides compatibility with leading ground control software including Mission Planner, QGroundControl, UgCS and more.
The aircraft has a payload capacity of up to 12kg, and features a unique payload rail that provides 28 different locations for mounting a variety of different off-the-shelf sensors and equipment, including visible and thermal cameras and LiDAR scanners.
