Drone Volt Heliplane v2

The French manufacturer of professional civil drones released a new version of its HELIPLANE v.2 drone this week.

Drone Volt claims the new Heliplane can reach speeds of 72km/h with a flight time of 60-minutes carried by four vertical motors and one horizontal motor.

The Heliplane v2 has a 2.3m or 2.7m wingspan and is 1.3m in length with a Kevlar/fiberglass frame construction.

The Heliplane comes in three versions with a range of factory fitted sensors; "Security" has a dual camera with 20x optical zoom, "Lidar" as the name suggests has a lidar sensor fitted for generating high resolution three-dimensional maps while the "Photogrammetry" version uses RTK GPS positioning with high precision RGB camera.

Total aircraft weight is 6.8-8.5kg with a maximum payload of 1.6kg.

Standard video range transmission is 500m but a 10km option is available.

CEO and chairman of Drone Volt, Olivier Gualdoni, said: "This new HELIPLANE v.2 drone should enable us to rapidly generate new sales, notably in the strategic areas of surveillance and inspection."
