After completing testign campaign and delivering the first examples we have
rushed to publish a short documentary. Pteryx is an UAV designed for civilian
use, together with its mission-oriented autopilot. Our focus is in reliable
operation and single button interface. basically you have to put UAV on the
rails, select missions with rotary knobs, hold takeoff button until the
autopilot completes propulsion test, pull the bungee lock. Pteryx can lift
800g compact digital SLR in roll-stabilised head, providing superior quality
photography unachievable by other means: Better flying precision than manned
crafts, inaudible electric propulsion, very few parts to break (only 2 control
surfaces, folding propeller).
Endurance up to 120min, parachute landing,
protected propeller. Possible takeoff from hand and manual piloting. By law,
limited to visual range (some 500m) what yields 1km x 1km map.
