Tethered UAVs are used for long-term continuous operation. The driving motor is the core part of power, which must work within the rated power range. However, as far as I know, the empirical value of the lift/power ratio of rotorcraft generates about 5 ~ 10 kilograms of lift per kilowatt of power, but the power-weight ratio of the tethered motor is less than 1 kilowatt/kg. Will such tethered device affect the charging of UAV in the future?

  • The effect of the tethered device on the UAV is from the output voltage, the motor power of the tethered device is not affected.

  • First of all, it is important to understand that tethered motors drive tethered operations. Drones run on motors. It's not the same.

    Have good time

"Wow, Ning2 looks really great on mobile. I had sort of drifted away as my browse-time went more on my phone, so this is great."

"I am sure most will say not again, Pixhawk telemetry. I do need help and all can be reassured that I have spent many hours scouring the net for useful information. I am not new at quadcopter flying, I started in 2012 and have progressed through many…"
