The Dragonfly DFU (Drone) is a Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) platform entirely controlled by an Auto Pilot remotely . It's a highly stable unit, built to military specifications with unparalleled performance. The Empty weight is only 220 lbs, and its capable of lifting a payload of 800 lbs, all while being able to go from "dark cockpit" to airborne within 30 seconds.
Powered with renewable Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2), which can me made locally, and the lack of any moving engine parts makes the operating, and maintenance costs ultra low compared to any other heavy lifting drones on the market.
The DFU Dragonfly is very quiet with only 72dB ground noise. As a comparison, a standard electric shaver emits 85 dB. This fact, in conjunction with the lack of a radar heat signature makes the DFU a rather "stealthy" aircraft.
Due to it's relatively slow rotor speed the Dragonfly DFU is less affected by ground effect making it very easy to hover. The counteracting rockets eradicates any torque produced by traditional engine designs making he DFU amazingly stable, and easy to maneuver even in windy conditions.
With no need for engine, or turbine intakes the DFU is extremely reliable to operate, even during the most extreme weather conditions such as sandstorms, or during heavy precipitations etc.
The DFU is an attractive platform for acquiring very-high resolution imagery, Border patrol surveillance, Emergency Medical Support (EMS), Search and Rescue (SAR missions), Crop Spraying and/or heavy deliveries
