The Dragonfly helicopters are powered by two wing tip rockets fueled by Hydrogen peroxide, a 100% carbon free renewable source. The exhaust consist of simply water vapors and oxygen. Our current rockets weigh only 1.8 lbs and produce a thrust equivalent to 102 horsepower. Our patented rockets are the most powerful ever built to its weight and size
Our Dragonfly helicopters have no traditional combustion engines, hence, no moving parts. traditional helicopters are subject to frequent expensive major engines overhauls. The Dragonfly is completely free of vibrations and require zero engine maintenance.
The simplicity of the design in conjunction with ultra-low service costs makes the Dragonfly helicopters the most cost efficient lifting platforms on the market. hydrogen Peroxide is cheaper than traditional fossil fuel, and the Dragonfly's fuel Zero emissions is a glimpse into the Future.
The wing tip mounted rockets are extremely durable and unaffected by debris ingestion, heavy rain, or other extreme weather conditions. The lack of torque produced by our Dragonfly helicopters omits the need for a counteracting tail rotor, the most common failure on conventional helicopters. Our tests have shown that the Dragonfly, in the event of a total loss of performance has a 400% greater autorotation ability than its competition.
The ground noise from the Dragonfly is only 72dB. As a comparison, a typical hair dryer in 85dB!
Our helicopters does not carry the heavy weight of traditional engines, giving the dragonfly and unmatched performance advantage. depending on the model, they can carry a payload of 800 - 1,200 lbs, with a range of 290 - 740 miles at speeds of 145 - 185 mph, outperforming any competition on the market today by a wide margin.
The Dragonfly helicopters can be ready to power up and take off in just 14 seconds. Its propulsion technology makes it very "stealthy" with no heat signature, and exceptionally low noise.
Avimech has an in house capability to scale our proprietary rockets from 102 horsepower up to 1,600 horsepower enabeling a significant scalability to the range, speed, and payload capabilities
