New Game-Changing UAS Unveiled at Commercial UAV Expo in Las Vegas
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The new year will see drone technology soaring to new levels of performance for commercial and industrial applications, as FlightWave Aerospace Systems launches its new Jupiter tricopter UAS during Commercial UAV Expo Americas, October 28th–30th in Las Vegas.
Picture a tough-as-nails pickup truck, one of the all-wheel-drive workhorses advertised during football games. That's the best metaphor for our Jupiter tricopter: no nonsense, all muscle, made for missions where durability, endurance and precision control are required. Patented tilt-pod technology provides a smooth, level flying experience with control unlike any multi-rotor on the market. The same core engineering that provided precision control for the Edge-130 UAS is now available in a wingless craft — making it ideal for indoor use where precision in tight spaces is crucial. It's an industrial-grade tool to get hard jobs done.
The Jupiter tricopter is FlightWave's answer to a serious problem that has long vexed UAS pilots: traditional quadcopters have to rotate their entire frame in order to move to a new position, dipping and compensating for the dip — over and over again. Tilting while trying to move forward, back, left or right requires more power to prevent losing altitude. It's an inefficient way to fly.
By contrast, Jupiter circumvents this...
