Automatic flight plan of 1.5 km with payload of 4.5 kg!
The objectives of these tests are:
ü Check how the drone manage the Flight Plan
ü Check the setting of the PID of the drone and it new remote control
ü Check the autonomy with a dummy radar (3,2 kg) and the antenna (1,3kg with the installation of a spacer) for a total weight of about 4,5 kg.
FlyRadar has passed the first fly tests!!!
It is a radar with double mode: a SAR and penetrating radar like the one flying around Mars (MARSIS and SHARAD).
The testing has demonstrated that a light electric drone can carry on a complex radar with a large antenna.
The bet was that a small drone powered by electric motors could carry the weight of the radar, batteries and an antenna bigger than it. Now, we can go ahead with the full integration.
