    where are the optics?

    also, doesn't seem as maneuverable as a quadcopter; presumably still handy for dunking on abandoned/damaged/disabled vehicles, but less so for clearing trenches, woodland, precision stuff.

    also, obligatory - sauce?

        That smol boom over the grenade houses the camera. Think the idea behind them is that they are faster and in case of loss of signal they will still be quite aerodynamic so they hit the target.

        ty i am as blind as i am stupid

        i look forward to seeing them in action. speed makes sense, and i would guess fixed wing will be more power efficient, thus longer range / greater loitering time.

            Nice. There are some advantages to the planes. They are faster, have much longer ranges than heli drones, and more easily correctable movement. I would expect them to be cheaper than FPV drones because they only use one engine but that body looks expensive as hell.

            I wonder, is there any reason they can't make them even cheaper by unclamping the RPG like a payload instead of a suicide warhead and then flying the drone back to base? Or do RPGs not want to explode if they aren't driven with enough force?

                You would be surprised. It looks like a lot more material than the skeletonized FPV drones have. Probably also has to house a bunch of sensors and shit inside. It should be cheaper than an FPV drone but I suspect it isn't based on the look of it

                can't say about the wings, but the body is obviously made from a PVC pipe. The wings are pressed plastic, so the price there would depend on the quantity, but any facotry that makes plastic water bottles can easlity make a mold for those as well. Thebig bucks are in the servos for the control surfaces and the antena.

                3d printing one of those rudders costs about a buck if you are buying pla+ from the most expensive filament manufacturers, the time required to assemble a rudder out of plywood/carboard would be a lot more than that. you just need 20 speedy printers for cheap (kobra 2 / voron) and you can manufacture 50 drones every day for about 10 bucks for the frame, 13 bucks for the ELRS receiver, 10 bucks for the 40A ESC, 15 bucks for the motor and 5 bucks for the other parts.

                These days it's literally faster to just use a shit load of 3D printers and a couple guys monitoring/assembling the final prints and product. Plywood would have to have guys that cut the basic wing shape and then do extensive finishing on the plywood to get the final airfoil shape and takes longer.

                We've all seen the RPG-FPV-drones destroy tanks. But I'm wondering does the slower drone speed affect the rockets penetratrion ability against armor. It propably helps if it's coming from the sky and hitting the top of a turret but lot of the videos show the angle being relatively low. Fist thing that came to mind seeing these "plane"-types that they might be a little faster or be able to launch the rpg on the air from like 5m away for better benetration :DDD

              My guess is that the RPG warhead may not reliably detonate if they just drop it, part of the reason for the fixed-wing design might be that they need to ram it into the target at full speed for it to work. That aside though I don't think it'd be flyable without the warhead, it's designed around having that weight up front and once it was gone the drone would just pitch up uncontrollably and stall out of the sky.

              >unclamping the RPG like a payload
              When dropped instead of launched, RPG warheads are unlikely to be too aerodynamic, so you'd have to add fins to their tail, most likely ones that are larger in width than the front piece. Also when carried as a payload, they add drag and make the plane itself less aerodynamic, less battery efficient and shorten its range and speed. Dropping/dive-dropping is also less accurate than flying into.

      Fixed wing design over quadcopter design to me implies that the engineers favored longer range engagements. Looks like there's only one motor to push the drone and using wings to generate lift instead of rotors helps reduce battery usage along with providing stability to keep gliding to the target area if connection with the operator is jammed.

          Ukies use signal repeaters hidden closer to the front lines so the drones can reach the targets. After that it’s a matter of waiting in the sky for the right target so the single motor and winged design lets it loiter much longer than a quadrotor drone

          The drones are redlining the motors with rpg warheads already, they have like 5 mins of flight time, max. The batteries ARE the limiting factor, the only reason they are used is the price and availability of the entire system. If you had to put an ICE on every drone you could not produce enough to make a difference to the point it would not be worth the effort in the first place.

          I wonder if some FPVs are using exotic metal-air batteries, since they dont really care about being recharged. Then again their availability is fairly limited compared to li-pos you can get from aliexpress

            about that - those can be manufactured from base materials rather cheaply
            I am not sure whether they could provide enough power, but a mix of zink powder and iron wool in KOH solution (added just before usage) with a cloth separator can be made by any schoolgirl

            no discharge until electrolyte is added, no recharge is needed since base materials are so available and cheap, but again I don't know whether these can provide enough power - I ran small motors with my diy batteries, but I am not sure what size/design of an air battery has to be used to power something like in OP picture

                Maybe the common ones are just optimized for low-current operation, but they generally don't deliver even a third of their stated mAh if you drain them in an hour or so.

      this design is based on the Mini Talon FPV plane which has been around for years now. That's probably fiberglass on the wing and fuselage.

        It could be simple as hot-wire cut foam with plastic foil ironed on for strength. That would remove the need for molds.

        and the mini is just a scaled down version of the original Talon
        which itself is based on the Lockheed Martin Desert Hawk

        about that - those can be manufactured from base materials rather cheaply
        I am not sure whether they could provide enough power, but a mix of zink powder and iron wool in KOH solution (added just before usage) with a cloth separator can be made by any schoolgirl

        no discharge until electrolyte is added, no recharge is needed since base materials are so available and cheap, but again I don't know whether these can provide enough power - I ran small motors with my diy batteries, but I am not sure what size/design of an air battery has to be used to power something like in OP picture

        At the same time the question arises - why not use cheap disposable alcaline batteries?

        Maybe the common ones are just optimized for low-current operation, but they generally don't deliver even a third of their stated mAh if you drain them in an hour or so.

        it's a combination of energy density to ampere draw that only lithium chemistry can provide
        those LiPo packs on drones have absurd C ratings (current supplied in relation to total capacity without much of a voltage drop)
        the big quads draw 70A continuously so there's no real alternative

    What I like a lot about winged drones is if they get hijacked by electronic warfare on approach, they aren't able to deviate from their final course at all

  12. 4 weeks ago
    Anonymous

    the most important advantages are:

    1. Faster
    2. Potentially cheaper (1 motor required as opposed to 4) with less reliance on the supply chain
    3. More reliable for the reason above and because it's able to continue to fly into the target in the terminal phase even if jammed
    4. Loitering

    but the actual major reason I think the drone was built is:

    5. Vastly greater energy efficiency and range than a quadcopter. this means that Ukrainian drone teams can operate further behind the lines to avoid enemy drones and artillery. It also means that it can hit point targets of importance like stationary SHORAD vehicles and artillery. Most FPV drones are used right at the front line.

      What about resilience? Quadcoprers are very vulnerable in the sense that damaging a rotor will take them out. While these ones only have 1 propeller, it is in the back and much harder to hit, and even if it is, the drone still has a chance to glide to the target, if it's not too far.

      Definitely a response to things like adiivka (sp?) Where arty was destroying shit as early as possible. Frick maybe fpv drones like this would give the range of arty a run for its money, particularly if a baba yaga is extending signal range.

        I'd take it one step further and design the plane drones with detachable battery packs it drops when depleted to cut weight, I'd bet you could make them have a far longer range than expected.

    That's extremely well designed. They had to pull Americans in. The entire body. Looks like low flying ultra long distance night flyer style. It's drag is incredibly low with it's tail and wings like that. The control surfaces are set up for low flying btw. It looks easy to assemble, stealth or near it cheap, huge payload for size

        Even the basic PG-7 HEAT warhead (~260 mm RHA penetration?) is probably massive overkill if they hit a spot like the back of the turret.
        There is a tandem charge variant, but it's much larger, almost twice as heavy and would certainly need a more expensive drone to carry it. Might not be worth it if the regular warheads already have a decent success rate.

      They really should look into some kind of modernization setup of putting a tiny precursor charge onto existing PG-7V and PG-7VL cones given the PG-7VR is unreliable. It'd make strikes to the ERA covered sides of the hull just as rewarding.

    Surprised nobody mentioned this yet.

    Most quadcopters use smaller and lighter PG-7V warheads, where as this drone clearly is using the large PG-7VL. It'll be much more effective against tanks. And tanks are a perfect target.
    Quadcopters can maneuver far better than fixed wing, but a tank isn't going to need any maneuvers to hit
