DragonFly DP-5X WASP - American multi-purpose tactical unmanned aerial vehicle developed in 2006, the «DragonFly» company.
Design of unmanned aircraft model DragonFly DP-5X WASP started by US experts and engineers in the field of aerospace technology in 2003 year. The new device is expected initially to use exclusively as a civil drone, used for reconnaissance, patrol and observation flights, and others. However, later, an unmanned aerial vehicle is also interested and representatives of the military sphere, and therefore launched work on the improvement of the device for subsequent use in the United States Armed forces.
The first flight of an unmanned aircraft model DragonFly DP-5X WASP was promoted to 2006 year, and due to the fact that the device has proved very effective, and all planned tests have been successfully completed, the project went into production, but according to 2015 years, drone DragonFly DP-5X WASP is operated only in the civilian sector.
Sufficiently large size unmanned air tool DragonFly DP-5X WASP, does not impact on the maneuverability and controllability of the drone, while it is important to clarify the fact that the device has a relatively low weight - the weight of the UAV is only 108 kg.
The power plant is represented by a miniature UAV turbine engine, which allows the device to reach a maximum speed of its flight in 160 km \ h., While the maximum length of the drone finding is limited to three hours in the air.
