Freewing SCORPION 60-25

Scorpion is a multipurpose drones, created by the American company Freewing Aerial Robotics. It is a short-range unmanned aerial vehicle, in which the manufacturer used the principle to ensure a constant angle of attack of the wing throughout the flight. The main advantages that are achieved by the design of the UAV are improved longitudinal stability in wind gusts and improved stability in the event of speed loss. The use of various sensors allows the device to successfully perform the tasks assigned to it under conditions where other UAV configurations are useless.

Through the use of sloping body design "Scorpion" can land and take off at too steep trajectory, using the slope of the thrust vector. This especially helps when taking off from unprepared UAV platform and the landing on board naval ship in heavy seas. Insensitive to wind gusts and turbulence allows Scorpion drone working in extreme conditions, which are not able to withstand other existing drones.

Together with the company Freewing Aerial Robotics the development of this device was the company Scaled Composites. In a joint project, they designed the configuration of an inclined hull, chassis and tail structure, developed a new wing profile optimized to provide maximum lift with minimal losses. Management of pitch and roll is provided by the operation of external elevons. The company Scaled Composites owns the manufacture of the entire composite frame, the installation of the Rotax engine and flight control systems. Now the unmanned vehicle is undergoing a flight test program. Released two modifications of the UAV Scorpion - Scorpion 60-25 and Scorpion 100-60. Between themselves, they differ only in size (Scorpion 60-25 - smaller).
