Using a converted standard Helicopter Drone, the Ventus Group Heavy Lifting Service is designed to remotely pick up a payload of up to 230kg and safely release it at the desired location.
With a cruising speed of 160km per hour and a four-stroke engine, the unmanned helicopter drone can transport heavy items to their destination. Featuring automatic vertical take-off and landing, the whole flight can be completed in automatic mode, enabling the lifting of goods to be managed remotely, says the press release.
the technology enables the route to be planned out in advance yet adjusted as necessary during the flight. Functionality also ensures the helicopter continues its flight route or returns to launch in the case of a lost communication signal. In addition, the user can monitor the flight of the unmanned aircraft and its parameters, including speed, altitude, quality of signal and battery charge, during the flight in real time.
The transport of the helicopter is done on a usual car trailer. It can be easily transported and operated with only 2 man crew within any country. Worldwide expeditions are also available because of the possibility to fit in a regular 20-foot container.
“We were delighted to receive huge interest in the new joint Ventus Group and Unmanned Helicopters product and service during our demonstration days in Poland,” commented Ventus Group CTO Poul-Anker Lübker. “The world watched the first time on as a converted helicopter drone remotely picked up, transported and safely released 200kg of payload, all without a pilot!”
