The Bug Nano drone provides evidence that a Nano drone can not only stand up to heavy wind, but is also able to compete with its bigger brothers.

This 191g UAV provides the operator with full-motion 1080p video back from 2km away and is combined with the ability to withstand gusts of over 40knts and flight times up to 40 minutes.

The UAV was designed and built in the UK which UAVTEK says “marks a change in the ability for UK industry to produce world class unmanned systems.”
