UAV Navigation has released footage of its testing work on its Vector Autopilot fully automatic autorotation capability.
It says its Vector autopilot is one of very few autopilots to have a fully functional autorotation capability.
It was developed as part of the requirement for a customer using an Enstrom 480B helicopter which was converted from a standard manned aircraft into a UAV in 2017.
UAV Navigation says the functionality has been further tested and demonstrated on other smaller UAVs, including a conventional configuration 2m rotor disc, piston-engined helicopter.
