“…UAV Factory LLC has announced the release of its production-ready Penguin C Mk2 Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) long-endurance aircraft. Based on the operationally proven and reliable catapult-launched Penguin C UAS, the Penguin C Mk2 VTOL platform is a complete, turnkey solution providing unmatched endurance and performance. The Penguin C Mk2 VTOL provides precision vertical takeoff and landing capability to support missions in more restrictive environments. The Penguin C Mk2 VTOL introduces the patented AEROFLOW Boom Technology, enabling a 20% increase in flight endurance. The patented technology showcases hoods over the vertical lifting rotors that automatically enclose the lifting rotors while the vehicle is in horizontal flight, significantly reducing the parasitic drag on the vehicle. The result is 14+ hours of flight endurance, making it the ideal VTOL solution in its class. The VTOL booms are made of advanced carbon-fiber composite, which makes them both light and rigid. Battery replacement is quick and simple and can be done in under 2 minutes, minimizing the delay between flights. With the added weight of the booms to enable VTOL operations, the Penguin C Mk2 VTOL steps into the Group 3 UAS category with an MTOW of 32kg / 70.6 lb…”
