Geoscan 701 aircraft with ICE makes its maiden flight

Geoscan 701 is an aircraft for aerial surveying designed to achieve maximum productivity per one flight due to using ICE.

A new model of UAV is designed under the traditional aerodynamic scheme. The supply of fuel (which is a mixture of petrol and oil) is enough for 10 hours of flight, and, as a result, the plane can cover up to 800 km. The UAV is supplied with a starter-alternator, which allows switching on the engine automatically and providing power for a payload and systems of onboard radio electronic equipment during a flight.
