This vehicle is designed with modular wings and propulsion units to offer different flight characteristics in order to be flexible for changing environmental conditions and/or mission specific configurations.
The fuselage, light weight yet robust construction, is unique in that the structural skin is thermoformed over a durable foam core and then sealed and chemically bonded and reinforced at the seams. Hard points are throughout for anchoring components. Wings are composed of a durable EPP foam core strengthened with a combination of laminated wood, fibergalss, and and carbon spar blades then covered with a woven skin
The HLE-3210 R/C Plane can be flown with a configuration of two or four batteries for extended range flights. The HLE-3210 weighs approximately 7lbs and can remain in the air up to 2 hrs with 4 batteries.
With a burst power of over 1500 watts the HLE-3210 exhibits specialty performance allowing rapid vertical climbs and very quick dash speeds. The oversized prop increases efficiancy and allows the HLE-3210 to remain in the air longer at cruise speeds.
A BTC 88 or BTC 101 gimbal provides a clear unobstructed view in 360°. The gimbal is incorporated into the aerodynamic shape of the airframe and includes a retraction mechanism to pull the gimbal inside for landings. Beetle wing doors seal the gimbal compartment to protect the optics from debris on landings.
