UAV Factory upgrades Penguin B

Latvian UAV designer UAV Factory has upgraded the options for the Penguin B small unmanned aerial vehicle, extending its range and capabilities, the company says.

With a new onboard generator system, the Penguin B can now constantly supply 80W of dual-voltage power to payloads, UAV Factory says. The company has also developed a larger, 7.5L tank for the four-stroke Honda gas engine, taking its endurance to more than 20h. The larger fuel tank is also available on the two-stroke engine model for up to 10h of endurance.

The V-tailed UAV, with its 3.3m (10.8ft) wingspan, has a combined fuel-and-payload capacity of 11.5kg (25.4lbs), the company says. Rather than using a catapult or being thrown like some small unmanned reconnaissance aircraft, the Penguin B can take off autonomously from a simple launcher attached to a standard car-top rack.
