The Zephyrus is the edurance class of Drone America’s roatary fleet. Designed for the most demanding missions, the Zephyrus line of UAS leaves most other multiotor drones behind with its longer flight times, range of speeds and heavier payloads. The Zephyrus class was designed as a customizable solution to meet the demands of your exact mission.
Zephyrus models can be configured for either quiet electric or hushed multi-fuel operations. If your mission has a specific need for maximum flight ranges, heavy lifting capabilities, high altitude operations and low maintenance, Drone America can build and configure a system to fit your needs.
The Drone America Zephyrus line is built to order so contact us today to explore how a custom Zephyrus can successfully work for you.
Carbon Fiber Airframe
The Zephyrus’s carbon fiber airframe allows for lightweight handling, longer flight times, and more sensor and camera capabilities.
The Zephyrus can be configured to carry up to 33 pounds of payloads and/or sensors.
Camera and Sensors
Multiple cameras and sensors can be installed and configured for specific needs and missions, such as Visible, Thermal, Infrared, UV, Multi-spectral, Hyper-spectral, Atmospheric and Photogrammetry.
7 hour flight times can be achieved by converting the Zephyrus from electric to multi-fuel power.
Zephyrus Flight Video
With many options for payloads and sensors, and custom configurations, the Zephyrus’s diverse capabilities allows for near endless applications in the commercial world.
The Zephyrus’s design allows it to be configured to meet the tough demands for emergency personnel and to be rapidly deployed during emergency situations and operations.
Search and Rescue
By utilizing a lightweight airframe, VTOL take-off and landing and way-point controls, the Zephyrus is able to used quickly; be it in a confined remote location or at a research facility.
