AURA100 – 145 kg payload challenge

Flight-tests of Aura-100 were carried out at the end of 2020 to determine maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of the UAV. 120 kg of payload and 25 kg of fuel were lifted at hovering mode in ground effect. As a result maximum take-off weight of Aura-100 was scaled up to 352 kg with stability and controllability verified.
