American developers have created an unmanned wing-transformer

Experts from the University of Minnesota has created a new unmanned aerial vehicle SUAV:Q, which is an aerodynamic wing. The wing is tested in and reported that the first tests were successful. The UAV can vertically take off and land like a helicopter.

The Apparatus consists of four parts which allow the drone to develop into a kind of box. After takeoff, the device straightens all four sections, turning into hovering over the surface of the wing. It can fly at altitudes of up to 120 meters, wingspan SUAV:Q — two meters, and weighs about four kilograms.

Due to its design and solar panels, this wing may have to be in the air, while not expending too much energy, and he doesn't need a runway, so the use of the development engineers of the University of Minnesota can be including in remote areas. Engineers report that their drone can be useful to firefighters, police officers or be able to be useful for agriculture.
