Airbus Zephyr 8 - British multifunctional drone civilian developed aircraft building concern «Airbus» in 2015 year.

Unmanned aerial vehicles of this model was designed by British aircraft designers on the basis of the aircraft model Airbus Zephyr 7, in this case, due to the changes done, the device has changed, and structurally and technically, so that was more promising than its predecessor.

British drone aircraft model Airbus Zephyr 8 2013 become designed in the year, and this device is intended primarily for use in the field of science, in particular, allow the drone to carry out environmental monitoring, to conduct continuous aerial photography, to perform scientific tasks, and so forth.

the general public has been presented for the first time this unit in September 2015 years, and has committed its first flight in the middle of the year 2016. Despite the fact that the tests of the aircraft have been completed quite successfully, the project has not received a lot of support, and in fact, turned out to be frozen.

With its length of 10 meters, unmanned aerial sredsvto model Airbus Zephyr 8 has a wingspan equal to 28 meter, which provides a stable hover the device, and this in turn makes it possible to carry out drone flights at ranges up to 21,3 thousand kilometers.

Power section British Research UAV Airbus Zephyr 8 represented by one electric brushless motor, which is able to disperse the device to limit the speed of flight in 100 km \ h., The duration the device being in the air is restricted mainly electric power margin allocated solar panels, located on the fuselage.
