Delftacopter - American unmanned aerial vehicle developed by Delft University in the United States 2016 year.

American drone Delftacopter model has a rather narrow specificity of its application, in particular, this device is designed for transportation of various kinds of medical supplies, which should include medication, donor agencies, medical equipment and so on. Despite the fact that the development of this innovative air tools not widely popular, the prospects for such aircraft means there is definitely that is especially true for countries in which there are remote areas.

Depending on the required tasks, American UAV can perform movement in a "helicopter" and "Jets" modes, in particular this factor accelerates required goods delivery process and minimizes the risk of damage. Moreover, thanks to the possibility to carry out take-off in a vertical plane, unmanned aerial vehicle can be used even on unprepared sites.

His first technical flight tests and unmanned aerial vehicle Delftacopter model has undergone in 2016 year, however, due to the fact that the drone is currently characterized as an experienced pilot and a sample batch production of UAV is that it was not deployed.

The power of this aircraft is represented by three electric motors, which are able to overclock the device to the maximum airspeed in 107 km \ h., At the same time, the effective range of the device following 42 kilometers.
