DragonFly DP-5X WASP - American multi-purpose tactical unmanned aerial vehicle developed in 2006, the «DragonFly» company.

The design of an unmanned aircraft DragonFly DP-5X WASP was started by American specialists and engineers in the field of aerospace engineering in 2003. The new device was originally intended to be used exclusively as a civilian drone, used for reconnaissance, patrolling and observation flights, etc. However, subsequently, an unmanned aerial vehicle also interested representatives of the military sphere, and in this connection, work was begun to improve this device with The purpose of subsequent use in the US Armed Forces.

The first flight of an unmanned aircraft model DragonFly DP-5X WASP was promoted to 2006 year, and due to the fact that the device has proved very effective, and all planned tests have been successfully completed, the project went into production, but according to 2015 years, drone DragonFly DP-5X WASP is operated only in the civilian sector.

Sufficiently large size unmanned air tool DragonFly DP-5X WASP, does not impact on the maneuverability and controllability of the drone, while it is important to clarify the fact that the device has a relatively low weight - the weight of the UAV is only 108 kg.

The power plant is represented by a miniature UAV turbine engine, which allows the device to reach a maximum speed of its flight in 160 km \ h., While the maximum length of the drone finding is limited to three hours in the air.
