Work on the design of unmanned aircraft DragonFly DP-6XT began with the American company DragonFly in 2005. In the development of this drone, some earlier projects were used, which in turn allowed not only to reduce the cost of the project itself, but also to minimize the timing of its implementation. The sphere of application of the DragonFly DP-6XT unmanned aerial vehicle is limited only to the civil sector, however, this drone can be used for a wide range of tasks, including reconnaissance of the terrain (including hard-to-reach), patrol and observation flights, search operations, A number of special missions, etc.

The first tests of the DragonFly DP-6XT unmanned aerial vehicle began in 2007, however, initially the device could not successfully complete them, which is why the drone was sent for technical improvement, however, after two months the tests were repeated and the project this time turned out to be quite effective.

Design UAV DragonFly DP-6XT represented in miniature twin-rotor helicopter configuration. Using the additional rotor not only increased resistance when the UAV flights, and increased maneuverability of the device.

The power plant of the UAV is represented by two electric motors capable of supporting the device in a mode of autonomous flight to 1 hours, with the maximum speed of the UAV in a space of up to 90 km \ h., Which is very effective.
