Griffin-12 - multifunction Russian unmanned aerial vehicles, designed by "Plaza".

Unmanned aerial vehicle model Gryphon-12 was designed by Russian engineers on the basis of UAV models Griffin-11, in this case, the similarity can be traced only in the design and appearance, though both aircrafts radically different from each other.

The Russian unmanned aerial vehicle of the Grifon-12 model is intended for civilian use, in particular, this air means has the ability to be used for aerial photography and aerial photography, special reconnaissance work (cartography, topography, geology, geodesy, etc.), observation and Monitoring flights, as well as patrol operations.

The device has a quite conventional dimensions, in particular when the length of the drone in 1 meter span of its wings is 2 30 meter centimeters.

The power part of the UAV is represented by one electric brushless motor that is capable of supporting devices during flight 3 hours, with a maximum airspeed in 120 km \ hr., And maximum repetition 90 range in kilometers.
