Design of unmanned aircraft has been deployed by the Swiss aircraft manufacturers and design engineers in the first half 80-ies. Initially unmanned aerial vehicle was of an exclusively scientific and research interest, however, after the drone was civil and military purposes, and has been applied as a UAV target, but without immediate destruction of the drone, but only to practice aiming mechanism.

Unmanned aerial vehicle, despite its fairly compact size, has a very impressive weight, which is why the launch of the drone carries with a special catapult that to some extent complicates the process of UAV operation, since it requires, and more time to prepare the drone to launch, and complicates the process device mobility.

Control unmanned vehicle model KZD-85 next using a special hand control panel, thus, the effective radius of action of the UAV is substantially limited, and is only 2,5 kilometers, however, considering the actual application of the drone, higher rates and this value is not required.

Powerplant unmanned air tool provided a thin piston engine, which allows the device to accelerate to the maximum speed of its flight in 120 km \ h., While the duration of the flight is limited to one hour.

Any tracking devices and monitoring the unmanned aerial vehicle is not equipped with.
