Loon Copter is a civilian multifunctional unmanned aerial vehicle developed by scientists from the University of Auckland New Zealand.

The unmanned aerial vehicle of the Loon Copter model was designed exclusively for civilian applications, while the aircraft has very wide functional and operational capabilities that allow the drone to perform tasks related to aerial photography and aerial photography, conduct observation missions, patrol the terrain, etc. less, the key feature of this UAV is the ability to move not only in the air. Noi underwater, while the device can develop a fairly high speed of movement, which is suitable, including for search and rescue missions.

The New Zealand unmanned aerial vehicle of the Loon Copter model was developed in a quadrocopter configuration, which allows the airplane to take off and land in a vertical plane and, therefore, to be used in virtually any terrain conditions. This aircraft has a compact and reliable design, which does not cause problems either during operation, or during the transportation of the aircraft.

The power section of the unmanned aircraft Loon Copter is represented by four electric brushless motors that are capable of accelerating the aircraft to a maximum speed of flight of 54 km / h, and moving under water at a speed of 6 km / h, while the autonomy of the UAV operation is limited to 40 minutes.
