M-18 Gull - Chinese multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicles, developed by Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in 1996 year.

UAV M-18 Gull models were developed by Chinese scientists in the first half 90-ies of the last century, at the same time, air tool was positioned as a research project, which, however, did not prevent the fact that the device has been put into mass production and It received fairly broad support in the civil sphere.

Aircraft of the M-18 Gull model can be used to carry out tasks related to conducting reconnaissance flights (geodesy, cartography, geology, etc.), conducting meteorological research, carrying out activities related to observation, patrolling and monitoring of the terrain, aerial photography and aerial photography of the terrain , Exploitation for the purposes of cinematography, etc. Despite the fact that by modern standards this device does not meet a number of requirements, the operation of the M-18 Gull UAV zhaetsya and today, albeit in a rather limited extent.

UAV M-18 Gull constructed in helicopter type configuration, thus, it has a system drone coaxial rotors, which makes it quite maneuverable and speed.

Chinese multifunctional unmanned aerial vehicle model M-18 Gull equipped with one internal combustion piston engine, having a rod which in 80 hp able to disperse 300-kilogram structure to maximum flight speed in 140 km \ h.
