Minerva is the concept of a multifunctional unmanned aerial vehicle developed by German designer Dominique Felix Finger.

The unmanned aerial vehicle of the Minerva model was designed by the German designer as a cargo aircraft, which was supposed to provide the drone with the ability to transport various types of cargo, goods and products. However, in addition to its main task, an unmanned aerial vehicle can also carry out patrol, observation and monitoring missions, used for logistic purposes, etc. Nevertheless, despite the prospects of this project, this drone was not allowed to be developed yet, that is due to the lack of interested investors and potential operators.

The multipurpose unmanned airborne Minerva was designed in a configuration combining the capabilities of the aircraft and the drone, in particular, the fuselage design has an external similarity to the airplane configuration, while the UAV is equipped with four screws like the multi-copters, which allows the drone to take off and land in vertical plane, thereby ensuring the use of this device in an unprepared terrain. The aircraft has a very compact design, which simplifies its use and its transportation.

The power section of the cargo unmanned aerial vehicle of the Minerva model is represented by four electric motors that are capable of accelerating the air to the maximum speed of flight at 60 km / h, which is quite acceptable.
