The design of the NAL / ADE Black Kite multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle was highly experimental, in particular, experts in the field of aerospace technology developed a new device configuration that made the drone compact and made the device less visible. The fuselage of the unmanned aerial vehicle is made in the form of a circle - such a form factor provides the device with ample carrying capacity and maintains aerodynamics, which, in essence, makes the UAV of this model very maneuverable.

Drone model NAL / ADE Black Kite is equipped with low-power brushless electric motor, which allows the device to develop quite a high speed of movement, but it also carries and negative, in particular, the duration of the flight of such a device is very limited, and is only about 30 minutes in the air .

UAV is equipped with a high resolution camera that allows the device to transmit the image area - originally, the drone was planned for use in the armed forces of India to carry out reconnaissance, aided quite small UAV dimensions, in particular, at length in 35 centimeters scope wings device is only 30 cm (depending on the device version).

Indian unmanned aerial vehicle produced in three basic versions:

  • NAL / ADE Black Kite XL - Basic version drone with a wingspan 50 centimeters;
  • NAL / ADE Black Kite M - Modification with reduced wingspan of up to 32 centimeters;
  • NAL / ADE Black Kite S - A miniature version of the drone with a wingspan 30 centimeters.
