The design of the unmanned aircraft Nimbus EosXi is made in a very unusual configuration, which is inherently a hybrid of an airplane and a hang glider equipped with a gas-filled shell. This device was designed by experts in the field of aircraft engineering and aerospace technologies at the beginning of the 2000-ies, and it was originally assumed that the drone would be developed on the basis of a conventional motorized hang glider; however, to provide a higher lift device, it was decided to modernize the standard design, Which is why a gas-filled shell appeared here.

UAV Nimbus EosXi is for civil purposes, such as the drone is actively used for tasks related to patrolling the area, used for aerial photography is used as a repeater equipment, however, among other things, the UAV Nimbus EosXi can also be used for the implementation of search operations, is used as a means of geological prospecting, etc..

Through the use of gas-filled shell, drone Nimbus EosXi equipped with low-power power ustanvokoy that nevertheless allows drones to carry out take-off and landing on short distances, however, due to the use of the weak by its engine power, maximum speed of the device is quite limited and is only 50 km \ h., while the maximum length of the drone flight is limited to three hours.

Drone Nimbus EosXi can be equipped with a variety of visual inspection devices, which includes electro-optical, infrared, multispectral and thermal cameras, which provides extensive use with this device.
