NUAA Osprey - Chinese civil unmanned aerial vehicle of multi-purpose type, developed by scientists from Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in 2008.

The Chinese multifunctional unmanned aerial vehicle of the NUAA Osprey model was designed exclusively for civilian use, and the aircraft can perform the most versatile tasks, including reconnaissance operations (it should be understood exclusively for civilian purposes), patrolling, monitoring and observation missions, Research tasks, aerial photography, etc. Despite all these factors, the serial production of these flying Apparatus was never deployed, which is mainly due to the experimental nature of the drone, however, it is reported that with personal orders, the release of this drone is still possible.

The multipurpose NUAA Osprey unmanned aerial vehicle was designed in a convertoplan configuration, which due to its relatively small overall dimensions allows this device to take off and land in almost any terrain, including unprepared, but for a variety of reasons, the transportation of the drone can cause some difficulties.

The power section of the NUAA Osprey is represented by two piston engines that can accelerate the air to the maximum speed of the flight at 150 km / h, however, the effective range of missions is limited to 40 kilometers.
