Orlan 1 - Russian trainer UAV, developed by the "Special technology center."

The unmanned aerial vehicle Orlan 1 was designed to train future operators of unmanned aerial vehicles, and this applies not only to the military sphere of application, where this device is used most intensively, but also to the civil one, where the drone is operated less frequently, but no less efficiently . Due to the rather narrow specificity of its application, this air means did not find much popularity, in particular, only a few dozens of aircraft were built during the entire production period, after which the production of the Orlan 1 drones was officially discontinued.

The Russian unmanned aerial vehicle Orlan 1 has a fairly compact design, which allows this aircraft to be easily transported to the place of direct operation, and also does not cause problems with its use, in particular, with a fuselage length of 54 centimeters, the unmanned aerial vehicle has a wingspan of 98 centimeters, and the mass of the device does not exceed 5 kilograms.

As a means of surveillance, unmanned aircraft Orlan 1 applies only electro-optical camera, which allows to record flight data and are subsequently evaluated.

Despite the fact that the unmanned aerial vehicle equipped with an electric motor, the effective range of the UAV is 100 kilometers and a maximum of a speed equal Moved 170 km \ h, which is quite acceptable.
