Perdix - American multi-purpose miniature unmanned aerial vehicle, developed by MIT.

Development of miniature unmanned aerial vehicle Perdix model was initiated by the US Department of Defense, at the same time, the air vehicle could be used for a large number of a variety of tasks, including the implementation of special operations, carrying out reconnaissance and observation flights, etc. According to 2017 years, aware of the existence of at least four instances of the UAV, which are in use in the United States government agencies.

The main feature of this aircraft is its fairly rapid manufacture, in particular, the basic elements of the fuselage and can be printed on printer 3d that actually refers to the fact that this air means may be produced in large quantities at minimal cost.

Due to its small dimensions, and at the length of the device in 15,5 centimeters and scope of its wings in 30 centimeters, the aircraft is quite simple in terms of its operational capabilities while. Some US media claim that this air tool can be run in large quantities to combat fighters, remaining thus invisible to a potential enemy.

The power of the American UAV presented Perdix a brushless electric motor, which is able to overclock the device to the maximum airspeed in 110 km \ h. However, the maximum duration of the autonomous being in the air is only 20 minutes.
