Propulsive Wing - American experimental unmanned aircraft, developed in 2000-ies.

UAV Propulsive Wing model is a patented device, which has the possibility of a sharp change in angle of attack, which allows drone to be very agile, rapidly picking up or lowering the height of its flight. In fact, this UAV is a class of civilian drones, however, at the moment the possibility that devices can operate it only for research purposes.

A key design feature of the UAV model Propulsive Wing is the presence of the wings of the fan motor, which increases the rotational speed or the decline of this indicator, and you can change the angle of attack.

The Propulsive Wing drone has a small overall dimensions - with its length of only 0,8 meters, the wingspan of the UAV is about 1,4 meters, which provides good aerodynamic performance, and also allows it to develop a sufficiently high flight speed.

Powerplant unmanned aerial Propulsive Wing model vehicle represented by a single electric motor (it is supposed to equip only a prototype), which is having a sufficiently high traction, able to overclock the device to the maximum speed of movement in 80 km \ h., While the effective flight range of this device is about 15 kilometers.

It is expected that by the year 2018 can be deployed mass production of unmanned aerial vehicles this model.
