Tongji Pterosaur is a Chinese civil unmanned aerial vehicle developed by specialists from Tongji University.

The Tongji Pterosaur unmanned multifunctional airframe is designed to carry out purely research missions, which, incidentally, does not underestimate its capabilities, as it can include ornithology, and study of atmospheric phenomena, and conducting monitoring missions, etc. This drone did not get much success, therefore the aircraft was manufactured only in accordance with the orders, and according to the mid-2016 year, the release of the Tongji Pterosaur was officially discontinued.

The Chinese Tongji Pterosaur unmanned aerial vehicle was designed by scientists and engineers from Tongji University in an airplane-type configuration, and the device is of a very simple construction, which ensured the production of this drone at no cost. The Tongji Pterosaur unmanned air vehicle has fairly compact overall dimensions, in particular, with a fuselage length of 2 meters 50 centimeters, the wingspan of this drone is 2 meters 20 centimeters, which greatly simplifies the transportation and operation processes.

The power part of the Chinese unmanned air vehicle of the Tongji Pterosaur model is represented by two electric engines that are capable of giving the drone a maximum speed of flight of 90 km / h, which is quite suitable for the above described purposes and tasks, however, the maximum duration of the drone in the air is limited at the same time 1,5 for hours.
