ZALA 421-05H - compact multipurpose helicopter type UAV, which is designed for visual reconnaissance and monitoring of the transfer of video picture on the ground control station in real time. As part of the payload UAV has a color camera, infrared camera based microbolometer array, which can be replaced by a digital camera.

The model of an unmanned lethal devices can be an indispensable tool for the Ministry of Interior of video and photographic images of places of crime and large-scale accidents.

Also, unmanned mini-helicopters can be used within the settlements during a special operation.

Using light UAV services for the benefit of the Russian Interior Ministry has the following advantages:

  • Preparation for the launch of the UAV is not time consuming;

  • due to the small acoustic and visual stealth is provided visibility of operations and activities;

  • to maintain the complex requires a minimum staff of experts;

  • excellent economic performance.

It can be argued that the experience of using UAVs ZALA 421-05H in various structures of the Russian Interior Ministry has been successful.

Representatives of the Interior Ministry noted ZALA 421-05H a number of advantages, such as rapid deployment and ease of maintenance of the complex. However, it was found and real flaws - at a distance of 3-5 km from ground control analog signal could be lost. Therefore, it makes sense to replace it on the digital signal. Also called the lack of camera inoperable. In order to successfully perform the tasks, the Ministry of Interior is required camera with azimuthal rotation.

Representatives of the Ministry of Internal Affairs also noted that during the whole period of operation of the ZALA 421-05H, there were no safety problems, despite the fact that no clear rules for flying UAVs were developed.
