About NOVAerial Robotics Inc.
NOVAerial Robotics Inc. is a manufacturer of high-performance unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV’s) with a particular emphasis on single rotor helicopter-style UAVs. NOVAerial’s main product is the Procyon 800E, which is quickly becoming renowned for its performance, practical design, high quality made in-house components and reliable flight control system. Not only does its design and construction make it more reliable and easy to maintain, it is also more compact and less expensive than similar UAV’s made by competitors. The Procyon 800E is ideally suited for complicated and high-performance UAV applications, offering vertical take-off capability, while combining high speeds and long flight times not possible with multirotor UAVs. Flight control is similar to multirotor UAVs, which allows experienced multirotor operators to benefit from the advantages of the helicopter platform after just a single day of additional training.
