NOVAerial Robotics Inc.

NOVAerial Robotics is a manufacturer of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s). NOVAerial’s well received primary UAV is the Procyon 800 E, a single rotor helicopter style UAV.

The Procyon combines vertical takeoff capability with fast, long-range flight, and high wind tolerance in a cost-effective package. In addition, it is equipped with the most full-featured, high performance and reliable open source flight control system available.

Helicopters can be just as easy to fly as multi-rotors. In some ways, helicopters are actually easier to fly than multirotors, as they are more stable in wind and at high speed. And any VTOL is easier to take-off and land than a conventional airplane, because the operator does not need to plan for often complicated take-off procedures and landing zones. The addition of drone flight control computers, self-stabilization features, GPS guidance, automatic RTL, and even Waypoint capability makes the Procyon easy to fly.

Advantages of helicopter UAV’s:

  • Robust VTOL Performance
  • More efficient flight plans
  • Fast forward flight
  • Longer flight range
  • Mature technology
  • Compact transport and rapid deployment

Design advantages of the Procyon system are:

  • Mechanical simplicity
  • Independent tail rotor motor
  • 3D printed body
  • Single-stage main rotor belt drive
  • Flexible payload options
  • Ardupilot flight control system
