Background

Commonly known as drones, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) are used in situations where manned flight is considered too risky or difficult. These aircraft can remain airborne for long periods, sending back real-time imagery of activities on the ground. UAV’s are equipped with different surveillance technologies and are controlled remotely by an operator on the ground. This is done by radio control, using feedback mechanisms built into the UAV mechanism, and utilising the Global Positioning Satellites (“GPS”).

A typical UAV is constructed from composite materials to reduce weight and increase manoeuvrability. Lithium polymer (LiPo) batteries and Electronic Speed Controllers are linked to high power electric motors in a compact package
