We finally have our hybrid UAV, the HY1000

Wheelbase: 1000mm
No payload weight: 4.5kg (no fuel)
Max take-off Weight: 10 kg
Max speed: 10m/s
Max flight time: Over 4 hours
Voltage: 22V 
Generator output: 1 kw
Generator weight: 1.6 kg
Fuel tank: 1L (Customizable)
Fuel consumption: 800g/H(Max)

An internal combustion engine consumes gasoline and spins a generator to ensure a 22V output. Besides this, a 6S lipo battery package is also installed onboard to offer emergency back-up power for quick climbing and quick maneuvering.

With 1kg payload, the flight time is more than 3 hours, and with 3kg payload like a high-end camera, the flight time will be still more than 1 hour.

Fuel consumption: 800g/kwh

Generator weight: 1600g

Accessories weight: 150g (backup battery)

Generator dimensions: 21 x 16 x 9 cm
