Thunderwasp

The Thunderwasp air drone is a scalable system starting at only 200 kg for easy handling, while offering top-range payload capacity. The Thunderwasp can run on 95 to 98 octane standard petrol or Jet A1 fuel.

The Thunderwasp can integrate and carry almost any sensor with a weight of up to 1000 kg, even higher with customisation, while unique patented driveline creates minimal vibration for stable sensor and video operation.
