UAV Electric Propulsion System Survey
We're gathering information about propulsion systems used in modern electric UAV in order to provide drone vendors and operators with a robust and energy-efficient propulsion system. Please fill this survey once per every model of airframe you have. It is expected that some of the questions might be difficult to answer; feel free to skip them right away.
Type of vehicle *
Number of rotors (excluding the tail rotor for traditional helicopters) *
Your answer
Maximum take-off weight [kilogram] *
Your answer
Source of electric energy *
If you're looking for Lithium Polymer, please pick Lithium-ion (same thing)
Smart battery? *
Nominal supply voltage of the propulsion system (e.g. 44V or 12S) *
Your answer
Endurance *
Nominal power per motor (or average per motor) [watt]
Skip this question if not sure.
Your answer
