The delftAcopter is a biplane aircraft made by MAVLab. It has a double wing to limit the influence of the wind while taking off and landing. It has a single big rotor blade for propulsion and two small rotors for stability.
The wing span is about 1.60 metres; it can fly 100 kilometres an hour and has a range of 60 kilometres. The drone is equipped with GPS and the latest on-board video techniques, so that it can fly autonomously.
Because the delftAcopter can take off and land at difficult to access places, such ships, it can be used for search and rescue missions at sea.
