The Wingcopter 198 delivers where it is needed and when it is needed. Building on the patented tilt-rotor technology, the Wingcopter 198 surpasses previous performance & durability standards making it an optimal all-weather delivery drone that can withstand strong winds and rain.
The Delivery Drone
The Wingcopter 198 delivers heavy payloads over long ranges, pushing the envelope of what is possible.
Payload: Up to 6 kg total
Range: Up to 110 km
Wind resistance: 15 m/s average, 20 m/s gusts
Default cruise speed: 100 km/h
Optimised for Cargo Flights
The unique aerodynamic design enables an efficient forward flight with a wide centre of gravity for flexible payload attachments, making it an optimal drone for cargo delivery.
Enhanced Flight Characteristics
The winglets extend the surface of the wing making it more efficient in fixed-wing mode without compromising the compact size of the drone.
Safety & Reliability
Reliable and safe flight operations are fundamental requirements for viable and scalable drone delivery solutions beyond visual line of sight. Thanks to the redundant system architecture, the Wingcopter 198 provides an extremely high degree of reliability and safety.
Redundant Flight Control System
The Wingcopter 198 is equipped with dual airspeed sensors, dual heading and positioning systems, and dual flight controllers.
This redundant system architecture ensures uninterrupted control over the aircraft.
Fail-safe Power Train Architecture
The Wingcopter 198 utilises eight motors, eight ESCs, and two batteries to assure operational safety, even if there is a failure in the power train.
Advanced Risk Detection
The advanced collision avoidance system of the Wingcopter 198 including ADS-B in, FLARM, and Remote ID, assures the highest safety standards.
In addition, multiple cameras with the optical awareness system detect obstacles, while an integrated AI will assess risks in real-time, and if necessary, initiates evasive flight maneuvers.
The Wingcopter 198 is specifically designed to address the cost of delivery with innovative features, including a triple-drop system, unique control station software for efficient mission planning, and advanced maintenance technology.
The Triple Drop
The Wingcopter 198 can deliver up to 3 separate packages to multiple locations with a total weight of 5 kg during one single flight.
For each delivery stop the Wingcopter 198 transitions from forward flight mode to hover mode and lowers the package in a matter of seconds.
The entire delivery process is completely automated, reducing delivery costs and maximising route efficiency.
The Power of Ten
The control station software enables a single pilot in command to fly & monitor up to 10 drones simultaneously from remote locations.
In addition, its intuitive features make flight and mission planning as simple and straight forward as possible.
Advanced Maintenance Technology
Performance data from components is automatically uploaded to a secure database for efficient maintenance management.
This advanced maintenance technology avoids unplanned downtimes, improves fleet reliability, and lowers maintenance costs.
Ease & Efficiency of Operations
In logistics or transportation, the efficiency of operations is key. The Wingcopter 198 is the drone delivery solution that supports logistics providers by making delivery operations as easy and as efficient as possible.
High Level of Autonomy
The Wingcopter 198 is designed for level 4 autonomous flying & deliveries thereby reducing the need for human interaction.
The high level of autonomy enables quick setup and training as well as efficient and stable operations, shifting the focus from drone to logistics operations.
Quick & Easy Mission Planning
The control station software is a system for flight and mission planning, aircraft control, and operational monitoring.
It is specifically designed to enhance the workflow of the pilot in command and the logistics provider.
An integrated elevation and airspace database make mission planning quicker, safer and more efficient.
Improved Capacity Management
One pilot in command can control and monitor up to 10 drones simultaneously. In case of overload, underutilisation, or during a shift change, the special hand-over functionality of the control station allows to hand-over delivery missions in-flight and in real-time.
The handover functionality supports logistics providers to optimise the utilisation of the delivery fleet.
Maximise Time in the Air
The smart batteries that power the Wingcopter 198 are designed to maximise the time in the air and to ensure long battery life.
The smart batteries are optimised for quick swaps and easy ground handling.
The Wingcopter Cloud allows for mission planning to be independent of the operation. APIs enable a seamless integration of fleet information into customer software solutions.
Alternatively, customers benefit from the Wingcopter Cloud, its APIs, and the control station as a turnkey solution to quickly start operations.
