On August 15, at the invitation of China Railway Fourth Bureau, the Feiyu UAV team came to China Railway Group Co., Ltd. in Hefei, Anhui. During this trip, Feiyu UAV carried "FY-VT01 vertical take-off and landing UAV", which is also the product expected by the Fourth Bureau of China Railway. It will be hoverable in the following product display and aerial survey applications. , Long battery life, easy to use and other advantages, built a bridge for cooperation between Feiyu and China Railway Fourth Bureau.


Conventional fixed-wing UAVs have the characteristics of long endurance and fast flight speed, but they have higher requirements on the threshold of use and take-off and landing sites. Multi-rotor UAVs have the characteristics of being able to take off and land vertically, but their endurance is usually within 20-30 minutes, and the flight speed is slow. It is inefficient to carry out large-area aerial photography.

VT01 is a product that combines the advantages of multi-rotor drones and fixed-wing drones. It can take off and land vertically in multi-rotor mode, and can switch to fixed-wing cruise mode during the flight phase. Coupled with the design of the tilting rotor, it can reduce unnecessary structural weight and further enhance the flight range of the aircraft.

The supporting GCS ground station software is tailor-made for engineering personnel. Users do not need to undergo professional training, and only need to experience 5 minutes to quickly get started and plan the flight route of the drone.

From assembly to flight, the user does not need to adjust and inspect the whole process. The GCS software can automatically detect and analyze the current status of the drone, and can find possible problems to remind users in advance, aiming to lower the user’s threshold and increase The safety factor and user experience of the entire UAV system.

The personnel of both parties held talks on the application of the VT01 vertical take-off and landing UAV in railway and highway construction and other projects and the Internet of Things. During the meeting, the leaders of both sides exchanged many views and suggestions, placed great hopes on VT01, and the two sides reached a strategic cooperation in the development and application of drones.

On April 16, the Feiyu UAV team followed the technicians from China Railway Fourth Bureau to its Xintai-Taierzhuang (Lusujie) Highway in Linji, Shandong Province-part of the project management department of the third contract of the Xintai section, planning to use VT01 The 15km section of the road is being built.

From 14:00 to 18:30 in the afternoon, it lasted 4 and a half hours. There were 4 sorties on the 4 routes. The total flight mileage was about 259km, and the shooting area was about 15km. The aviation mission of the industry was successfully completed.

The high-precision, high-efficiency, low-cost, and low-threshold detection scheme composed of VT01 and supporting GCS has been recognized by the Fourth Bureau of China Railway. It will be applied to highway construction monitoring and other aspects, saving time and effort, and making the industry more intelligent and efficient . The future is the era of artificial intelligence. UAVs have demonstrated outstanding capabilities in surveying and mapping, disaster area detection, high-voltage cables, and agricultural and forestry inspections. They have a wide range of applications. Feiyu UAVs will also continue to provide more Efficient detection scheme.
