A novel hybrid UAV U-Lion that may change the way people operate drones

Eureka Bird Two PhD students from the National University of Singapore, Unmanned System Research Group, spent four years in developing the novel hybrid unmanned aerial vehicles(UAV), U-Lion. U-Lion is a hybrid UAV which can take-off and land vertically like helicopter UAVs, and transit to cruise flight like normal aeroplanes. The wings can be fully retracted or extended, to favour the stability in VTOL mode or provide efficient lift in cruise […]
