Developments of remote piloted vehicles (RPV) was carried out at the MAI since 1975. These RPV was intended to use for civil, military and special purposes. Eight RPV types was developed altogether including three of them which was brought to prototype and flight testing stage. Besides a remote piloted helicopter (RPH) was developed in the latter half of the nineties. The RPH named «Voron» (Raven) has 40 kg maximum take-off weight and can carry up to 18 kg payload. Design features and performances are considered for the RPH as well as for remote piloted aeroplanes “Lesnik” (Forest-guard ) with 36 kg maximum take-off weight and 12 kg payload and “Vorobey” (Sparrow) with 0.8 kg maximum take-off weight which are developing now. — informational site of MAI
