                      PENGUIN B
PENGUIN'S PHILOSOPHY
Designed as a high performance unmanned airframe, Penguin B is one
of the most capable airframes available today. With a small footprint
of 3.3 meter wingspan, Penguin B can handle up to 11.5 kg of
combined fuel and payload weight. Modular composite structure, fast
assembly, large access hatches, removable payload bay, are the key
features of the Penguin B innovative design. Available as an airframe
ready for the autopilot and payload integration.

PERFORMANCE
Sleek and efficient design gives the best in class performance. Optimized for endurance, Penguin has enough internal volume to lift 7.5 liters of fuel
which will provide 20+ hours endurance using efficient Honda 4 stroke engine. The optimized high lift flap system provides stall speeds of <13 m/s
while giving excellent flight handling qualities due to a well designed V-tail geometry.

4-servo V tail upgrade   Each tail plane control surface is split in two equal
                         sides, each having own servo (total of 4 servos for
                         tail plane). Option includes additional servos, CNC
                         machined aluminum servo mounts, modified
                         control surfaces, additional linkages and wiring.

                         This option increases reliability of the system in
                         case of a tail plane servo failure

7.5 liter fuel tank      A custom made composite fuel tank is factory
                         installed into the Penguin. Fuel tank maximizes
                         amount of fuel that can be carried in Penguin B.
                         With standard 28 cc two stroke engine endurance is
                         increased to 10+



Combined Pitot-Static    The combined Static-Pitot tube is designed to
assembly                 provide both dynamic and static pressure
                         measurements in a single package. Pitot-Static
                         tube is made of strong and light carbon fiber tubes
                         and aircraft grade aluminum for maximum rigidity.
                         System can be mounted and removed using two
                         screws for simple UAV transportation. Comes in
                         correct length an validated mounting location.

Car-top launch system   Car-top launch system is mounted on a car using
                        standard THULE rack mounts. Smart lever
                        arrangement mechanically unhooks the UAV when
                        the desired angle of attack is obtained. Angle of
                        attack is controlled by the autopilot input and the
                        takeoff procedure is the same as for autonomous
                        runway takeoff. The takeoff procedure is as follows:
                        car accelerates->desired speed is reached->
                        autopilot commands rotation using elevators->
                        airframe undergoes rotation and UAV is
                        mechanically disengaged and free to climb.
