Caihong 5

China is quickly rising to be a major supplier of UAVs with strike capability. China has sold 181 drones to 13 countries over the period 2008-2018, three-quarters of them being strike-capable. In the same period, the Wing Loong series, and the popular Caihong series, accounted for 35.4% and 53.6%, respectively.

It can fly at an altitude of 9,000 meters, compared with the 7,200-meter range of the gasoline-powered piston-engine variant. The heavy fuel engine also reduces fuel consumption by about 20%, making it more cost-effective to operate. China's Caihong 5, the most powerful drone, is now available.

While the Wing Loong 1E drone is smaller than its predecessor it is expected to last longer due to composite materials used and better aerodynamics. The new drone is expected have a greater range, endurance and efficiency.

Wing Loong II

A Chinese UAV named the Wing Loong II is rumored to be a contender to replace the MQ-1 Predator in the Middle East. According to the company this country expressed interest recently in purchasing 300 unmanned planes. Saudi Arabia and Pakistan were also mentioned as interested, with Pakistan agreeing to jointly manufacture 48 units of the Chinese drone.

How To

Repairing A Damaged Drone Motor

It is important to first identify which motor part is damaged before you can repair it. The best way to do so is to take the propeller off the motor shaft. You should then remove the wires that are attached to the motor, and examine the inner workings. If you see something wrong, then you know what part of the motor you have to fix.

If the motor is in good condition, you shouldn't worry. But if it looks like one of the images below, you will need to replace parts before you can fly again.

Suppose a motor has been bent up so it won't turn anymore. This means that you will need to bend the motor back into shape. You could use a vice grip or a pair of pliers to hold the motor while bending it back into shape. After this is done, you should inspect the motor carefully for any signs or wear.

Once you are satisfied with everything, mount the propeller on the motor shaft. Reattach the wires. Now you are ready to fly your drone!
