CycloTech Starts Outdoor Flying
After comprehensive indoor preparation, bench and flight testing Cyclo Tech took the latest version of its technology demonstrator “Bumblebee2.0” to the skies. It features 4 CR42 CycloRotors and an enhanced flight control system.
The start of the outdoor flight campaign marked another major milestone in the CYCLOROTOR development – aiming at a type certification for this new aviation propulsion system.
The operations at a general aviation airport in Austria follow the strict EASA regulations under the UAS operational authorization for the “specific” category.
For the upcoming months demonstrations of the unique capabilities of the 360° thrust vectoring CycloRotors and the systematic expansion of the flight envelope are planned.
