Kestrel Posted October 30, 2005 Share Posted October 30, 2005 Here is some info on the Kestrel Aerospace PAV system in development in the UK. www.kestrelaerospace.com The systems use four lightweight, high performance brushless motors driving four 8 bladed fans. The motors weigh as little as 6kg each and have over 90% efficiency. Built inside the airframe are two high performance engines which belt drive two alternators each. The alternators are linked to a reserve battery pack and capacitor which boosts power for take-off and landing. The systems are all fitted with a BRS system and collision avoidance avionics as standard. The first scheduled display of the systems are due at Farnborough 2006 next summer. Hope this helps....
