microdrones md4-200:
THE PERFECT TAKE-OFF INTO THE WORLD OF UAVS

The microdrones md4-200 aerial vehicle is a miniaturised VTOL aircraft (Vertical Take Off and Landing). It can fly by remote control or  automatically using our GPS Waypoint navigation software.

The md4-200 aerial vehicle consists of a carbon fibre body, boasts a flying time of 30 minutes and can carry a load of up to 200 g. Rain, snow and dust pose no particular problem for microdrones aerial vehicles.

The ultra-lightweight robust and weather–resistant carbon fibre body enables the md4-200 to reach an operating height of up to 1000 metres.

AT A GLANCE

md4-200: FOR A QUICK, COST-EFFICIENT START

The smallest aerial vehicle in the microdrones family: the md4-200.
Its patented design and new motor technology make for increased power and thus even more potential applications.

md4-200 IS A
UAV VEHICLE

»If you need a rapid overview of a situation, the md4-200 is the microdrone for you. It is the perfect tool for anyone seeking uncomplicated and timely data from the air. A fireman bet me once that he’d be up quicker with his ladder ... I won!« (Sven Juerss, CEO)

Thanks to its unique AAHRS (Attitude, Height und Heading Reference System) even completely novice pilots can learn to fly within a very short time. Generally a beginner is in a position to control our aerial vehicles with less than an hour’s training.


UP TO 30 MINUTES
FLYING TIME

The md4-200 aerial vehicle can be deployed anywhere where human observers struggle to get a complete overview of a situation. It boasts a tough weather-resistant carbon fibre body and impresses with a flying time of up to 30 minutes.

Thanks to its low weight of under 1kg and a possible load of up to 200 g the application–specific microdrones md4-200 is tailor-made for the demands of public authority applications. The four brushless motors result in minimal noise (less than 68 dBA, hovering at distance of 3 m) and maximum efficiency.

        30 MINUTES FLYING TIME

        4S LiPo for more endurance

        In addition to our special carbon fibre housing, the md4-200 receives top marks for its flying time. microdrones is committed to continually perfecting weight in relation to the entire system.

        Our Research and Development department is working constantly on the next generation of battery cells and the latest technologies so as to continually deliver added value to our customers. Ultimately it is our customers who benefit from the constantly increasing flying times. 

        microdrones recommends:

        • Keep the battery warm for as long as possible as cold damages a battery.
        • Always fit the batteries in »balancing mode« to ensure the cells are charged equally, thus protecting them.
        • Also, charge the batteries at low power. This also protects the cells and increases their service life considerably.

        md4-200:
        SMALL, BUT TOUGH

        Thanks to the carbon fibre housing, the specially developed motors and the highly efficient batteries, it is possible to deploy the md4-200 UAV even in strong winds, rain and snow. Furthermore, the structural parts and electronics can withstand very high temperatures, meaning the drone can be used even at critical temperatures. The electronics are extremely insensitive to high voltage and strong magnetic fields.

        • Temperature: -10 bis 50°C
        • Humidity: max 90%
        • Wind susceptibility: vibration-free images up to 4m/s
        • Flight range: min. 500m with remote control, with up to 6km flying altitude: up to 1000m
        • Take-off altitude: up to 4000m NN (WGS84)
