Aircraft Features

The FlightWave Edge UAS is a hybrid tricopter fixed-wing aircraft system that:

  • Takes off and lands from anywhere, seamlessly transitioning from VTOL to horizontal flight
  • Requires no nets, catapults, or other cumbersome ground equipment to operate
  • Enables quick, tool-free assembly, and payload swapping to get you from packed to flying in a few minutes
  • Lets you easily automate your flight with a large, bright touch-screen controller so you can focus on your mission
  • Allows you to actively pilot the drone with an interactive joystick as if you were in the cockpit

Customizable Payloads

The Edge™ is highly customizable, so you can tailor it to suit different missions with a variety of payloads. It’s high wind rejection and weatherproof resilience empowers you to fly your mission come rain or shine, through stiff wind, and in fast-changing conditions.

The FlightWave Edge™ UAS keeps your budget low while launching your capabilities to new heights. Comparable aircraft systems cost thousands more than the highly affordable Edge™.
