Curiosity Surveyor UAV

Curiosity is a FULLY AUTONOMOUS Mini Unmanned Multicopter aircraft. It is capable of carrying a 400 Gram payload. The payload is a Day or Night Camera mounted on a gyro stabilized camera mount. Most cameras are under 300 Grams. The UAV is electrically powered with a very low dB level. The aircraft is fully autonomous right from Takeoff to Landing. The UAV is made of composite sheet and aluminum alloy.
