Q4E Drone
Q4E Drone - Overview

The Q4E drone is the latest UAV made by Mavtech. It satifies the needs for a robust, simple, flexible, modular and portable flying platform. All adjectives that fully reflect the Q4E drone's qualities. The autopilot is the Pixhawk 2 powerful and reliable flight controller, which gives you the widest configuration options and the most advanced controls for stand-alone flying and piloting assistance (optionally, it is possible to install the GPS RTK navigation system). The propulsion system is the well-known and proven DJI E800, efficient and reliable. The battery is housed inside a sliding case that is inserted into the center of the main frame. In this way the UAV balance is always optimal and the layout is clean and tidy. This solution allows to mount any 6s battery that meets the minimum continuous discharge requirement of 1300 W. The battery connector incorporates a spark protection circuit for maximum safety and longevity.

The Q4E drone is the ideal flying platform for photogrammetry performed with a visible and/or multispectral sensor, for search and rescue operations, and in general in all those professional applications that require a precise and reliable navigation system. It is also a proper flying platform for research and development purposes, where it is mandatory to easily access and re-configure the autopilot. For example, Q4E drone is the ideal solution for those who need to develop unconventional navigation systems based on pixhawk / px4, providing a stable, ready-to-fly flying platform.

In short, the key features of the Q4E drone are:

  •     Simple and modular structure
  •     Flexible configuration
  •     Great availability of accessories
  •     Tool-free quick-release landing gear
  •     Maximum payload hook-up flexibility
  •     Universal Battery Tray (Allows you to mount any 6s battery that meets the minimum discharge requirements)
  •     Availability of non-standard long-life batteries
  •     Reliable propulsion system
  •     Compatible with any existing radio system
  •     Flight Controller Pixhawk 2
  •     System RTK-Ready

Q4E Drone - Sensors

The Q4E drone is capable to carry on board a widespread of sensors, thanks to its high flexibility. The endurance of the aircraft should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, according to the Payload / Batteries ratio. We provide feasible flight time for each configuration, but only if recommended batteries are used. Some sensors have already been tested during the development of the Q4E, for which nadiral installation kits are already available, for example:

Other sensors that can be installed in the nadiral position are:

For other sensors or non-nadir installations (i. e. on gimbals), custom or COTS solutions will be evaluated, depending on the specific application.

Single Case Solution Available

The Q4E drone can be folded in our rugged custom cases. You can choose between a case that includes Q4E, all accessories and radiocontroller or a smaller one, to inlcude only the Q4E drone with accessories. All our cases are waterpoof and suitable for transportation: the internal foam ensures maximum equipment protection. Choosing smaller cases leads to easier transportation: two cases can be ordered, one for the Q4E and one for the radiocontroller.
