RDASS 4 Rotor Video Demo
Introducing the ground
breaking HSE RDASS Q1000™ Helicopter. This revolutionary new platform
creates a single high performance helicopter airframe with the ability
to fly stabilized HD video. The patent pending design is derived from
thousands of hours of research and development and is designed
specifically for industrial use and maximum flight time with a minimum
of down time. The HSE RDASS™ is the only UAV helicopter on the market
today that has been designed from the ground up with a built in
autopilot and navigation system that allows for simple flight and easy
use for non-RC users. The system boasts the ability to be ready to fly
under 5 minutes from an iPad or wireless remote control. This allows for
the ultimate in portability and rapid deployment
