Tandem rotor MEDEVAC UAV
I have a hard time to understand why they use full feathering and flapping hinges on an UAS that size (small). Even Hugues did not have to wait for the composite revolutionThe DP14 is part of a U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, or USAMRMC, effort to look at alternatives to evacuating casualties in what the Army and Marine Corps calls Multidomain Battlefield, a operational concept designed to prepare the joint force to operate in the domains of land, sea, air, space and cyberspace.
Given the type of mission and nap of the earth flying they envision, a rigid rotor tech would be more appropriate. To alleviate gust, prioritize agility and flight precision IGE (think FCS coding time), the articulated rotor have proved its age...

Turkey's Bayraktar announces new High Altitude Long Endurance UAV program after its success with the armed Bayraktar TB-2.
Flight Ceiling: 40,000 feet

Not sure I agree with the "long endurance" bit there. 45 hours maybe, but not 4 hours!
