We all love twin-engine planes, don’t we? They look cool in the sky, sound great and satisfy that folk tale in the back of our brains (which is completely true), that “if one engine fails, we have more chances to make it home than with a single-engine aircraft”.
This is the first time that SonicModell releases a plane based on requirements from private and government organizations to the hobby community.
That’s right, Binary wasn’t born for the FPV enthusiasts, but for the people that flies every day UAVs for a living. Many of those organizations were flying several type of airframes (usually extremely large) and approached us with a list of requirements for a plane, that can not only be used for their missions, but also to train new pilots. They needed something easier to carry, fully featured, and with lower risk in case of a crash. Yes, huge, heavy birds they do their job, but in the words of some of the pro pilots: “We do a lot of our missions over urban terrain... if an 8Kg UAV will hit your head while your walking to work, your day will be ruined... Having said that, we cannot compromise performance and features. They all should be there”.
Having that in mind and for the lapse of one year, we created several prototypes, until we got the perfect balance in every area without compromises. As we’re writing this, Binary has been adopted as a quick deployment UAV by 4 different government organizations, 3 private companies (Mapping, Security survey and Sea life watch). According to their records, in total, Binary has more than 375 successful missions (with no planes lost so far), hundreds of hours of training for rookie pilots and has been proven in the hardest conditions.
