R5 – Safety
The R5 has three main safety features: total redundancy, it minimises impact from operator errors and is mechanically robust.
All critical system components are redundant. This means that even if any individual sensor, autopilot, battery, motor, propeller or any other component fails or has an error, the R5 is still able to fly and land safely.
Flight Management System
An advanced Flight Management System constantly monitors all system parameters and informs the operator of any errors. If the operator does not adequately react to the error, the R5 can safely land itself without any operator intervention.
Mechanical design of the R5 also minimises the potential damage if operator error were to cause a collision with any foreign object. In case of low velocity impact, the R5 will only move back a little and hover on the spot. It will wait there for new operator input without any damage to itself or its surroundings.
Our service centre can also monitor and update the operation of all electronic systems via a wireless service link. This enables us to detect, diagnose and repair potential problems before they become major issues and while the R5 is still at the customer location.
