QLEX Creo - Die effizienteste Drohne der Welt
Infografik - Creo is flexible like a multikopter.

Flexible like a multikopter

The QLEX Creo can take-off and land like a helicopter. You can fly missions in any environment. There is no need for a runway or a parachute.

The main performance gain is due to the innovative design of the propulsion system. The UAV was uncompromisingly designed for winged flight. With this approach, we were able to take further performance improving steps almost like a domino effect. Moreover, many aerodynamic details and an affection for light weight design helped to reach this outstanding performance.
In many fields of development (aerodynamics, structure, propulsion, electronics and battery), we were able to get close to the optimum. With persistency and a little luck, we were able to form an outstanding team of industry experts.
The Creo Utility is designed for more robust conditions with a conservative energy management. The operating conditions are wider spread. The Creo Performance still needs further development in regards of energy management and operating conditions.
The propellers will not be as robust but have a lower noise emission and higher performance. A later upgrade from Utility to Performance is probably available.
Almost every manned airplane and most unmanned airplanes are manufactured in a sandwich design. The layup is usually carbon fiber – light foam – carbon fiber. Especially with small aircrafts, the structure can easily be damaged during ground handling or landing. The surface easily gets minor dents or even small holes.
The hard shell from carbon and Kevlar fibers is slightly heavier but in total so much better. Even when applying high pressure the shell deforms reversible and sharp objects cannot easily damage the structure.
The QLEX Creo is designed for universal payloads. Primarily for cameras like the MicaSense multispectral sensors for agricultural use or a Sony Alpha for photogrammetric mapping. Therefore, the system is mainly for systematic image capturing of areas or networks.
Applications ca me precision farming, inspection and geology. In the end, you will probably know best how to use the outstanding performance of our VTOL drone. Transmission of live images is in an early stage of development and will be available in the future.
Yes, missions are programmable and will be executed autonomiusly. A mission simulation will be available.
The Creo is currently in a prototype stadium. Reliability, technical availability and the performance are challenges for all technical components. In 2018, we will start a closed industry beta program with 10 to 20 UAVs.
We are looking for customers to form a close partnership to improve the product for serial production. According to the needs of our customers. We will most probably grant these customers preemptive rights for serial production.
The Creo will be available for customary market prices. The customers of the industry beta program will probably get an unlimited version.
In serial production, there will be different performance levels with corresponding prices. An upgrade will be possible at any time.
It possible but hover flight is mainly for take-off and landing. Depending on the mission requirements, it might be necessary to change some components and can cause a loss of performance.
It is worth to mention that for hovering the energy needed is 10-20 times higher than for horizontal, wing bound flight.
The UAV has very stable flight characteristics and was flown in different conditions. Wind speeds up to 30 km/h should not be a problem.
A detailed specification of operating conditions will be determined during the industry beta program.
