A WingLoong-2H UAV participates in a disaster relief exercise. It's used for disaster zone survey as well as emergency communication/coordination. It provides real-time data to the emergency management command center.
Anybody knows the payload of the CH-5? Seems like estimates vary very wildly, from 480kg to 900kg to 1200kg
Endurance estimate also goes from 20 hours to 35 hours to 60 hours
That's weird, the CH-5 with a MTOW of 3300kg has a 1000kg payload while the WingLoong2 with a MTOW of 4200kg only has a payload of 480kgClarification on the flight time is explained at 2:27. 60 hours is with light payload. 40 hours for normal operation.
At 5:00, it is mentioned that 480kg payload is for CAIG Wing Loong II.
Or an extremely high fuel fraction. It seems it can fly at 370 km for 32 hours at a full load of 480 kg.That's weird, the CH-5 with a MTOW of 3300kg has a 1000kg payload while the WingLoong2 with a MTOW of 4200kg only has a payload of 480kg
Either something is wrong or the Wing Loong 2 has a really weak engine
