The elfin is an autonomous self-launcher with a propulsion system driven by electric power and the option of a hybrid propulsion system in case the pure electric doesn’t provide enough range or the infrastructure is not yet sufficient to operate a pure electric aircraft.
Besides the propulsion system the most outstanding design elements are the fully retractable 3 blade propeller in the elfin’s nose and the comfortable ergonomic side-by-side cockpit with the huge canopy for a stunning view.
Please explore all the extraordinary special special features of this aircraft on the elfin.aero website.
An aircraft on the basis of the sports aircraft elfin with good but limited capability for sensor payload and operation range. MTOM 1,000kg, one or two crew operation.
An aircraft with higher payload and range, 5-blade propeller. MTOM 1,200kg, one or two crew operation.
A platform on the basis of the RS.120, optionally piloted / with remote control system and thus with even higher range for unmanned missions
All aircraft / platform of this family will be equipped with a ballistic rescue system.
Typical mission equipment for the RS.100 series are EO / IR sensors, SAR / SLAR, LiDAR, hyperspectral sensors, and of course the common data downlinks LoS and bLoS.
Please contact us for further details:
There will be a choice of various propulsion systems, starting from 2 x 500 hp RED piston engines via a turboprop single engine to a set of two jet engines.
A remote control system will make the RS.500 an optional piloted platform. The payload for mission equipment will be up to 1,000 kg and the arrangement will be highly adaptable to the customers needs.
Another version will be a small regional passenger aircraft for up to medium distances, probably mainly serving within the business charter business for up to 8 pax.
The RS.500 series is planned to be equipped asap with the sustainable propulsion systems, first capable for PtL, and later on for hydrogen fuel cell power.
