The V2 points at the two possibilities of flying, either like a plane or like a helicopter, following the need at the takeoff and/or landing spots. The UAS length is 2,70 meters, for a 3,70-meter wingspan. It weighs less than 25 kg, not comprising its maximum payload of 15 kg. The cruising speed is set at 100 km/h but the top speed can reach 140 km/h. The Zarek V2’s autonomy can reach 8 hours, depending on the wind and other weather conditions. It can fly at a maximum altitude of 3,500 meters.

The portable control station is powered with batteries and the communications between it and the UAS are encrypted. The system operation is easy to learn.
