QX-6 is a VTOL UAV designed for the cargo delivery role. It has a massive fuselage with four short wings, two at the front and two at the rear, carrying each one three-blade rotor.A cargo bay is located under the fuselage, a pod allowing automatic delivery of the payload, both on land or at sea. QX-6 features cutting-edge autopilot and communication systems to perform missions autonomously without the need for remote control.
QX-6 has an extended payload of 150kg to enable it to deliver cargo to remote and inaccessible locations. Depending on payload configuration, the system has an endurance of up to four hours, and can be leveraged for both military and commercial applications.
