The British will develop a UAV with edible body

Unmanned aerial vehicles are considered the best tool for search and rescue operations. These machines help professionals in search and rescue disaster and man-made disasters, exploration, and assess the extent of damage.

The new device, called Pouncer, will be equipped with compact circuit-controller, a battery, an electric motor with a pusher propeller and drives the elevons. The elements of the design is set in a wooden case with 17 grooves for dry rations.

The startup intends to release the drone in three variants. The miniature device is designed to carry 20 pounds of food, medium — 50 pounds, large — 100 pounds. Their range will be 35 miles, a wingspan of 2.7 meters. Pouncer will start with transport aircraft.

After the start of serial production of drones, the company will develop a version with edible casing. The frame of the first prototype will be portable and will allow you to use it, for example, for a bonfire, while promising devices, excluding electrical components, will be made of freeze-dried pressed vegetables.
