The Penguin C is Non-ITAR restricted, giving our customers easy access to its amazing capabilities. UAV Factory’s Flight Operations Team has flight tested the Penguin C for thousands of hours, to ensure its reliability and robustness from normal to very hospitable weather conditions. The design is based on a proven Penguin B platform, which has been sold to customers in over 35 countries and has demonstrated a 54.5 hour world record flight in 2012.

Penguin C is available with high performance EPSILON gyro stabilized gimbals. There is a choice of:
All gimbals come with:
No Payload Option
The Penguin C is also available for purchase with an empty payload. This will give the customer the option of integrating their own payload based on their specific project needs. For powering the payload, customers can use an on-board 6V, 12V and 24V power supply. For payload control and real-time video, customers can utilize an integrated datalink’s Ethernet and Serial pass-through with up to 12 Mbps rate.
EFI Engine with silent muffler
This state of art fuel injected gasoline engine was designed for maximum reliability and performance. Its Silent muffler system is equipped as a standard option for the lowest acoustic signature of any engine of its size in the world. The cooling system will give customers the ability to operate in sub-zero to extremely hot conditions. The engine is continuously tested on UAV Factory’s engine testing cell to maximize its reliability and efficiency.
Swappable propulsion modules
The propulsion module can be changed in minutes, allowing operation of the aircraft system while the maintenance is performed on a second module. This extremely cost efficient option, will keep your project operational at all times.
The Penguin C system comes with numerous smart features to reduce operator’s workload, reduce operator errors and improve the flight safety. Smart features include Penguin Co-pilot software with integrated checklists, emergency procedures, critical alarms with operator recommendations. The Penguin Co-pilot has an integrated decision tree which analyses aircraft parameters and automatically executes sequences of safety decisions, reducing the probability of operator - induced accidents.
Allows recovery in both challenging and unprepared sites. The parachute is packed in the deployment bag and replacement of the parachute in the field takes less than 5 minutes. The parachute will automatically disconnect from the aircraft once the aircraft touches the ground, preventing wind-dragging.
Reduced Logistical Footprint
The Penguin C system has the lowest logistical footprint in class. The catapult is man-portable and the parachute system eliminates the need for the net recovery system. Penguin C system can be transported in a minivan, while being runway independent.
The full featured operational training is a part of the Penguin C system. The 10 Day Training Program covers all aspects of operation and maintenance, site survey, launch procedures, parachute packing, pre-post flight procedures, amongst numerous other areas. And all customers are supplied with extensive user manuals. Supporting our customers after the training, at their location, is also an option.
