Flying UAV were carried out in difficult weather criteria. The air temperature during the flight reached 28 degrees Celsius, which is practically denied previously held in the Russian media speculation about the "heat-loving" Israeli drones.
"This is just the case when the facts better than words — says one of the leading Russian professionals UAV, chief editor of the website UAV.RU Denis Fedutinov — that Israel — a country with a warm climate, does not in itself mean that the Israelis can not create drones that are applicable for use in Russia. "
According Fedutinova, "devices of this class are capable of doing flying at an altitude of 5-6 thousand meters, where temperatures are often negative, which means that the very first UAV allows flights at low temperatures." "Maybe some refinement of the system as a whole could be required to prepare for flight in freezing temperatures, particularly at the start. If so, they seem to have been produced successfully" — sums up the expert. Create UAV Searcher MkII ("Outpost") and Bird Eye 400 of the Israeli assembly kits in 2012 has been adjusted to belong to the "Oboronprom" UZGA enterprise in Ekaterinburg.
Recall that in March 2011 at the Air Force Base of the Russian Federation "Kubinka" was conducted showing the Israeli and Russian unmanned vehicles, planned to be used for the benefit of the Ministry of Defense. Then the Russian military management systems have been shown to Israeli mini-class Bird Eye 400 and the average radius of the acts Searcher MkII, a mini-UAV Russian production, selected based on the results of comparative tests carried out in autumn 2010. Thus, if the Russian system were put on static display only, the Israeli were also shown in action. UAV Searcher MkII then made flight lasting about 6 hours TMA "Kubinka" at altitudes of up to 5 km, transferring the image to a ground control station in real time.
