Last month, Noida-based EndureAir Systems conducted a demanding month-long series of high-altitude tests for our Sabal 20 UAV. Team, led by Mohit Kaushik, a UAV test pilot and systems engineer, ventured to Karu-Leh (3500m AMSL) and Chang La (5360m AMSL) to push the Sabal 20 to its limits.

The tests subjected the Sabal 20 to a rigorous gauntlet of conditions. From extreme temperature fluctuations and varying airspeeds to significant air density changes and diverse load capacities, we gathered a wealth of data that will be crucial for further product refinement.

Kaushik said that as the UAV test pilot,” I faced the unique challenge of navigating the demanding environment. Wind gusts of up to 15 m/s made it feel like flying in a wind tunnel, requiring near-full pitch input just to maintain horizon stability. While we encountered some emergency and hard landings, the overall testing process was a success”.

Donning systems engineer hat, Kaushik was able to pinpoint areas for improvement that will ensure even greater reliability and performance in such extreme conditions. This experience has been a significant driver of personal and professional growth, and Kaushik said that he eager to see the advancements we can make based on the invaluable data collected.

The Sabal series stands out with its tandem-rotor configuration, offering enhanced stability and maneuverability. These compact drones are equipped with a unique boom rail system, allowing users to attach cargo securely. The boom rail innovation plays a pivotal role in the autonomous operation of the UAVs. Users can load cargo onto the boom rail, and the drone will autonomously fly to its designated destination, execute a precise landing, release the cargo by raising its boom rail hooks, and then return to its next point of take-off.

The heart of the Sabal series lies in its lithium battery pack, powering the electric propulsion system. The use of lithium batteries not only contributes to the drones’ environmental sustainability but also provides the necessary power for extended flight ranges. According to the company, the drones boast a cargo-carrying capacity of up to 10kg for the Sabal-10 and 20kg for the Sabal-20, making them particularly effective in high-altitude areas.
