The R70/R80D Tether Kit enables continuous operation of the aircraft and attached payloads in support of multiple
The Tether Kit consists of a detachable harness/power converter, battery replacement modules, and interfaces with off-the-shelf ground stations (Elistair Safe-T shown). Should a loss of tether power occur, the system will warn the operator and continue to fly on internal batteries until a low-power condition triggers either an automatic descent to a safe AGL altitude, or a safe auto-land.
Highly transportable, the Tether Kit is designed for use in austere environments. The system provides aircraft power at elevations approaching 100m AGL across a range of environmental conditions and may be installed or removed from the aircraft in the field within 5 minutes.
