First adaptation of worlds smallest heavy fuel electronic fuel injection fixed wing motor to a 55 lb. single Rotor Helicopter. Designed for an endurance of 6 hours and altitudes of 8,000 feet with remote package delivery capabilities.
Market explosion of multi rotor helicopters primarily dominated by Chinese company DJI. FHS procured these systems, tested their endurance and capability in industrial applications and found them insufficient in meeting real time everyday requirements while representing a security risk to our Customers.
Integration with the enterprise drone software and sensor solution companies began in Q1 of 2020; FHS is currently developing the systems and control processes necessary to fully implement the next generation UAS for robust commercial and professional applications. We are working with commercial software partners to integrate with future products, in order to further provide value to our end users.
3Q 2021 Launch of the FH-900 Series Electric Fully Autonomous Helicopter with long endurance, easy to deploy and fly, safe operations BLOS, extreme heavy lift capability versatile. This product will be the standard for generations to come in drone technology, paving the way for expanded enterprise missions and agricultural applications. The FH-900 Series will enable rapid integration of any customer payload with unparalleled video and zoom surveillance. Previously restricted under FAA rules & regulations, package delivery and fully autonomous operations will be achieved under applicable FAA waiver requirements. FHS has made the strategic decision and investment to provide industry with flight services utilizing FHS’s growing fleet of sUAS assets and experienced FAA certified pilots.
