The 2in1 Vertical Take-off Reconnaissance UAV

The next Generation


It is not only the optics that the Scorpion has in common with its animal fellow. Like the Vector it is also optimized for use in adverse conditions with extreme temperatures.

The centerpiece is identical to the fixed-wing Vector UAV housing gimbal, autopilot and data link. The larger propellers and motors of Scorpion make it a state of the art tri-copter with live video data link for various mission scenarios.

The Scorpion impresses with the same HD data link with an operating range of up to 15+ km.

As a tri-copter, it is ideal for smaller-scale and stationary use, for example in densely built-up areas. With a flight time of 35 minutes, it can cover a wide range of applications.

Coming with the built-in 2in1 ability to always convert back to the Vector UAV, the Scorpion’s core features are:


  • State of the art Tri-Copter UAV
  • 0-15 m/s cruise speed
  • Up to 35 min flight time (depends on the payload)

Thanks to QBase 3D, all mission relevant steps from planning to execution can be carried out intuitively by a single person. QBase 3D automatically generates efficient flight paths after the flight area and the mission parameters have been defined with a few clicks. It is also possible to launch Vector or Scorpion without having planned a mission beforehand in order to be operational quickly.

Our self-developed software allows you to dynamically adjust the mission in flight to mark targets on the map or in video before, during or after the mission, to show or detect critical points.

QBase 3D records the full mission on the GCS (including video and aircraft data) and replays it at any time, while recording is continued. The software supports the operator with warnings when the aircraft is about to exceed its limits. Overwriting them is always possible if the mission requires it – Just fly.


The included ground control station (GCS) is a high-performance x86 based PC in a rugged case with haptic control elements and touch screen functionality.

The display is anti-reflective and guarantees optimum sharpness of detail even under the most adverse lighting conditions. Thanks to a resistive screen, interaction in rain or with gloves is possible.


In order to provide relevant intelligence for better decision making, we integrate high-value sensors with powerful optics while keeping size and weight at a minimum. The result is state-of-the-art stability combined with unmatched robustness.

Thanks to its modular concept, the front section of Vector & Scorpion can be equipped with different payloads.
