AII components of BLACKBIRD are easily removable and completely interchangeable.
Wing splits in two 0.5 meter sections,
Assembly and fastening is tool free and all bolds and subsystems require a minimum of toolset during maintenance. Despite its fixed wingspan, the disassembled UAS features an ergonomic design in order to capture the less possible volume during transportation. ln the same concept, all components from Avionics to Payload can be individually removed for replacement, update or inspection. Carefully Chosen COTS parts, like cabling and connectors ensure ample availability in any circumstance.
