Builder Shcherbakov: The aircraft “Dobrynya” was built on a standard solution to speed up creation.
MOSCOW, December 1 – RIA Novosti. The Dobrynya quadrocopter manufactured by the Almaz-Antey concern was built on a standard solution to accelerate its creation, chief designer Egor Shcherbakov, responsible for civil developments at the Obukhov Plant, which is part of the concern, told RIA Novosti on Thursday.
Earlier, a number of military bloggers and experts voiced their criticism of Dobrynya. Thus, it was noted that “Dobrynya” was assembled from completely foreign parts.
“The development was not based on specific models of foreign UAVs, but focused on the UAV class (sports FPV aircraft), which is made to accelerate the development and implementation of advanced developments that can be mass-produced at the enterprise. Without the use of expensive preparatory processes (casting, stamping and the like),” Shcherbakov said a related question. by answering.
He added that the standard decision on the use of a four-engine scheme was taken because it is currently the most suitable scheme for this type of UAV, and this is confirmed by practice: most of the devices of this class are produced. The world has four engines.
The designer emphasized that the main issue is that the product is now mass-produced, the drone can be purchased, it does not need to be reflashed for use in Russia.
“Dobrynya’s work does not depend on the whims of foreign companies, our UAVs cannot be remotely blocked through firmware,” said the expert.
Earlier, Shcherbakov noted that domestic components make up a significant share of the Dobrynya drone. Especially the motors, controller and drone software are Almaz-Antey’s own development.
