What's Special About New Modification of Russian Budget 'Privet-82' Drone?
"The drone got a new ground station, which, first of all, is autonomous, more convenient to use and allows, in particular, to operate the drone from behind cover. For instance, all the antennas and repeaters can be placed on the roof of a five-story building, while operators stay safe in the basement and control the drone’s operation from there," he explained.
Rolling Back Prices
“From the start, when we were developing the Privet-82, we set ourselves the task that the drone should use exclusively civilian production technologies. All of the components of our product can be obtained in any large city by civilian contractors… Civilian companies produce components for us. There are a lot of them. Therefore, the price is accordingly very low. Also, we do not use any specialized electronics, but generally available consumer electronic [parts], which also greatly reduces the price,” Zhernov explained.
