    As it is mentioned that Drone is 100% made in pakistan, it arises surprise that why pakistan lags behind in heli's . I mean drone technology is much complex. This drone looks good in aerodynamics but why is helicopter like this


    The story is not clear and dots are missing.

    this is a quite capable plat form. with a wing span of about 20 feet, weight of 200 KG its 550 cc engine is powered by gasoline and enable thes the bird to reach speeds of upto 150 Km/hr.
    the flight range is upto 350 km. it carries an all weather day night vision camera that sends optical images to ground control station for assessment.
    Uqab is piety much same as the US Shadow drones that were being offered when Pakistan asked US for assistance in this field to fight terrorism. now the US can shove the Shadow up there a55!!

    well you see UAV programs are well funded by private and government sectors compared to any helicopter program.... (basically none, PAC is not intrested in)
    that u saw was just made by engineers, more like by engineering students....
