The Chaparral is a Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aerial cargo platform. The first version of the Chaparral will carry 300–500lbs of cargo over a 300-mile range with its hybrid-electric powertrain and simple, redundant lift and forward-flight motors.
The Chaparral is the first end-to-end autonomous VTOL cargo delivery system. It is designed for aerial transport of up to 500 lbs (225 kgs) of goods over a 300 nautical mile range. This is enabled initially by a turbine-based hybrid-electric powertrain with distributed electrical propulsion, and specially designed aerodynamic modular cargo pods.
