Scout B1-100

The Aeroscout Scout B1-100 is an autonomous industrial unmanned helicopter. It was developed for professional airborne applications such as aerial mapping, airborne broadcasting, search & rescue, surveillance and inspection as well as law enforcement.


The helicopter provides a payload capacity of up to 31 kg (incl. 10 l of fuel (standard), 2 kg flight control system (FCS) with an empty weight of only 44 kg (MTOW 75 kg)).


The Scout B1-100 provides easy transportability and maintainability through system modularity, flexible payload options, and a smooth and easy-to-start gasoline engine.[1]

  • Air-cooled gasoline aircraft engine with electric starter onboard
  • Easy transportability and maintainability through modularity
  • Sealed gear boxes and electronics
  • Highly reliable mechanical design
  • Integrated, autonomous flight control system FCS
  • Optional (D)GPS/INS integrated navigation system with accuracy evaluation
  • Flexible payload options
  • High maneuverability
  • Smoothly running engine and optimal vibration isolation of the payload
  • Long-term flight endurance up to 90min non-stop


The helicopter can either be flown in conventional manual mode with high maneuverability or can be operated with its integrated INS/GPS automated flight control system. This flight control system allows joystick (velocity) mode as well as waypoint (GPS) mode.
