Advances in electric drive technology have meant that power to weight ratios and efficiencies have increased to a point where the practical implementation of an electrically driven Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) is viable. The replacement of the existing gearbox, tail-rotor assembly and tail-rotor drive shaft with electrical drives on the main and tail rotors offers many potential benefits.
