This is the communication range.Range of Rustom 1 = 200 km
Range of Byraktar TB2 = 150 km
For those countries without satellite communication support, that is maximum distance the plane can fly away from the ground control station.
No, the endurance hours of Bayraktar is 27 hours while Rutom-1 is only 12-14 hours (someone says 10 hours).Flight altitude of Rustom 1 = 20,000 ft
Flight altitude of Byraktar TB2 = 26,000 ft (?)
Payload capacity of Rustom 1 = 100 kg
Payload capacity of Byraktar TB2 = 150 kg
Number of test flight trial by Rustom 1 = 65
Number of test flight trial by Byraktar TB2 = ??
The only saving grace of Byraktar is its Rotax-912 engine which is atleast two generation ahead of Lycoming-320. But even with a twice as heavy and old engine, we have achieved the as much comparability as Byraktar.
