Multirotor aircraft systems for commercial & industrial applications

Vulcan UAV Ltd is a multicopter design, development and manufacturing company based in the UK specialising in unusual applications normally at the heavier lift end of the market, and we currently offer some of the toughest and most durable industrial multi-rotor UAV solutions in the world.

Our products range from ‘off the shelf’ airframes and related products to complete aircraft systems, with most of our work involving the design and production of custom and fully bespoke solutions. Unlike other companies we do not produce fixed products and offer them to market in the hope they are suitable, but instead specify and optimise systems to best suit the specific application and requirements of the customer. This can range from minor customisation of an existing platform to a fully bespoke ‘ground up’ development. If you need an ‘outside the box’ solution, we’re the company to talk to.

As a company we have a history going back to well before the commercial UAV and drone industry existed in any real form (over 20 years), and can genuinely claim to have been at the forefront of the industry from the very beginning. With this level of experience, and with all our design, development, manufacturing and testing done ‘in house’, we are able to offer a highly flexible, fast and agile response to our customers, with solutions based on knowledge gained from long experience. When you come to us you get the truth, not sales talk!

Some of our projects include:

  •  Lidar mapping
  • Thermal imaging
  • Gas sensing
  • Tree planting
  • Bird scaring
  • Surveying
  • Structural Inspection
  • Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
  •  Magnetic surveying
  • Crop spraying
  • Search & Rescue (SAR)
  • Ship to oil rig and wind turbine delivery
  • Wire pulls
  • RF surveillance
  • Radar
  • UAV winch crane
  •  Photogrammetry
  • Anti drone aircraft
  • RFI tag reading
  • LED graphic displays
  • Structural Cleaning
  • TV game shows
  • Photography and movie making
  • And more…

Please contact us to discuss your requirements.


The D series are tough, high resilience aircraft with very flexible design and configuration options, payload capacities up to 25 Kgs and the ability to operate in a broad range of environments.

New Harrier Industrial 6 and 7 series variants with payload capacities to 15 Kgs and resistance to both wet and higher temperature environments.

The Harrier is a range of tough, highly resilient industrial aircraft variants aimed at payloads up to 15 Kgs. Fully customisable to meet specific operational criteria these are true workhorse aircraft, and the core of the Vulcan Industrial range.

Ground up custom development for ‘short hop’ deliveries up to 25 Kgs, the Airlift is tough, weather proof and folds to a compact form factor.

The Mini 8 is a small, agile and quiet aircraft with 8 motor redundancy, and at just 3.4 Kg Ready to Fly (excluding batteries and payload), this may just be the lightest X8 with good payload capacity on the market.

The Raven is a tough, highly reliable and well proven platform ideal for heavy and expensive cameras, used by many top aerial film makers around the world.


Tough and reliable medium lift folding X8 aircraft, ideal for aerial photography, surveying and inspection.


Alongside our custom aircraft we are able to offer development and manufacture of custom payloads to meet the ever expanding requirements of the UAV industry.

Custom Aircraft

Whilst our standard aircraft designs cater for some applications, to optimise performance for something specific, a different solution is often required. This may simply involve adapting one of our frames for a particular payload or sensor, but can also involve an entirely bespoke system. We can help!
