The 184 was designed to be a 100% with green technology, and is powered by electricity only.

Four arms and eight propellers offer great lifting power and safety. Even with one propeller malfunctions, it can still land in the nearest possible area safely. The 184 AAV has embedded with Ehangen fail safe system. If any components malfunction or disconnect, the aircraft will immediately land in the nearest possible area to ensure safety. The communication is encrypted and each AAV has its independent key.

Ehangen 184 AAV flies in a inverted U shape. It takes off and lands vertically, point to point direct flight based on altitude and latitude of the origin and termination point. Take Off/Landing points are landing targets pre-set with Ehangen Logo. The landing camera will position the landing targets automatically and accurately.
