FLARES 2.

0 Demonstrates High DA Power Margin

Flight test data indicates that Hood Tech’s Flying Launch and Recovery System (FLARES 2.0)
multicopter used only 58% throttle at 9600ft density altitude. “FLARES achieves robustness by
using generously-sized components, and redundancy,” states Hood Tech President, Dr. Andy von
Flotow. “UAVs that carry their VTOL-stuff for the entire mission invariably skimp on VTOL
component sizing, sacrificing redundancy, power margin and high/hot capability.”

Anthony Lakes, OR, June 19, 2019 --(PR.com)-- Flight test data indicate that Hood Tech's Flying
Launch and Recovery System (FLARES 2.0) multicopter used only 58% throttle at 9600 ft. density
altitude.

The photo shows the FLARES 2.0 Multicopter carrying an 85 lb. aircraft above the Anthony Lakes Ski
Resort in June 2019 (7,100 ft. elevation, 65F, 9,600 ft. density altitude.)

“FLARES achieves robustness by using generously-sized components, and redundancy,” states Hood
Tech President, Dr. Andy von Flotow. “UAVs that carry their VTOL-stuff for the entire mission
invariably skimp on VTOL component sizing, sacrificing redundancy, power margin and high/hot
capability.”

In February 2019 FLARES was upgraded to FLARES 2.0. To date, FLARES 2.0 configuration has a
perfect record through 50 flights.

FLARES 2.0 is now ready to provide VTOL to any fixed-wing aircraft up to 100 pounds at sea level, and
up to 85 pounds at 8,000 ft. DA.
