A ducted fan core for an unmanned aerial vehicle is provided that accommodates a wide variety of payloads. The ducted fan core comprises a frame, attached to which are an engine, gearbox assembly, fan, and a plurality of control vanes. A first surface on the frame comprises a plurality of connects or electrical traces. The plurality of connects are used to removably attach a variety of pods carrying various payloads. Thus, a wide variety of payloads may be delivered using the same unmanned aerial vehicle, simply by removing and attaching different pods t...


1. A system comprising: a frame including a first surface;an engine mounted to the frame;a plurality of control vanes mounted to the frame;a duct portion attached to the frame;a fan mounted within the duct portion; andat least one removable payload pod, wherein the at least one removable payload pod attaches to the frame via a plurality of connects included on the first surface and is arranged radially outward from the fan, and the at least one removable payload pod comprises an outer shell having a leading edge and an interior facing side shaped so that...
