Drones can come in many different shapes and sizes. Aerones is working on a device that is fit for heavy-duty tasks. In fact, their latest drone can carry about 100 kilograms of weight, which is quite a step up compared to their offerings. This also makes it quite a powerful tool for thrill seekers around the world.
Aerones Drones Are Not Your Average Toy
When looking at the products offered by Aerones, it becomes evident rather quickly this company is taking things to a whole new level. There is nothing fancy about their heavy-duty drones, yet they are built to be functional first and foremost. In fact, the Latvian company prides itself upon the fact their drones can carry up to 100 kilograms of weight without too many problems.
Some people may recall the Aerones name, as the company has made some media headlines over the past few months. One of their drones successfully towed a snowboard, a feat that was well received by the general public. It also goes to show drones can be used for a wide range of purposes, including those where a lot of weight needs to be moved around in a frictionless manner.
As one would expect from such a powerful drone, it features 28 motors. That is quite a lot, although they are all needed if someone were to latch their weight onto the drone to be moved around. A new video has surfaced in which the drone picks up a skydiver off of a tall building before flying it to a new height. At that point, the skydiver lets go and safely lands on the ground.
Rest assured such a venture is not something the average person on the street will undertake anytime soon. Then again, this successful test shows the Latvian company is on the right track to make their heavy-duty drones become a part of everyday occurrences at some point. It is also worth noting these drones are quite large in size, which is to be expected considering it takes 28 motors to lift 100 kg.
It remains to be seen how this technology will be used moving forward. It is not hard to picture some use cases for such a powerful drone, albeit there will always be some security risks one needs to take into account. More research is needed to ensure no major mishaps will happen anytime soon. Then again, it is hard to make a failsafe product, especially one that lifts objects – and potentially, people – into the air.
Some use cases for this Aerones drone include droneboarding, skydiving, and any other thrill seeking sport most people would rather stay away from. Anyone looking for an adrenaline fix – and the budget to buy such a machine – can benefit from this powerful drone for sure. It is expected drones like these can make an impact in rescue operations in the future as well.
