Drone units report for carrying the heaviest cargo ever

Drone sets record for carrying the heaviest cargo ever

A workforce of engineers from the College of Oslo just lately set a Guinness world document by lifting a sixty one kilogram load with nothing however distant-managed drones. Or somewhat, one gigantic Voltron-esque multi-rotor monstrosity appropriately named the Megakopter. It is constructed from eight hexacopters which were daisy chained collectively, makes use of thirteen rotors powered by 4 dozen particular person motors mounted on an aluminum-plywood body. With it, the staff just lately hoisted a sixty one-kilogram load — that is somewhat over 134 kilos — and held it there for 37 seconds to earn a spot within the Guinness Ebook of World Data.

The group hopes to make future iterations of the the Megacopter even stronger — probably burly sufficient to carry giant packages and even individuals (climate allowing). Seems like the Ehang 184 goes to have competitors prior to we thought.
