Drone units report 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.
