2 hours and 5 minutes test flight with maximum takeoff weight

Posted on November 19, 2016 at 3:00pm 32 Comments

It would probably be more spectacular a test flight of 4 hours but i was very interested in performing this test because it is very near to real use of Hybrix.20. 4 or 4.5 hours are possible for demonstration test but operational flight time is around 3 hours with light payload to 2 hours for heavy payload.

Lately many customers are telling…

Flight test of HYBRiX multicopter with a fully automatic mission using Tower APP

Posted on July 3, 2016 at 2:03pm 9 Comments


First flight tests of full automatic flight plan from take off to landing. We are using Tower. You can see the whole process on the video: flight plan generation, combustion engine start, drone arming from the tablet and mission launch.

I hope you like it!

Updates on HYBRiX multi-rotor by Quaternium

Posted on March 12, 2016 at 1:30pm 15 Comments

It's been a while since I published the last update about HYBRiX. We are very excited about how the development is evolving and more than happy with customers response.

For the past few weeks we have been working on finishing our MVP. it has a new look, new frame, more fuel tank capacity, quick…

3hr 10min endurance test with HYBRiX quadrotor by Quaternium

Posted on December 14, 2015 at 11:30am 35 Comments

I want to share our last experience with HYBRiX, a lapse time of a 3hr and 10min endurance flight test. As far as I know it is the longest flight time for a hybrid fuel-electric drone, and I have to say it is not a lab test, but the same configuration we will start selling very soon. We are really excited about this! Please comments…

Successful flight test of hybrid gas+electric VTOL UAV: HYBRiX

Posted on November 18, 2015 at 12:00pm 49 Comments

This is the crazy project that kept us busy lately at Quaternium: a hybrid electric+gas multirotor with range extender, inspired by Hybrid cars, such as BMWi3.

Our goal is to overcome the endurance limitations of an electric multicopter, while keeping the multirotor platform we are so enthusiastic about. This VTOL UAV has 2.5 hr estimated flight time with payload, and around 4 hours endurance…
