"Hi Rob,  Yes, probably 5m/s (default waypoint speed), propellers of this unit are 25", empty weight is about 12kg. it is weighty airframe and our experience is that it get speed very easily, at 20m/s we see not too much pitch angle. About…"

"Cool to see.  What's the maximum flight speed going to be like?  That looked about 5 m/s?  So the basic vehicle weight is 15kg?  What size props is it using, 29"? The noise levels are going to be one of those things...…"

"this airframe weight!, in this test probably about 15kg. this small and powerful engines need revving above 10000rpm to get some power. but this engine are not revving near maximum and not at maximum throttle. one of the next tests will be a test of…"

"What engine are you using? 20-26cc? sounds smaller and pretty lean... and already at high rpm with no payload... "

"Hi Jose, Getting a gas / generator to work efficiently enough to power an electric quadcopter is a great accomplishment. The losses in the power train (engine and generator) are very hard to get to the point where this pays off. Apparently you have…"

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!

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 45 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…

Huge quadcopters can be attractive alternative to fixed wing for mapping and survey

Posted on August 18, 2014 at 1:00pm 60 Comments

The sUAS market for surveying applications are dominated by fixed-wing aircraft instead of multicopters. The reason is obvious, the multicopters have very short flight time and can not run long flight…
