Just wanted to introduce a new drone with 1 hour flight time: https://turncircles.com/products/drones-quadcopter-TC411
If you want to share some technical details please do. I'm very curious :)
Ok I understand :)
The 58 minute flight is interesting. Post the video
Maybe Kaan has access to Li-S Batteries?
@Haydar, unfortunately not. I've waited with big hopes but it never came commercially available from my sources. Not only because of their high power-to-weight ratio; but also because of the safety features...
This is currently my favorite: http://kokam.com/ but too expensive...
@Marc, the video became my raison d'etre :) It will come...
Is the video still coming, I figured it was a simple upload. Also is the landing gear mounted on a gimbal like the Aergion?
Once I make the video I will upload it on our youtube channel. I will keep you informed.
Aergion is pretty nice! Similar 3 leg design is what my partner is for. I, on the other hand, prefer Yuneec Q500 style.
Gimbal fixes the landing gear. You can get an idea here: http://www.drone-berlin.de/gallery_slide/p32.jpg
What you see below is the socket connection. Then comes the landing gear and you can attach the gimbal that at the same time fixes the landing gear...
From everyone's frame of experience with currently available motor and battery tech..claims of 1 hour durations will always come across as fairy tales. Now the fact that this company is developing Halbach Array motors ...that is an entirely different beast and could very well change what we all think a 1 hr duration quad is supposed to look like as this type of motor blows away conventional brushless designs as far as energy density and efficiency goes.
I for one am eager to see what a Halbach style multirotor motor can do!
just for everyone who missed this on their website
and some interesting info regarding Halbach Array motors
I'm still looking forward to her video
