3hr 10min endurance test with HYBRiX quadrotor by Quaternium

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 ;)

Cheers for this! It looks really good Jose Luis! Thumbs up for Spanish drone startups ;)! Out of curiosity, which autopilot does Quaternium vehicles use?

Seguid así!

How to do it?

Just visited your website. The Hybrix 100 must be massive! What do you think your pricing will be like?

@Ouroboros - it is a 2 stroke engine so we use gas and oil mixture

@Víctor Mayoral - we are using Pixhawk, the pixhawk works perfectly but i need to think about this. The problem that I see is that pixhawk is not designed for this "high responsibility" aircrafts. We are thinking about starting a project with the UPV to develop a redundant scheme for pixhawk.

@armen t - for pricing contact us (info@quaternium.es). we will ship some units to few customers in 2 or 3 months.

@Ryan Watkins - hehehe, That was the original plan, but after releasing these two videos we see that the right product is in this weight and size range (i mean MTOW 20kg or so).

The potential of this vehicle is huge, currently we do not have translational flight data but we are willing to do a flight of 250 km. 

So no immediate plans and no price for a unit of 100kg !!!

Congrats Jose Luis.

If you ever come near Seville just give us a ping. It would be really great to see that "thing" fly.

Keep up with the innovation

Looking at your website your drone looks like it has brushless outrunners... Hold on,

You've got 100kg takeoff weight so 25kg+ per motor? What brand are you using?

this one with 67 inch propellers, t-motor are developing this unit for us ;P
