Hybrid Cargo Drone First prototype (15kg max weight at take-off)

After a few months of work, the first prototype is ready. In the video, we show some moments of construction and testing.

The propulsion system worked better than we expected, now we are focusing on a new generator that will allow staying in the air with 150 grams of fuel per hour (that's awesome if you think the weight at take-off is 5 kg).

The new frame will have a diagonal of one meter, so we will be able to use new motors with a thrust capability of 30 kg.

We saw that the market is really interested in the type of aircraft we are developing, that give us great expectations for the commercialization stage.

Nice project.

Watching your video, I got scared of the huge apparent vibrations level on your Pixhawk that is barely isolated. Have you checked your vibes log ? Better do it before you become victim of a flyaway....
