When you think of India, what comes to your mind? Second most populous country? economic crisis? Underdeveloped medical technology? riot? But no matter how you look at India, the country's economy and science and technology are booming, and many drone companies are contributing to the country's progress with drone technology, especially fixed wing hybrid vtol drone technology.

An Indian drone company called Tech Eagle is using their fixed wing hybrid vtol drone-Vertiplane X3 to deliver vaccines to a remote village in the subtropical forests of Te Himachal Pradesh and Meghalaya.

Tech Eagle owner Vikram Singh Meena, 24, said in an interview: “The Vertiplane X3 has the capabilities of a helicopter and a fixed-wing aircraft. It can take off and land a drone even in harsh conditions because it does not require track."

The Vertiplane X3 fixed wing hybrid vtol drone is programmed to follow a predetermined flight path and it can fly fully autonomously. The effective flight range is 100 kilometers and the top speed is 120 kilometers per hour. Currently, the Vertiplane X3 has a payload capacity of 3 kilograms.

Vikram said: “The remote villages in the subtropical forests of Te Himachal Pradesh and Meghalaya are 140 kilometers from the nearest hospital. There are many venomous snakes in the forest, and I have seen people getting bitten by snakes because they didn’t get anti-venom in time. death. So our original intention is to use drones to quickly deliver medicines to medical facilities in remote areas to save lives.”
