Is it a transformer? Is it a bird? No it's a vertical take-off and landing drone

Bird drone

What’s amazing is the proposal of an African start-up company to build a drone that looks and flies like a bird, or a carefully designed gag to see how many people will believe that this exciting adventure is actually in Level. Either way, the Phractyl Macrobat electric near vertical take-off and landing drone

Macrobat is different from any drone you've seen before. The aircraft stands on its legs, and the legs are like tractors that can roll during takeoff and landing. This non-optional detail is due to "almost" in the eNVTOL description of the process. During these phases, the aircraft's fuselage, wings, and tail move back toward the sky from their stationary horizontal position, allowing two propellers to lift or lower it to the ground. Since this angle is limited to avoid inserting the tail fin into the runway, the aircraft “almost” vertically lifts off by rolling slightly to gain speed.

Compared with other non-eVTOL drones, Macrobat is designed to enhance aerodynamic performance, so the rolling motion is small.

Although there is a lot of poetic information on the website, it is not completely clear what the transaction behind Phractyl is-it represents the PHRontier of agile and complex technological system evolution, but many netizens think the whole project is a gimmick

However, if the information provided by the site is only at face value—albeit a face with the tongue clamped tightly to the cheek—then it is fair to describe the startup as a unique African business by African engineering experts. , They seek to create the aircraft of the future to cope with the opportunities and constraints especially in Africa.

These involve a lot of flying space, but there is a lot of terrain that is not suitable for take-off and landing (hence the way of roosting birds). Areas with developed infrastructure often have dense ground, rail, and passenger air traffic, so Phractyl's Macrobat eNVTOL is designed to transport individual people or goods manually or remotely. It is described as capable of flying at speeds of up to 122 mph over a maximum distance of 93 miles, with a maximum load of 330 pounds.

Phractyl plans to continue to develop the eNTVOL aircraft, mainly for personal transportation, but will make it suitable for recreational flights, medical transportation, emergency services, cargo missions, infrastructure inspections, and possible crop spraying.

Whether it's a gimmick or Phractyl is really developing this aircraft, the design concept of Phractyl's bird-like drone is so novel that you can remember it after a glance.

Quadcopter drone 90 minutes endurance

Quadcopter droneFDG815 is a small size aerial platform  for mapping, surveillance and inspection. it's have a landing gear like a bird's leg, Featuring 90 minutes of flight time, IP66 rating folding frame, and multiple failsafe,  Its compact folding airframe enables easy operation and flexible maneuvering. – Forged from a combination of carbon fiber, PCB and CNC,  allowing flight mission under a wide temperature range of -10℃-55℃. – With a built-in 14S 14000mAh high voltage li-ion battery, the flight time boosts up to 90 minutes with no payload, and it still reaches 45minutes with 2.5kg payload.

– Built-in antenna shields from dust and moist.
– Self-locking propellers .
– Under circumstances when Drone is in low voltage status or loss of signal, Return to Launch failsafe will be automatically triggered to save the drone.
– Plan the flight path that can be saved for future mission on either Herelink 5.5″ inch touch screen or on MissionPlanner/PC after linking herelink with PC through WiFi / Bluetooth/USB, drone flying becomes programmable and as simple as anyone can master. Alternatively, Herelink also serves as a streaming media server that delivers video and data (WAN) among team members on their devices like an ipad, mobile phone or PC, allowing a simultaneous team participation in the mission.
