ThereCraft’s Lifting Body Drone Acrobatically Delivers Packages With Pinpoint Accuracy

The delivery drone space is getting more and more crowded, but we tend to see slightly different flavors of the same basic designs and modes of operation. There are point-to-point multirotors, hybrid point-to-point systems (like tailsitters), and fixed-wing drones that require launch and landing infrastructure. One thing that all of these drone platforms have in common is scale—the current generation of autonomous commercial delivery drones are optimized for payloads of a few kilograms, delivering high value, time sensitive payloads in low infrastructure areas. There are plenty of use cases where small drones work just fine, but once you need more than a handful of kilograms at once, commercial options are few. The military has been experimenting with glider drones and parafoil systems that can handle hundreds of kilograms, and unmanned helicopters that can manage over a thousand kilograms at once. But in most cases, aerial cargo delivery for commercial or (even Continue reading ThereCraft’s Lifting Body Drone Acrobatically Delivers Packages With Pinpoint Accuracy
