Drone startup debuts with quadcopter that can fly for 2 hours

September 12, 2018 // By Nick Flaherty
A Californian-based startup has emerged from stealth with a drone that integrates battery cells throughout its structure to provide a flight time of up to 2hrs.

Impossible Aerospace's US-1 drone measures 660 mm x 660 mm (26” x 26”) and acheives the longer flight time by integating the battery cells throughout the struts and body of the 7kg craft. 

The drone has a top speed of up to 19 m/s (42 mph) and range of 75 km with a payload of up to 1.3 kg (2.9 lbs) such as the Flir Duo Pro R combined thermal and visual camera, but this reduces the flight time to a maximum of 78 minutes.

It uses the Px4 autopilot and can charge in under one hour. An encrypted Video Link uses AES-128 with a video latency of 1-2ms for 1080 full HD video at 60 frame/s.
