In the past few months, we have covered plenty of stories about Volocopter’s VoloDrone. This is a fully electric drone that can carry up to 200kg of load over a 40km range. It measures 9.15 meters in diameter, standing 2.15 meters tall. According to the company, this drone recently conducted its first public flight at ITS World Congress 2021:
The 3-minute test flight took off at 3:02 p.m at homePORT Hamburg and reached a maximum altitude of 22 meters. For this delivery simulation, the electric heavy-lift utility drone was equipped with a load-box in between its landing gear. First, the demonstration teams secured a Euro-pallet sized load to the box under the VoloDrone, followed by a smooth take-off. After this, the aircraft brought the payload to a DB Schenker Cargo Bike and landed safely
