You Can Now Turn Your Drone Into A Flying Flamethrower With This $1,500 Kit

Not withstanding the fact that combining a drone and a flamethrower is a bad idea, Throwflame (the company behind the commercially available flamethrower we saw a few years ago) wants to sell you one anyways. Throwflame is not selling the entire drone, though; the company is selling you a kit that will turn your otherwise […]

Romania’s Omnidirectional Drone Looks Like A UFO And Flies Like One Too

The concept of utilizing the wing structure as the entire aircraft isn’t new. The Northrop Grumman B-2 Stealth Bomber is perhaps one of the most recognizable example and the BAE MAGMA UAV is the latest to do so. However, one that takes has on an axial symmetrical shape that has an uncanny resemblance to the […]

Flying-V Passenger Jet Is Basically A Giant Flying Wing

An aerospace engineering team over at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) seems to think that passenger jet needs a radically different design. The team has came up with a somewhat odd-looking aircraft called Flying-V which, you may have already have guessed, is literally named after the aircraft’s shape. It is bold design that envisioned […]

China Has A Humvee-like Military Vehicle That Launches Suicide Drones

BAE Systems MAGMA UAV Maneuvers By Puffing Air Instead Of Using Flaps

How aircraft takes off, flies and land hasn’t change a lot since its invention. They uses a combination of ailerons, elevators and rudders (otherwise known as control surfaces) to do so.

New SKYCORP Hydrogen-powered Drone Can Flies For 2 Hours Straight

The biggest woe relating to drone technology is not quite the range, but the battery life which in turns affect the flight time. With most of today’s drones, the most you get is 30 minutes, tops. And that’s only with high-grade, so-called prosumer drones. Most common drone averages at around 20 minutes. But SKYCORP e-Drone […]

This Robinson R22 Is No Ordinary R22 Helicopter, It Is Completely Unmanned

More than likely, the mention of drone or UAV will conjure up the image of a quad- or multicopter, or something along the line of the Predator. What you see here is what one would not imagine as a drone, but the thing is, it is in fact a UAV. Wait. Isn’t that a Robinson […]

Blimp-type UAV Sucks In Air To Propel Itself Forward

Today’s drones, regardless of their applications, are not quite groundbreaking as long as they are limited by battery life (and therefore, range) and if they are still propelled by rotors. It is like a person, dressed up in different costumes or people doing different jobs. Basically, they change in form, but not in substance. The […]
