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 […]

Dutch Scientists Created The World’s Smallest Autonomous Racing Drone

Here’s a breakthrough in drone technology developed by Micro Air Vehicle Laboratory (MAVLab) of TU Delft (Delft University of Technology). The scientists at MAVLab has created the world’s smallest autonomous racing drone that measures just 10 cm (3.94″) in diameter and weighs a mere 72g (2.54 oz), and yet capable of navigating itself through an […]

Hummingbird Robot Learned To Fly By Learning From Real Hummingbirds

It looks like someone have picked up where AeroVironment have left off. If you recall, AeroVironment had developed a Nano Hummingbird several yeas ago under a DARPA program aimed in developing Nano Air Vehicle or NAV. So, yeah, someone has developed a hummingbird drone and this being six years on, technology this hummingbird is way […]

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

China is surely ramping up its military capability and with it, sprawling an industry that rapidly introduced rather disturbing military hardware, like the unmanned amphibious vehicle that could stay dormant for months before call to action and weird drone that is designed to drop precision bombs, for examples. The latest to surface is this armored […]

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. Even rotary wing aircraft uses the same principle, except that in helicopters, it is maneuvered by manipulating the main and tail rotors via cyclic […]

DroneBullet is A “Missile Drone” That Will Knock Drones Out Of The Sky

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 […]
