American aerospace giant Boeing is unveiling a heavy-duty cargo drone that is designed to make it possible to haul massive loads of weight at significant distances.
By making use of what Boeing calls an electric vertical-takeoff-and-landing (eVTOL) system, this particular quadcopter can lift off while carrying a payload of up to 500 pounds. Measuring in at 15 feet long, 18 feet wide and four feet tall, this cargo drone weighs in at 747 pounds, making it one of the biggest drones around. The drone has undergone initial flight tests, with further research and development in the works.
This humongous cargo drone is designed to help contribute to the revolution currently gripping the air travel and cargo transportation industries by using autonomous and electric technologies for greater efficiency.
