The Airvinci is an innovative heavy drone that is designed to carry big-time loads, with a view to proving its capability to eventually be able to carry human cargo.

Dreamed up by inventor Tarek Ibrahim, this heavy drone is a ducted fan VTOL aircraft. In its present iteration, it is designed to look and function like a fixed-pitch rotor aircraft drone. Currently in the later stages of its development, this heavy drone is nearing final assembly. It will be able to carry a truly impressive payload somewhere in the region of 120 kg. While it is currently at odds with various personal aircraft regulations, it is hoped that this will change.

This heavy drone's innovative engineering will make it useful to a wide array of markets ranging from fast-track shipping to search and rescue.
