Drone maker Autel Robotics has come up with an inventive and high-tech fixed-wing drone that is capable of taking off vertically and transitioning into a more conventional fixed-wing flight mode once it gets up and going in the air.

This unmanned drone, labelled the Kestrel, is capable of exhibiting a range of up to 100 km and can attain a top speed of 64 km/h. The tail and nose sections can be separated for convenient transportation. The drone can also make use of automatically generating flight routes and a safety system that safely guides it to the ground if the motor fails.

This fixed-wing drone has a whole range of applications in the agricultural and humanitarian contexts. The payload makes the drone perfect for carrying supplies to civilians in stricken areas.
