The design offers 2 main advantages over today’s typical multirotor / quadcopter :

  • Battery:  10,000 mAh Tesla Powercell to support flight time of around 60 minutes, and recharge in 20 minutes.
  • Stability:  Dual-prop design would eliminate need for a Gimbal camera stabalizer.  Increased flight stability would come from ability to switch between vertical configuration (for slow camera shots) or horizontal configuration (for faster, agile shots).
