The designer is 21-year old Frasier Leid from South Africa, who is inspired by Tesla advances in battery technology.
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).
2 Other Interesting Features:
Docking stand incorporating wireless charging (classic Tesla)
30 Megapixel Camera with 4k video recording
Overall, very interesting design, but will it work? We’ll be on the lookout for more about this!
