Winning the record for flying the largest quadcopter drone is the somewhat eccentric ambition set by a team of engineers from the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom. Bet won since this dronedrone with a wingspan of 6.4 meters has just taken off and has no competitor with only four engines. THE gigantismgigantism generally has a disadvantage, that of a massemasse quite high. However, in the country, it is necessary to have an exemption to fly a drone weighing more than 25 kilos. A real constraint that researchers have resolved.

A cardboard drone
To pass below this threshold, the team managed to contain the mass of this drone to 24.5 kilos. It was therefore necessary to use cunning to find a materialmaterial light. But that’s not all, since in its own specifications, the team had decided that it also had to be very inexpensive and respectful of the environment. They therefore opted for a frame made of foam cardboard. The five-millimeter-thick cardboard is reinforced with a plastic core. moussemousse.
