Heurobotics Mark II: Farming Drone with Vertical Takeoff

Super Cool Physics Toys

In the past few months, we have covered many flying machines that can make life easier for farmers. The Heurobotics Mark II is also worth a look. It is a hybrid flying machine that takes off vertically like a helicopter and flies like a plane. It can be used for rescue missions, bridge inspection, surveillance, and other challenging missions.

The Mark II has an airframe like a twin-engine helicopter. It can perform turns in forward flight and land vertically. The current version is battery powered but a gas-powered version could be developed in the future. The Mark II can scan up to 250 acres and fly for 20 minutes.

This computer-controlled flying machine was developed at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
