From Japan, specifically from the company Prodrone, we receive information about a project that is about to reach the market and that, as you can see both in the image that is located right at the head of this same post or in the video that there are lines below, is at least unique , since we are talking about a drone equipped with arms and with enough capacity to transport heavy objects from one place to another.
The name of such a creature is Prodrone PD6B-AW-ARM and one of its most interesting characteristics is precisely the fact that its designers have endowed it with two kinds of claws with which it can catch a huge variety of objects to transport them from one place to another as if it were an eagle. In addition, with these limbs, as announced by the Japanese company itself, you will not only be able to transport objects from one place to another but you will be able to cut cables, activate switches and even cling to steep terrain when landing.
Prodrone PD6B-AW-ARM a spectacular drone equipped with two unique claws.
Going into a little more detail, tell you that, as you can see, we are before a hexacopter of about 20 kilograms of weight. Thanks to an extended range battery, the autonomy, despite the weight and its capacities, offers a autonomy of up to 30 minutes being able to reach a maximum speed of 60 kilometers per hour or a maximum altitude of up to 5.000 meters above sea level.
As you can see in the video, the capacity of this peculiar drone is simply fantastic. In turn, this design, if it becomes a success, opens wide the doors for this type of system to reach other market sectors where the ability to grab and transport objects from one place to another, Specially in open spaces, it can be key.
