Drone designs are changing every single day. The V-Coptr Falcon may just be the next step in the long road to drone development.
Drones have a standard design – for the most part. Popular drones have four small propellers built close to the drone’s body. However, that may not be the best way to approach the drone evolution. In order to optimize and raise the bar, drones try to change in every way. For example, drone designs change to create longer flight time, achieve longer distance traveled, as well as have a more durable exterior.
Quadcopters, while great, cannot fulfill all these roles. Quadcopters often offer a balanced mix between speed and flight stability. To maximize one aspect over another, changes need to happen with a drone’s design.
V-Coptr Falcon Review
A new drone is making headlines with this in mind. It tries to replicate a helicopter – while adding a second massive propeller. This bicopter drone forms a V-shaped design, with propellers on each end.
The aptly named V-Coptr Falcon offers a drone with two powerful propellers for flight. Similar to a helicopter, the V-Coptr can do vertical landings and takeoffs, while also being able to hover in place. The most important thing about the V-design is its change in the drone’s battery life. With only two powerful rotors to handle instead of the usual four, it can save a bit of energy. In fact, it can last for 50 minutes in one charging. That gives it nearly double the average flight time for quadcopters.
Pros and Cons
While the amazing flight time may entice you, be forewarned. The V-Coptr Falcon may cost a pretty penny. When it hits the stores next year, you may be seeing a thousand-dollar price tag on it. What do you think? Will the price justify the 50-minute flight capability? Or is it too much, and cheaper drones are still thee key?
