Hydrogen fueled Drones?
This kinda feels hella dangerous but it increases the flight time from 15/20 minutes up to 2 hours.
It’ll be interesting to see how this will play out in the future!
Intelligent Energy‘s fuel cell can power a modified drone for up to two hours – about six times longer than the average with a normal battery.
Refuelling with compressed hydrogen takes a few minutes compared to recharging a battery.
The company sees its drones being primarily used in industry for agriculture and oil and gas mapping, before being offered as a consumer product.
Intelligent Energy expects to have the fuel cells ready for commercial use in the next year.
