Chinese drone maker Zero Zero Robotics exhibited its new-generation product the V-Coptr Falcon at CES 2020. Its biggest highlight is that it has only two propellers and has a battery life of up to 50 minutes.
The V-Coptr Falcon fuselage is inspired by the V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor military aircraft, which uses a double propeller design that greatly reduces power consumption and weight.
Its V-shaped body also helps reduce wind resistance, so it can have such excellent endurance.
V-Coptr Falcon's front 3D camera supports a full range of depth perception capabilities and VIO (Visual Inertial Odometer) technology to improve obstacle avoidance systems, but only if the flight speed is not higher than 7m/s.
The camera uses a 12-megapixel 1/2.3-inch sensor and is equipped with a three-axis mechanical head. It can take 12-megapixel photos and up to 4K/30fps movies (or 2.7K/60fps, 1080p/120fps).
In addition, Falcon has a storage capacity of 8GB, and a controller that supports a 7km reception range and 2.5 hours of power.
The V-Coptr Falcon drone is priced at $999 and will be available in February.
Zero Zero was founded in 2014 and specializes in embedded AI technology to create intelligent devices characterized by machine vision and high precision control systems, according to the company's website introduction.
The V-Coptr Falcon is the world's first consumer bicopter that was made by multi-patented dual rotor propulsion system and proprietary flight control technology.
