Daniel Ayalas insight:
Key innovations of the Atlas Pro include a proprietary tri-copter aircraft, with unique wing forms designed to generate lift and a rounded structure to withstand high pressure. This first-of-its-kind design enables increased speed, altitude and agility while reducing overall power consumption and drag. Additional proprietary technologies include a Lithium-silicon smart battery with industrial standard BMS, a robust and light-weight carbon fiber construction capable of performing in extreme weather and a versatile exchangeable payload protocol. The drone’s capabilities include 50 minutes of flight time, 50km range (12 km range with 720 stream), 140 km/hour maximum speed and altitudes of up to 6000 meters.
