Impossible Aerospace first showed their new drone the US-1 at InterDrone last week. What sets this drone apart from all other quadcopters, is its 2-hour flight time. This unmanned aircraft is uniquely designed with the batteries forming an integral part of its structure. As a result, the drone can fit many more batteries and thus achieve its extra long flight time. A little background information on the company and its founder may explain this radical approach to the design of the drone. The US start-up Impossible Aerospace was founded by former Tesla module battery design engineer Spencer Gore in 2016. The Sunnyvale, California-based company has received $9.4 million in a Series A funding to develop the drone.

Right at the start of the InterDrone show in Las Vegas, Parrot introduces two new drones; the ANFI Work and the senseFly eBee X. Let’s take a look at the ANAFI Work first. As the name implies, the drone is geared towards the commercial drone market. The drone features 4K HDR video and a 21 MP camera to take high-resolution images. It features a new gimbal design with 2 mechanical axes and 1 digital axis for stabilized video footage. One of the features that set the ANAFI apart is the 90 degrees upward tilting camera, which can be very helpful for inspections of buildings and bridges.
