CyPhy Works’ new tethered mini-drone flies for 2 hours | IEEE Spectrum


curated by | October 25, 2014

“It fits in your pocket and weights a mere 80 grams. It’ll fly continuously for two hours or more, sending back high quality HD video the entire time. What’s the catch? There isn’t one, except for the clever thing that grants all of CyPhy’s UAVs their special powers: a microfilament tether that unspools the drone and keeps it constantly connected to communications and power.”
