I met with the talent and founders behind Apellix drones here in Jacksonville Florida and I was incredibly impressed.
Despite how they look these are not regular quadcopters, the photos and video are cool, but they really do not do them justice.
I won’t go into the technical secret sauce behind their work, but there is a very significant amount of power needed to lift the big drones, and their water supply hose.
If you’re familiar with DJI quads like the Mini 2 or the Mavic then you likely recognize the multi-rotor quadcopter formfactor.
However they actually use motors on both the top and bottom of each leg to push and pull the aircraft with added lift.
