UK-based industrial engineer Fraser Leid has released details about his rather unconventional concept Tesla Drone. On his Behance page Fraser notes that the common issue with personal drones today is their lack of battery capacity, which in turn, limits their flight time to 20 minutes and their charging time to an hour. With these issues in mind, Leid applied the drone design to a company synonymous with battery efficiency, and incorporated an effective battery integration concept.
Gone is the usual quadcopter-style four-propeller design, the drone’s two carbon GlideLite propellers function in both vertical and horizontal positions and work together to give steady footage as it shoots different paced activities at 4K resoltuion. The Tesla Drone sports a 10,000 mAh Li-ion Tesla Power Cell battery giving the unit 60 minutes’ flight time with a 20-minute full charge on its wireless charging station.
