Drone skydiving

Posted June 13, 2017

Latvian company Aerones specializes in creating industrial drones that can carry loads of up to 100 kg. To demonstrate the lifting power, the company has used a custom unit to carry a skydiver aloft, before he accomplished the planned jump and landing with the parachute. Their 28-propeller drone lifts skydiver Ingus Augstkalns off a radio-tower and elevates him 330 meters into the air. Then he free falls for a couple of seconds before releasing his parachute.

This achievement shows the reliability of the drone technology that could be used in saving people, fire-fighting, sports and entertainment. Take a look at the drone jump stunt in the video below.
