User-operated drones have become one of the most useful innovations in recent years, allowing for a variety of applications like consumer fun, professional media production, commercial agriculture, and military operations — but they’re still plagued with a variety of limiting issues like their short time in the air. HES Energy has introduced a new, industrial-grade multi-rotor drone that aims to address this significant shortcoming.

The new Hycopter is a hydrogen-powered six-propeller drone system that utilizes HES Energy’s innovative 1300W fuel cells to prolong flight duration to nearly three and a half hours — which is almost five times as long as a traditional industrial drone. The 140g pressure regulated system has three different hydrogen storage options and acts as a platform for high-precision observation systems to remain in use for extended periods of time. It features a 12V payload power and an open bay that can carry up to six-pounds of additional equipment like a hi-res camera in 20 mph winds.
