The V-Coptr Falcon Drone Uses A Military-Inspired Tilting 2-Rotor Design

Over the past decade, the drone industry has grown to insane heights, culminating in a healthy landscape of elevated capture devices to make our cinematic dreams a reality, and gifting us a rare glimpse at the world’s most remote locations. While the design of said drones has remained relatively stagnant, Zero Zero’s latest offering, the V-Coptr Falcon, has arrived to question the natural order of things.

Aesthetically, the Zero Zero V-Coptr Falcon strikes remarkably true to its name. In a world where four-rotor quadcopters rule the skies, this compact variant adopts an interesting bi-copter design that might just be the first of its kind. Inspired in some form by the Boeing V-22 Osprey, the Falcon’s tilting, dual-rotor architecture is said to be more efficient than its four-rotor counterparts, helping it to stay airborne for around 50 minutes per flight, and reducing propeller noise to a fraction of what it once was. To achieve this, Zero Zero Robotics has implemented a healthy portion of nonlinear dynamic modeling, improving its nimbleness in the air, while retaining a number of the industry’s most sought-after drone characteristics, including Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO) for obstacle avoidance, a 12-megapixel CMOS sensor camera that can capture sharp 4K video at 30fps, and a three-axis gimbal to keep footage stable and shake-free. We’ve only begun to scratch the surface of the $700 V-Coptr, so head to the company’s website to learn more.
