DRONE DELIVERY NEWS
All the latest drone delivery news
2018 saw a fair amount of negative press surrounding drones, so it is perhaps important to remind ourselves that drone technology can be used for much more that just a hobby. One of the major benefits of drones is that they bring access to areas that in the past would...

Drone Delivery News
We are pretty obsessed with the advances in drones being used for delivery so we will be keeping you right up to date with the latest in the world of drone delivery as well as any other pertinent drone related news.
2 Hour Batteries – Coming Soon…
Anyone who has used a budget drone will know of the pain of losing battery life after just a few minutes. Even those of us flying the likes of some of DJI’s flagship models that can fly for 30 minutes will understand the frustrations associated with battery life. Well, that may be a thing of the past thanks to Impossible Aerospace who have recently unveiled a drone that can fly for two hours.
To be more accurate, the drone is actually made of batteries, so the bulk of the drone is actually made of tiny batteries designed to power the lightweight quadcopter for up to 2 hours.
You may be thinking that 2 hours is somewhat excessive for the casual drone user but this could lead to huge advances in the way in which drones are used either commercially or by emergency teams. Imagine a drone that can fly for two hours to monitor traffic for local radio or the impact a 2 hour flight time could have for mountain search and rescue teams!
This technology will certainly be of interest to companies such as Amazon and Dominoes who have already pursued drone delivery technology before. Battery life has always been a key stumbling block but this could be about to change with batteries used in this way.
Only time will tell but for more information be sure to check out the Impossible Aerospace website.

A New Resource For Starting A Commercial Drone Business
Drones are continuing to grow in popularity and with the emergence of new technology there are new markets and commercial opportunities appearing all the time in the industry.
We were contacted by Coptrz.com who have just launched a new eBook worth £199 – but they are giving it away for free.
Here’s what they had to say:
The commercial drone industry is growing at a rapid rate as technology continues to improve. In the space of only a couple of years we have seen drones evolve from hobbyist aircraft to commercial grade platforms, and the use cases are growing daily.
In many key industries, drones are providing an alternative data collection method that is in most cases cheaper, faster and safer than traditional methods. With the UAV technology currently available on the market, we are seeing a major uplift in commercial drone operations in media, inspection, agriculture, construction and surveying.
Along with this sudden increase in commercial drone activity comes a need for more drone service providers. The potential opportunities are lucrative, however it’s not as simple as just buying a drone and charging for your captured data. There are a number of factors to take into account and this guide from COPTRZ aims to advise you of the full process of starting a commercial drone services business.
If you’d like to download the free 23 page eBook and learn more about the commercial drone opportunities then you can get it here.
