Mobile Recon Systems has announced a new unmanned multi-rotor air vehicle (UAV) capable of lifting more than its own weight. This model, called “Dauntless”, is designed to set new records for what multi-rotor UAVs can carry. At 78 pounds, the Dauntless has easily lifted an additional payload of 100 pounds as a tethered quadcopter. It is designed to lift over 200 pounds as an octocopter, with a generator-powered flight time of several hours. “Drones have proven to be great for videography. But, uses beyond that have been limited by low lift capacity, limited flight time, and narrow functional capability. With the Dauntless, that is no longer the case,” said Mobile Recon Systems founder, Mike Dowell.
