Eight rotors arranged in a V-shape are setting out to change the face of commercial aviation services as Intel showcases the new Falcon 8+ drone as they attempt to carve out their own niche in the rapidly evolving unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) marketplace.
Intel's new "Intel Cockpit" controller featuring a single joystick to control flight, with a second joystick to control the payload operation (such as a camera sensor), controls this wicked creature. Redundancy in built into the UAS at multiple touch points. The aircraft is capable of flight even if two rotors on each side fail, has multiple batteries, and has three separate inertial measurement systems for the autopilot.
"We believe we’re truly on the verge of a drone revolution,' declared Intel CEO Brian Krzanich.
