Interesting Podcast where Ian Smith of Commercial Drones speaks with Joshua Resnick the CEO of Parallel Flight Technology.
Parallel Flight Technology is a start-up building a hybrid drone with the capacity to lift relatively heavy payloads for long periods. As an example, on the high end they discuss that a 75 lbs. drone should be able to life about 75 lbs. Or that same drone being able to lift a 10 lb. payload for over 6 hours.
An ex-Tesla engineer, who worked in their truck division, Joshua shares an interesting story of how became interested in drones.
The unit is a hybrid drone that runs on gas with a electric component that makes this type of flight more efficient.
