FLYWORKS

2nd generation high performance hybrid drones

MISSION

01 / Increase performance
02 / Rely on petrol
03 / Re-think drones

Drones, with their simplicity and low cost, have made a huge impact on the consumer market over the last few years.
Multirotors are now set to penetrate the huge commercial market and long-range beyond-visual-line-of-sight operations.
Multirotors rely on heavy batteries to store energy, preventing them from delivering commercial grade performance.

Petrol has 50 times the energy density of batteries, and is consumed during flight.
It can deliver unparalleled performance when compared to batteries.

Multirotor drones rely on electric motors to be able to maneuver.

 

Powering a drone with a petrol engine while keeping it efficient, safe, and simple to use is a huge challenge and is our mission.

TECHNOLOGY

AN INNOVATIVE DRIVE MECHANISM

FlyWorks has developed and patented a novel way to power multirotor drones using a petrol engine.

 

Our technology combines the remarkable performance of petrol fuel with the safety and simplicity of the multirotor platform. It works by delivering most of the power that the drone requires to stay in the air directly from an internal combustion engine while a small electric drive system provides a small fraction of power only for maneuvering

 

Our technology can be implemented in any drone platform size to create a wide array of high-performance multirotor platforms for various use-cases from land surveying to air-taxis.

HORIZONS

Extended flight duration means high volume of work can be done faster – greatly increasing crews’ efficiency and reducing cost.

True industrial grade performance and safety will unlock use cases previously considered not economical.
