New FlyCroTug Micro-Drone Can Pull 40 Times Its Own Weight

Recommended Posts

A new micro-drone created by scientists from Stanford and EPFL in Switzerland can pull objects that weigh 40 times its own weight.

Many of the headlines out there right now about the FlyCroTug state that it can lift 40 times its own weight, but this is actually not true. As Sally French (a.k.a. the Drone Girl) recently pointed out the FlyCroTug can only pull 40 times its own weight.

Tiny drones are also a good starting place for beginner drone pilots, since they fairly inexpensive. One other place we've been seeing small drones be used a lot is in light shows, like the one Intel put on at the Winter Olympics this year.

What do you think about this new, super powerful micro-drone, and micro-drones in general? How can this tech be harnessed, and what do you see it being used for in the future?

Neat little drone. Looks like a start to what can be something big. For now though, It's a neat toy that cost a lot of money to design and build.
