MULTIROTOR service-drones G4 surveying-robot scores silver medal at worlds first drone marathon this Sunday in Berlin. The venue took place at Berlins historic harness racing track in Karlshorst with 8 commercial drone manufacturers participating. The main goal was to demonstrate operational reliability during 30 rounds including stops for battery exchange.
Dr. Frank SchÃ¶nbohm operated an out-of-the-box G4 surveying-robot during the 42km race with top speeds of 107km/h. MULTIROTORs award winning world class flight control kept the drone at a narrow 10m band at all times in spite of strong gusts and wind speeds around 45km/h. Finishing the race after 40 min MULTIROTOR was only second to a system with quadruple battery power with the remaining drones coming in up to 20 minutes later.
