Drones in water sports

Freefly Systems invented a brand new Dronesurfing sport that will appeal to water sports enthusiasts. This is a modification of kitesurfing with the difference that instead of a small kite, the athlete is drawn by the drones.

For a constantly growing list of modern dron applications, you can add more. It is Dronesurfing, a new kind of water sport invented by Freefly Systems. Sport is very similar to typical kitesurfing, but it differs in the way of the drive. Instead of a small kite flying to the wind, which is usually an athlete, we have a mighty dron equipped with eight rotors.

The machine called the Freefly ALTA 8 shoulder span of up to 1325 mm, is equipped with eight Freefly F45 motors. Each has a continuous power of 350 W and a maximum of 950 W and accelerates to 6300 RPM. The propellers were made of lightweight carbon fiber reinforced balsam to withstand such high revolutions. The dron is powered by a battery pack connected in parallel.

Dron was not specially modified to pull people, but as provided by Freefly Systems, a single battery charge can pull a person about 3-4 times, with each tow lasting about 30 seconds.

The American police will get armed drones

A few weeks ago a sensation triggered a movie thrown into the net, where you can see how the armed dron shot at the target. It was a freak of a lone enthusiast, however, the idea of ​​unmanned equipment armed was soon picked up by the American police, which will soon receive such equipment for equipment.

At first, armed drones will be available to North Dakota policemen as the mayor of this state has just introduced a new amendment to the law that allows the use of such machines.

For now it will not be a lethal weapon, of course, so we will not see flying equipment equipped with rifle bullets, pistols and grenade launchers. Officials will, however, be able to install unmanned guns, rubber bullets, pepper spray, tasers, and sound guns, and then use such machines during the action.
