Spain-based Quaternium collaborated with EFI manufacturer Löweheiser, a company known for the world’s smallest fuel injection system optimized for unmanned aircraft, to set a new flight record for UAVs. Using the experimental electric hybrid (gasoline + electric) HYBRiX 2.1 drone, the flight began at 8:20 am in the morning with a full tank with 16 liters of fuel and landed at 6:34 pm, or approximately after 10 hours and 14 minutes in the air.
Quadcopters are the preferred aerial platform for commercial applications, but their limited range makes them useless for many tasks. HYBRiX technology has solved this problem with their latest drone, thanks to the fuel injection system from Löweheiser. Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on pricing or availability. Hopefully, we do see a more practical version of this technology used in one of their standard drones.

- Mavic Mini's weight allows it to stay in the air longer than similar consumer FlyCams on the market Enjoy up to 30 minutes of flight time with a fully-charged battery
We are convinced that the cooperation with Löweheiser is a unique opportunity to develop new capabilities and meet our ambitious goals for 2021. This collaboration is going great and we are confident that it is going to be really beneficial for both sides,” said Alicia Fuentes, Quaternium CEO.
