Connected drones have great significance in the public airspace – especially when they are flying beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS).
A new drone is exclusively connected through the 5G cellphone network and has therefore an unlimited control range. Sky Drone has launched the Sky Drone Mk1, a drone that can be controlled from anywhere in the world.
Sky Drone Mk1 has an endurance of 45 minutes. With a maximum takeoff weight (MTOM) of 3.4kg, it classifies as UAV Class 2 according to the latest EU Drone regulation. Sky Drone Mk1 is being controlled from a PC or tablet-based ground station with an optional Joystick/Gamepad controller.
To get connected the drone requires a data-enabled SIM-card. Sky Drone Mk1 has global mobile network compatibility, which includes major carriers in all countries across the globe, according to suasnews.com.
