PopSci Awards Draganflyer X6 Helicopter Best of What’s New 2008 Aviation & Space

Draganflyer X6 PopSci Best of What's New WinnerPopular Science Magazine’s Best of What’s New awards our Draganflyer X6 Helicopter a winner in the Aviation & Space category. PopSci’s Best of What’s New issue is released each year and ranks the top 100 products in 11 categories.

Popular Science’s “Best of What’s New” awards honor the innovations that make a positive impact on life today and change our views of the future,” says Mark Jannot, Editor-in-Chief of Popular Science. “PopSci’s editors evaluate thousands of products each year to develop this thoughtful list, there’s no higher accolade Popular Science can give“.

There are model helicopters, and then there are military unmanned aerial vehicles. The Draganflyer X6 is the first hovering craft that fits right in between. This small helicopter, the first to use six horizontal blades for a stable hover and speedy turns, is designed to supply aerial video to everyone from police to hobbyists. The pilot guides it by handheld controller while wearing video glasses that allow him to see what the chopper sees through a camera attached to a vibration-free mount on the vehicle’s belly. The X6 carries 11 onboard sensors-gyroscopes, accelerometers, magnetometers, GPS and a barometric-pressure sensor – and flies for up to 25 minutes.

We’re proud our Draganflyer X6 helicopter won such a prestigious award. Learn more about the Draganflyer X6 at www.draganfly.com.
