In China, the MMC company introduced the first commercially available drone powered by hydrogen. The durability of Hydrone 1800 is remarkable.

Regularly available drones with chemical batteries endure only for minutes. This one can make a flight last up to 4 hours’ maximum. Plus, the battery can be “charged” in just one minute. The long charging doesn’t come in consideration then. And there’s a cherry on top – the drone can’t get damaged when it’s freezing out there.


Drones that endure this long are welcome mainly in agriculture, mapping and in the future, we’ll surely see them used in emergency services.
