Video of the week: the first automatic flight of the Cormorant drone

Aesthetically, the Cormorant drone has nothing of the flying car as we imagine it. Yet it is probably the drone that getting more currently. Formerly called by the AirMule Member, the Cormorant has just completed its first autonomous flight. This first autonomous flight seems sometimes chaotic, reflecting, according to its designer of the quality of its FMS (Flight Management System), which has the react especially when one of the laser altimeter provided inconsistent data or even upon landing at the beginning of which the descent was too fast. The Israeli Urban Aeronautics who developed this drone to vertical (VTOL) flight to the military still has work to do to develop his Cormorant. It maybe then civil market opportunities so permitting regulations.
