Redundant Power Systems

The M6 commercial drone has a redundant power system, meaning that the craft can lose a motor due to mechanical failure and still successfully land keeping your payload safe.

Flight Times

Drone that Flies Longer

Flight times on the M6 with a lidar unit ranges from 25-35 minutes depending on weight, environmental factors, and battery selected.
