good video

It would be interesting to know the length of the cable and see what the cable reel system is like.

Tethered power systems for large multirotors were designed and tested by government vendors several years ago and found to be quite beneficial for some applications. One such example can be seen here in a FLARES press release:
Insitu Introducing ScanEagle Modifications

The drone the multirotor launches and "catches" weighs over 35lbs!

I rewrite this thread because the video Rayray showed us in his day has been officially published. Functionality is important enough to do this :)


P.D.: In this forum we are fortunate to have people directly involved in the development of the H520 :D

Any estimate of how long the H520 can run continuously? I mean, if it's too long it can affect the health of engines by overheating. If there is no estimate, relying on your own experience, how long has it been in operation?

xDDDDDDDDdddddddd no need to ask any more questions on the subject, thank you.

5 days is a good test of torture to the mechanic so the reliability is proven :D

Where the cable connects is a battery, but small, I don't know how much but enough. In case you have problems with the cable, breakage or not supplying power, you can use it to land.
