Transformer Drone | SkyProwler

The SkyProwler from Krossblade is according to their Kickstarter campaign page, ” A transformer drone that hovers like a copter, flies fast and efficient like an airplane and transforms between the two configurations.”   Krossblade says that their drone takes off like a multicopter and using thrusters picks up speed and then continues to cruise using its high-speed wings configuration.  And that the multirotor take-off mechanism folds away in air, which improves aerodynamics and thus speed endurance and range far better than pure copters and on-par with pure airplanes.
