F600: The Five Feet Wide Drone at CES

 

This year’s Consumer Electronics Show has not only come up with the coolest gadgets, it has also featured some of the upcoming drones for 2016. Aee’s F600 is certainly one of them. Though the drone is not the biggest one in the show, it is still a beast.

 

 

The F600 is 5.4 feet wide and 1.65 feet tall. And, this is not a drone meant to carry just a GoPro. Moreover, it is designed for industrial use. Think heavy-duty tasks like servicing oil rigs in high winds, as the six large rotors give it much more stability than the average Phantom.

It is not just the size of the drone that has been so tempting. The video link will transmit full HD from over six miles away, which is about the same distance as its total flight range. This drone can perform better than the average drones performing on a flight. Aee claims that it is good for almost an hour of flight time, almost three times that of the average consumer drones. This drops to 40 minutes or so with a 6.5lb payload.

In comparison to other drones, F600 has everything bigger in size. The controller is a large, rugged version of the average quadcopter. There’s also a full briefcase-sized PC ground station — complete with Windows XP according to the catalog image.

The price of this giant drone has not been announced yet. But from the looks, it seems to be an expensive one. But if you are in an enterprise, we’re sure it’s going to be a reasonable investment.
