Quaternium drone breaks world record flying for 10 hours and 14 minutes without recharging

Quaternium, the first company on the market to develop hybrid drones, made history again with an HYBRiX flight that lasted 10 hours and 14 minutes, setting a world record.

To this end, Quaternium partnered with the pioneer EFI (Electronic Fuel Injections) manufacturer, Löweheiser, a company that designed the smallest fuel injection on the market, specifically optimized for unmanned aircraft.

The unprecedented flight started at 8:20 am with an experimental version of the HYBRiX drone that had the full 16 liters of its tank. The drone landed at 6:34 pm, after 10 hours and 14 minutes in the air. The Quaternium company published a flight video showing the record. Check it out below:

Several improvements were made to HYBRiX to achieve this milestone, but the main one was the partnership with Löweheiser. Alicia Fuentes, CEO of Quaternium, explained:

WE ARE CONVINCED THAT THE COOPERATION WITH LÖWEHEISER IS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP NEW RESOURCES AND MEET OUR AMBITIOUS GOALS FOR 2021. THIS COLLABORATION IS GOING VERY WELL AND WE ARE SURE THAT IT WILL BE VERY BENEFICIAL FOR BOTH PARTIES.

HYBRiX technology overcomes the main limitation of multirotor drones, which is limited flight time. Thanks to this huge flight time advantage, the HYBRiX is the ideal aircraft for aerial missions such as Surveillance or First Response.

When Löweheiser electronic fuel injections are added to the equation, the flight time of this hybrid drone is increased and its reliability too, being able to adapt easily to any variation in weather conditions.

Thanks to the reduced size of this state-of-the-art fuel injection, it was possible to integrate it into the aircraft built specifically for registration without losing performance, since its weight is almost the same as the carburetor version.

During the 10-hour mission, the Löweheiser team monitored engine parameters at all times, providing HYBRiX operators with essential data to optimize engine performance, making this new world record possible.
