Today’s show is a special one as we are joined by Watts Innovation founder, Bobby Watts. Bobby shares some detailed information about his new commercial drone platform – the Prism, an all-American product that comes with variable propulsions and flexible payloads.
Prism is a “Transformer Drone” that can be flown both as a quad and as a co-axial setup. When you transform this bird from a quad to a co-axial set-up, you can increase the maximum takeoff weight from 35 pounds to 55 pounds. Additionally, the ability to create propulsion ID’s and accessory ID’s allows you to change propulsion systems and gimbals.
All these plug-and-play features means that you can use the Prism for aerial photography, autonomous mapping missions, and for making drone deliveries. Tune in to learn more about this exciting new drone.
