solar gecko UAV / Drone

solar gecko UAV

UAVs actually consume a lot of power when flying in the air, especially when hovering for some fixed-angle shots. At this time if it can stay on the wall, it can not only get more stable pictures but also save power to increase its battery life. This UAV can easily stop on the wall if necessary to achieve the above functions. It can also charge through its own solar panels to further enhance its battery life.
