This is a T-type search and rescue drone. The shape is inspired by dragonflies, and the hollowed-out wings can reduce the weight of the entire drone. It has a special storage box for easy carrying. The takeoff process of the drone is to first pop out of the box, then spread its wings, and finally start flying. In addition, the drone has an infrared detector and a camera, which can accurately detect the rescued person.
