How about droneboarding?
What is droneboarding? It’s a new winter sport- mix of snowboarding and a thrust of drone. In practice, we just might say that snowboarder is pulled by drone.
The world heard about droneboarding because of video of famous youtuber- Casey Neistat. His video you can watch here, but today we want to show you other drone project from Latvia:)
Aerones, a company specializing in building on powerful drones for drone sports and rescue missions , decided to create drone designed specifically for droneboarding- powerful and capable to pull a even four snowboarders at the same time.
Drone for droneboarding is 3 meter-long, weighs 55 kilograms, has 16 propellers on the board and it’s equipped with strong ropes to pull snowboarders with maximum speed of 150km/h.
A big size of the drone and a heavy load, decreases the life of battery severelyand you can enjoy the ride on the snow for max 10 minutes.
Aerones is looking for new investors to make their drone commercially available- the cost of building the drone for droneboarding is 37 000 $.
