DJI FlyCart 30 Delivery Drone Designed To Carry Heavy Loads To Remote Locations

With over 15 years of writing experience, Jonathan has had a passion for all things tech-related since watching Inspector Gadget as a child. He's disassembled countless appliances and managed to put a few back together, and one actually still works. When not writing, he can often be found playing video games or accidentally hurting himself tinkering in the garage.

The DJI Flycart 30 is a new aerial delivery drone designed with being able to reach remote locations in mind. The drone has a max payload capacity of 30 kilograms (66 pounds) in dual battery mode or 40 kilograms (88 pounds) carrying just one of its heavy batteries. It can fly 16km (10 miles) on a charge at speeds up to 20m/s (~45MPH). It’s impressive, although its max payload is still a little light for me to fly myself to the convenience store for snacks.

A long-distance heavy lifter with powerful signal and intelligence, DJI FlyCart 30 supports Cargo mode and Winch mode and ascends beyond traditional logistical limits to deliver a safe, economical, and efficient air transport solution. Heavy payload capacity and long flight distance overcome logistical limitations for next-generation delivery.

The Flycart has a winch option for raising and lowering cargo into areas where landing isn’t feasible and avoids collisions thanks to onboard intelligent obstacle sensors. No word if those sensors can avoid a thrown spear, but given the opportunity, I’d like to perform that test myself.
