Edgar Herrera – Bladeless Drone

The Bladeless Drone solves the three main problems of today’s common drones: air humming, exposed blades and wind. Without exposed rotor blades, it takes advantage of the headwind and forces it through internal ducts to generate a downward flow.

Imagine one flying a common drone in the neighbourhood park, when suddenly, strong wind gusts over. The drone user tries to control the drone but the headwind destabilises it, taking it down, possibly injuring a child. Such accident can easily happen with today’s drones. Therefore, the Bladeless Drone uses technology that makes flying a drone safer. Without rotor blades, it uses adversities like headwind to its favour by regulating its airflow. This stabilises its motors for smoother flying, while converting the wind into a downward flow.
