Microdrones Successfully Completes 10 New BVLOS Test Flights Using Its Standard Solution

ALMA, Quebec – On July 13 and 14, Microdrones completed an exciting series of test flights that extended further than the operator could see – or, as it is referred to in the aviation industry, beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS). These flights were completed with a standard configuration of RC, telemetry and batteries, meaning that the md4-1000 aircraft is ready for BVLOS, as sold today.
