The PD6B-AW-ARM is based on PRODRONE’s large capacity PD6B-AW airframe, which has a maximum payload of 20kg (44 lbs.). For the new model the company’s development team designed, produced and attached two high-performance, completely original 5-axis robotic arms. They give the drone versatility to perform across a wide range of situations. The robot arms can carry a maximum payload of approximately 10 kg (22 lbs.), and with flight time of up to 30 minutes, this drone can also excel at longer tasks.

PRODRONE’s CEO, Masakazu Kono commented, “PRODRONE has won high acclaim from numerous industrial drone businesses because we develop highly reliable, highly safe, high-performance industrial drones. We are firmly focused on the future of commercial drones and on being world pioneers in developing ‘task-oriented drones.’ The PD6B-AW-ARM makes a whole new range of tasks possible, and I am confident that nobody else could have made it.”
