    Introducing the Tesla Drone, a unique reinterpretation of drone ingenuity. Its design aesthetic was focused towards two things: redefining longevity and perception. The common issue with drones today is their lack of battery capacity, which in turn, limits their flight time to 20 minutes and their charging time to an hour. The Tesla drone incorporates an advanced 10 000 mAh Lithium-Ion (Tesla Powercell®) battery, capable of prolonged flight lasting up to an hour on a single charge. The second key component was related to design and straying away from convention. By not replicating a Quadcopter, but innovating a new twin blade design that allows the propellers to act as the drone camera’s stabiliser, a gimbal isn’t required for video stability. This new configuration also makes the drone more battery efficient, since the propellers themselves create an immense amount of lift for their given surface area. The unique feature about the twin propeller design is their versatility. If the operator requires the drone for slow wide-angled panoramic video’s, the propellers in a vertical configuration will allow the drone to move slowly and steadily. If the operator requires the drone for fast-paced low-angled action video’s, the propellers in a horizontal configuration will make the drone nimble, quick and easy to handle at faster speeds, while also steadying the camera.

Introducing the Tesla Drone 
a unique reinterpretation of drone ingenuity.





The common issue with personal drones today is their lack of battery capacity, which in turn, limits their flight time to 20 minutes and their charging time to an hour. With that in mind, I associated the drone design to a company synonymous with battery efficiency and incorporated an effective battery integration concept.



The second key component I addressed was related to design and straying away from convention. By not replicating a Quadcopter, but configuring a new twin blade design that allows the propellers to act as the drone camera’s stabiliser, a gimbal isn’t required for video stability. 

If the operator requires the drone for slow, wide-angled panoramic video’s, the propellers in a vertical configuration will allow the drone to move slowly and steadily. If the operator requires the drone for fast-paced, low-angled action video’s, the propellers in a horizontal configuration will make the drone nimble, quick and easy to handle at faster speeds, while also steadying the camera.
