A robotics and drone business claims to have completed India’s longest drone flight, measuring 51 kilometres, to survey the Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) pipeline in Haryana.

“I believe India’s previous longest drone flight was 42 kilometres,” he remarked.

According to him, the entire flight was entirely autonomous, meaning it was on auto-pilot from takeoff to landing.

“On the drone, we had a tracking mechanism. With our tracker, we could track it over our 4G network “He made a point.

The flight, he added, was to assess the HPCL pipeline that runs between Delhi and Haryana.

“It (the pipeline) begins in Bahadurgarh (Haryana),” he explained.

He explained that this drone is a hybrid fixed-wing VTOL (vertical take off and landing) drone.
