Okay kids, move aside. The Big Player’s here to show off skills. Airbus’ conceptual Thunderbird Drone means serious business. It isn’t meant for you to spy on your neighbors or hatch pokemon eggs… its purpose is much larger than that. The name Airbus is synonymous with perfection in aviation, and the Thunderbird is the tiniest addition to Airbus’ roster. It retains the aerodynamic airplane aesthetic, while also being drone-like with the quad-rotor layout.
Most drones house cameras in the center of their construction, making them your eyes in the sky. The Airbus Thunderbird however comes with a secure storage area that’s built for emergency payload transport. Be it anything from a harvested human organ, to a medical kit, to even emergency cargo like a life-raft or food/water supply… the Thunderbird aims at becoming almost a beacon for swift and reliable aerial support!
