B-Unstoppable Tankcopter Drone

This project fell short of its Kickstarter goal in July 2015, but the B-Unstoppable Tankcopter Drone is trying its luck again, this time on Indiegogo, looking to raise $77,000.

The vehicle has four propellers to fly and two caterpillar tracks drive on the ground. The 900 mAh Li-po battery provides B-unstoppable with 9 minutes of flying time, 12-20 minutes of driving time and a combined total of around 13-15 minutes flying and driving. It also comes equipped with a powerful (coreless motors ), 2.4 GHz radio transmitter, front and back lights, that allows for night operation as well as indicating low battery level.

Here’s the idea: On the ground, the B-Unstoppable is able to clamber over a variety of terrain. But if the going gets tough it can take to the air and fly around.
