Commercial drones lead consumer drones with commercial drone technologies ranging from airframe to sensor, software to service, 2022 Autel Robotics leads Dragon Fish to the world's leading commercial UAV expo in the US in September Las Vegas, Nevada. The commercial drones exhibited throughout the exhibition were displayed outdoors in the desert.
Dragonfish Standard and Dragonfish Lite in the revolutionary fixed-wing sUAS series
The unique tilt-rotor design of the Dragon fish series simplifies operation while maximizing performance and efficiency. Dragonfish has no complicated moving parts and is modular, waterproof, smart and reliable. Out of the box, Dragonfish includes powerful AI tracking and multiple modular payload options.
Autel's John McBride showcases Autel's iconic fixed pterosaur. eVTOLs can be launched and recovered in confined spaces and, due to their increased range, can be used in a variety of ISR and public safety applications: search and rescue, reconnaissance, etc. “We really wanted to show how easy it was to use,” said Maxwell Lee, president of Autel Robotics. “It was really easy to launch and fly, and it did its job the way it was supposed to. "
Jon McBride: VP of Technology and Training at Autel Robotics. With global responsibility, a key figure in the development and implementation of emerging drone technologies, serving as the Autel Robotics training center project. Train customers and resellers on how to get the most out of their Autel products, especially the Dragonfish eVTOL series.
This reliability and ease of use are key features for Dragon fish customer base. In the well-publicized Gabby Petito tragedy earlier this year, the Lee County Sheriff's Department used Dragonfish to find fugitive Brian Landry in the Carlton Preserve.

The future of further development of commercial drones
In this new era, drones are no longer just for hobbyists, but also for public safety and specific industry applications. If commercial drones need further research and innovation, they must develop more industrial and military uses. Commercial drones work for government entities as much as possible, and seeking government-enterprise cooperation is a new advantage.
