FlyingBasket is a leading developer of heavy-lift cargo drones for commercial and civil applications. We are passionate about revolutionizing the logistics industry and creating novel solutions that push the boundaries of unmanned aviation while prioritizing safety, efficiency and sustainability.
In addition to our manufacturing capabilities, we also offer Drones as a Service (DaaS), and are the most experienced cargo drone operator in Europe, specializing in goods transportation and heavy lifting for a wide range of industries.
FB3 Heavy-lift Drone
Heavy-lift commercial cargo drone with 100kg carrying capacity
The FB3 is a heavy-payload cargo drone that provides an unparalleled combination of carrying capacity and compact size. The all-electric platform requires no disassembly and can be easily transported inside a van or trailer, ready to deploy at a moment’s notice.The FB3 has been designed to be BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight)-ready, with a robust data link that transmits critical flight control data and telemetry at ranges of up to 10 km. All frequency bands have been specifically configured to minimize interference, and are ECO (European Communications Office)-approved.
Versatile payload options
The highly adaptable heavy-lift drone delivers exceptional strength, with the ability to lift 100 kg of payload while weighing only 70 kg. It can be provided in one of two configurations, allowing you to carry and transport payloads of all shapes and sizes:
Use our proprietary remote-controlled load hook to lift and detach heavy cargo
A rugged transportation box measuring 81 x 35 x 30 cm, designed to suit a wide range of payloads and operational requirements
The FB3 features eight brushless motors configured in a coaxial quadcopter setup. This innovative design divides propulsion into top and bottom subsystems, providing critical redundancy for the utmost in safety while ensuring superior heavy-lift performance.
Thanks to our custom-made smart batteries, the FB3 is an eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to helicopters and combustion engine-powered aircraft for mission-critical cargo deployment, providing a minimal environmental footprint.
Robust safety features
We have designed the FB3 from the ground up with safety foremost in mind. The aircraft includes a comprehensive suite of cutting-edge features to ensure peace of mind and mission confidence even in the most challenging of environments.
Flight Termination System (FTS): ensures precise control over the aircraft, allowing users to easily keep within the Ground Risk Buffer
ADS-B Receiver (optional): provides real-time information on nearby aircraft for enhanced situational awareness and collision avoidance
Propulsion System Redundancy: in the event of motor controller, motor, battery, or short circuit failures, the drone can still continue to operate safely
Radar AGL Sensor: accurate measurement of altitude above ground level for terrain-following, obstacle avoidance, and overall safety
Effective responses to emergencies and challenging conditions
Expertise in conducting transportation missions with cargo compartments and load slings
With a maximum capacity of 100 kg, the FB3 drone is ideal for efficient transportation of critical goods, beating the traffic and delivering in a timely manner.
The FB3 is ideal for the transportation and lifting of antennas and other equipment for installation on telecoms infrastructure, providing a cost-effective alternative to cranes and helicopters.
Offshore & Energy
Our heavy-lift drones are ideal for making deliveries to oil rigs and offshore platforms, as well as lifting generators and other components and equipment on wind turbines.
FB3 cargo drones make excellent workhorses for the construction industry, providing heavy lifting capabilities for on-site crews. Construction materials and equipment can be moved in a fast and versatile manner while saving on the cost of cranes.
The FB3 is an environmentally-friendly and safe heavy-lift platform that can easily access remote and challenging locations with minimal noise pollution and energy consumption, and is ideal for forest preservation and restoration as well as firefighting.
