MetaVista Breaks World Record Of Multi Rotor UAV Flight Time

Aircraft Powered By Intelligent Energy Fuel Cell Power Module

A flight time of 12 hours, 7 minutes and 5 seconds was officially recorded by South Korean company MetaVista as it successfully broke the multi rotor UAV World Record of flight time. The MetaVista team used a 6-liter (1.5 gallon) liquid hydrogen cylinder and Intelligent Energy’s 800W Fuel Cell Power Module to power the UAV.

The previous record held stood at 2 hours, 6 minutes and 7 seconds. The substantial difference in flight time achieved demonstrates the impact fuel cells could have on the commercial UAV industry, breaking through the limited flight time constraints of traditional batteries.

"We would like to congratulate our customer, MetaVista, on their achievement of becoming the new World Record holders for multi rotor UAV flight time. The use of liquid hydrogen in this flight showcases the significant flight times that can be achieved and we are sure MetaVista will continue to push the boundaries,” said Lee Juby, Chief Sales Officer at Intelligent Energy.

"Our ultra-light weight liquid hydrogen storage tanks complement Intelligent Energy’s lightweight Fuel Cell Power Modules and the World Record attempt has demonstrated what we can achieve," said Dr. Jong Baik, MetaVista Inc. CEO.

Last month U.K.-based fuel cell engineering company Intelligent Energy and MetaVista signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to commit to a long-term partnership and collaboration after a previous test flight achievement of over 10 hours.
