Seems like the only way to go as alternate to burning dinosaurs.

Re: Anyone interested in hydrogen fuel cell drone?

According to your specs, you have an 18 pound drone flying on an 800W fuel cell and a 1050 mAh (1.0A) Lipo battery?
I am a little skeptical, but I would love to see this thing fly for a full 2 hours.

You start converting energy by burning all the crap that has already been produced, catching the small solid chunk of hazard waste in a puck size chunk for zillions of pounds of garbage.

By that time you should be able to figure out cleaner energy transfer.....it will take decades.

Re: Anyone interested in hydrogen fuel cell drone?

While i think the op might have done some photoshop work...

It appears to be based on similar hydrogen tank and fuel design as these guys are selling.

https://www.intelligent-energy.com/our-products/uavs/

https://youtu.be/TVCMJHzyNpw

https://youtu.be/FExpr1wRf5U

https://youtu.be/AHlrLU7kTys

Another brand
https://www.ballard.com/markets/uav

Basically there are fuel cell system available that are 3 times the power density of the best bats available. Been around for awhile. But its all been nasa and military price tech. But the smaller 0.5-2kw stuff is here at commercial price levels. The larger stuff is coming. Don't expect to see them at hobby king soon.
