Desiree Teran’s insight:
South Australian company, Praxis Aeronautics is working on solar technology that can extend flying time to nine hours! They plan on debuting their "demonstration drone" at the Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defense Exposition on February 26th. They have also reached out to the US to develop a partnership to supply the solar wings. Praxis developers believe that "having solar cells built as part of the wing rather than affixed to it solved the power to weight and fragility problems associated with previous solar drone designs."
