The drone can be useful in civilian life as well. The range of its capacities is rather broad: agriculture, extinguishing high-rise fires, patrolling, delivery of medicaments to hard-to-reach places etc.

This project, unlike other drone developments, is sponsored by a philanthropist. Usually, they are made thanks to donations of thousands of Ukrainians.
