I have been hearing a lot of buzz about this drone technology for the last couple of days. This is a drone developed by an Australian Company named DefendTex.
What is cool about this drone is that you can launch it with your M320 Grenade launcher, which can be lethal to your enemies in combat.
Once you fire shot in the air, Ancillary DefendTex Drone D40 will transform itself into a quadcopter.
This programmable drone can be used for many purposes, opening up different opportunities. Below are some of the payload options that you can go for.
- Anti-Armor Charge
- Fuel-Air Bomb
- Other Explosives
According to the company, this drone tech is very cost-efficient, considering its advanced features. It uses advanced ISR munition technology and can be used for an observation mission.
- Maneuvering Flight Time: 12 mins
- Observation Time: 20mins
Defendtex Drone 40 Features
Advanced AI Technology
According to several sources, the armed defendtex D40 drone can be linked with other drones and swarm attacks. It will have a devastating effect on the enemy.
We don’t know yet how this sync will happen, but this tech will be very useful for defense forces if it does. There are also blade nano drones available in the market, which you can use for recreation purposes.
We only have seen the glimpse till now, and we don’t know the price tag. Whether it would be available for the public or not? But, according to the company claims, it is very economical.
Various Other Options: The company has also made the drones from 12 gauge shotguns and mortars of 81mm.
There is no certainty as such until now; we only have to wait to see what other options are available by the company. But, it would be cool to see the tech like this available in multiple formats.
Flight Duration & Range
As it is getting launched in the air by the launcher itself, no battery power is consumed in its take-off, allowing it to have a better flight time.
It gives you the 20mins of loitering and 12mins of flight time, which is decent considering its capability of carrying the different payloads.
Apart from having a decent flight time, it also gives you long-range access, around 10km.
As these kinds of drones are mostly used in defense technology, having a good range like this changes the game. For more information, you can visit here.
Different Payload Options
You can change the payload options with the drone. You can use the camera, smoke, fuel-air, smoke, Counter-UAS, and much more. It allows you to use this tech at your disposal. A single drone can serve multiple purposes.
What is unique about this tech is that it can be used with several other drones and attack the enemy in a group as a swarm.

FAQs (Must Read)
Apart from buying this tech, where else, I need to invest?
You have to buy the grenade launcher as well.
Would it be available for the public or only for Defence purposes?
For both, probably.
Instead of launching it through the grenade launcher, why can’t we let it fly by itself?
Then, the battery would be consumed in taking off against the earth’s gravity, which will decrease the flight time and range.
Do we have any drones under $40?
This is one of the best quadcopters under $40 in 2020.
