Megacopter is a Norwegian civilian, multifunctional unmanned aerial vehicle, designed by specialists from the University of Bergen.

Megacopter unmanned aerial vehicle is an experimental drone, the main purpose of which is the transportation of cargoes up to 61 kilogram weight, but among other things this aircraft can perform other tasks, for example, in the industrial sector, aerial photography and aerial photography of the terrain, monitoring missions. Despite this fact, the unmanned aerial vehicle was never launched into mass production, and today it exists only in triplicate.

The Norwegian Megacopter unmanned aerial vehicle was designed in a multi-copter configuration, while the design of this drone is nothing more than a few combined drones that can be operated both together and separately. One of the drawbacks of this UAV is its massive construction, however, thanks to this, the drone can raise up to 61 kilograms, which also caused the device to be added to the book by the Guinness record. Autonomy of the flight of this device is relatively small, and when fully loaded it is only 18 minutes.

The Megacopter multifunctional experimental unmanned aerial vehicle is equipped with 48 electric motors, which allow the device to develop a maximum speed of flight at 18 km / h.
