ZM Interactive Unveils New xFold Drones With 1,000-Pound Capacity, Interchangeable Rotor Configurations, and Flight Times up to 8 Hours Under 55 LB
Public Demos of Heavy Cargo Delivery and Long-Distance Flights Will Take Place in January
ZM Interactive announced the latest in its line of xFoldTM drones – the strongest and most adaptable drones in the industry. xFoldTM drones are the only industrial unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) that can switch between x4 (quad), x6 (hexa), X8 (octo) and X12 (dodeca) configurations in minutes. The new xFoldTM Dragon can lift up to 1000 pounds, while the Dragon Hybrid boasts a flight time of 1.5 hours on battery and over 8 hours with a hybrid system.
It’s simple to customize the xFold drone to fit any mission: Pilots can swap configurations in minutes, including adding robotic arms for delivery, extinguisher ball droppers for fire fighting, sprayers for agriculture, or sensors for 3D mapping. The military grade commercial drones are designed, manufactured, built and assembled by ZMI in the USA, using proprietary components. ZMI does not use any Chinese components. The aircraft are weather resistant and made to fly in inclement conditions.
The xFoldTM line of Dragon super carrier drones includes five different sizes and capacities, guaranteeing there is an xFold drone suited for every flight operation and commercial mission. Payload for the five Dragon aircrafts include 100 pounds, 300 pounds, 500 pounds and 1,000 pounds.
“The xFold Dragons by ZMI are built to be the strongest, most adaptable aircraft on the market today,” said ZM Interactive CEO Ziv Maron. “We are constantly improving on our designs to make them suitable for every industry and every use. Our customers come to us with an idea and our technology continues to rise to the challenge – these capabilities are only the beginning and we have more exciting updates coming in 2021.”

Demos will be held in January 2021 in San Francisco and will feature heavy cargo delivery, including to offshore vessels, as well as long-distance operations and search-and-rescue operations.
