Our Take on the Y6S

The Y6S is Autonomous Flight's main project -  and its slated to make its first flight by the end of 2018 - so keep a close eye on this company. The Y6S features a robust design, and the performance figures given by the Autonomous Flight website seem reasonable in comparison with what is possible with today's technology. Autonomous has attracted a reasonable amount of media attention, and also has reasonable financial backing.
