M Interactive (ZMI) recently announced the
latest addition to its line of xFoldTM drones.
What makes the xFold TM drones unique is that
they are the only industrial unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) on the market that can switch between
x4 (quad), x6 (hexa), X8 (octo) and X12 (dodeca)
configurations in a matter of 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 relatively 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 xFold TM 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 is suitable for a range of commercial, industrial, military and emergency-response
applications. Customers already using the xFold
Dragon include Dynatics, NASA JPL, Livermore
Labs, Israel Defence Force, US Military, USDA,
police and fire departments, as well as Bell Helicopter, which was granted FAA Experimental
Registration on multiple xFold aircrafts in 2019.
xFold Dragons are currently being used in a
number of countries including the US, Canada,
Mexico, Europe, Asia, Africa and Israel.
ZM Interactive (ZMI) develops and manufactures the xFold drone and provides drone services for government, industrial and pro level cinematography. Based in San
Francisco, xFold drones are manufactured in the USA, and
ZMI is a U.S Government approved vendor.
