Children were especially interested in taking photos with the helicopters.

The startup’s Director, Mr. Adarsh, announced plans to enter the logistics market, targeting both the e-commerce and defense sectors with their advanced helicopters and drones. “We received a strong response from the defence sector, which provided us with several requirements that we have already begun addressing,” the Director stated.

Chakra version 1.0 helicopter can carry 4 kg of cargo for 45 minutes at a speed of 60 km/h. Another variant of version 1.0 can lift 10 kg and fly for 90 minutes, both of which are battery-powered. Chakra version 2.0, a petrol-powered model, can lift 6 kg and travel 60 km in 40 minutes. A newly developed petrol-powered helicopter can lift 10 kg and fly for 120 minutes at 60 km/h.

Adarsh highlighted the significance of these helicopters in government operations and emergency situations. “These UAV helicopters are essential in logistics, especially for transporting medicines during crises like the COVID-19 outbreak. They are also being used in various hilly states, including Manipur and Nagaland, flying at altitudes of 3000 to 4000 meters with GPS monitoring for precise tracking.”
