Boeing first experienced CAV cargo drone outdoors

The CAV weighs 498 kg and is capable of carrying up to 227 kg of cargo. The drone is 6.1 m long,

During previous tests, the drone was tiedcables to the floor in a Boeing test hangar located in Missouri. At the first stage of testing, this allows you to save the device in case of loss of control or emergency situations.

According to the company, during the test, the drone performed a vertical take-off, hung in the air, and then flew to a given point and landed.
