Hybrid fixed wing drone goes at speeds of up to 100 kph

X PlusOne The Hybrid Fixed wing drone has come up with some Simple innovation to make Drones more and more faster.

 

I think the inspiration has come from Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey. But instead of having a tiltrotor here, we have the alternating speeds of brushless motors to tilt the drone 90 Degrees and effectively put in a flight position.

They are on Kickstarter trying to raise funds and have managed to reach 86% funding till now.

 

My only concern is, how can these be used for commercial purposes like, transporting stuff Or mounting cameras for shooting ?

Something that the team should think about.
