MIT’s latest drone propellers are very quiet and efficient

Posted by in category: drones

They consist of two blades looping together so that the tip of one blade curves back into the other.

The MIT Lincoln lab has produced some new devices for aircraft and drones that make some impressive efficiency gains and are radically quieter.

“The toroidal propeller allows a small multirotor unpiloted aircraft, or drone, to operate more quietly than current drones that use propeller forms unchanged since the beginning of aviation,” said a statement by the lab.
