    Though many people immediately associate unmanned drones with military use,they have incredible potential to be used in a wide variety of peaceful and scientific applications. In addition to delivering supplies to disaster-stricken areas, drones could be used to gather information about things like weather and wildlife.

    really nice blog, new ideas are comming up, lightweight solar cells will harvest the power of the sun during daylight, while it will rely on battery power to keep its two propellers turning during the night.
    Thank you for the information.

    Google’s solar powered drone is a great project. Their another project Loon also uses solar cells and a battery storage device as the only sole source powering its balloons.

  • suchitra

    It’s a brilliant idea, solar panels on a drone so it doesn’t need a battery. Without a battery, you could fly a drone as long as the sun keeps shining. Thanks for the blog
