It is ten years since the first ready-to-fly drone was launched, but recent launches from have shown us that the next ten years may well be as exciting. Zero Zero Robotics is certainly starting the new decade with a camera drone with a big difference. It is not a quadcopter, and not really a multicopter in the usual sense... the V-Copter Falcon has just two propellers.

The folding gull-wing design of this bi-copter give the V-Copter Falcon drone a distinctly futuristic look... looking like a cross between a Back to the Future DeLorean, a Star Wars spaceship, and a bird of prey.

The specs of the drone look impressive, with a promised 50 minute flight time, a 7km range,  and a 1/2.3in 12 megapixel camera that provides 4K footage from a three-axis gimbal.

The V-Copter Falcon is expected to go on sale from February and will retail for $999.
