    Solar Panel

    Actually it's a Photovoltaic laser power receiver. One of the benefits of leveraging off the shelf tech is that we can duplicate it for others. Hang this on your own quad copter, shine a bunch of mirrors at it and set your own record. 20% efficient cells that can tolerate 3 to 4 times concentrated sunshine produce 50 to 80 watts of power in sunshine. All while weighing just 160 grams.
