Amazon PrimeAir Octo uses Lumenier FX4006-13 Motors
We're excited to see that Amazon has chosen Lumenier FX-4006-13 multi-rotor motors for their new Octo delivery service R&D project -- Amazon PrimeAir.
Amazon has recently been working on a top secret project, which they just released information to the public on December 1st, 2013. During the research and development at Amazon, they decided to use the new Lumenier FX4006-13 mulit-rotor motors in their prototype Octocopters.
From Amazon Prime Air:
"We're excited to share Prime Air — something the team has been working on in our next generation R&D lab.
The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers' hands in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles.
Putting Prime Air into commercial use will take some number of years as we advance the technology and wait for the necessary FAA rules and regulations.
