It hardly matters whether you purchase a DJI Mavic Air or any other drone there is some kind of noise present in it. This is one of the biggest problems in developed areas. One Canadian-based company Delson aeronautics Worked hard to find a solution.
We all know drones are innovating and growing rapidly. Drones are making our task easier regardless of any field whether it’s agriculture or Delivering work. Drone does their job perfectly. But when it’s done on a scale then it might create noise! All drone propellers cutting through the air make noise and that noise is quite annoying and disturbing which might create trouble.
What’s the solution?
The solution is provided by Delson Aeronautics (This company has been working hard on reducing drone noise and finally comes up with a solution). Here’s what they’ve shared on their website:
We find it inconceivable to think our current means of propulsion are the best we will ever create. If we are to truly realize the aerial future we envision, a fundamental change is required. We envision a future where aircraft soar so silently above they seem as if designed by nature, not human.This is because we believe the closer our technology represents the characteristics of nature, the better our future will be. Therefore, we have developed a novel series of ultra-quiet, high-thrust propulsion systems (patents pending), to truly enable new capabilities in clean aircraft design. Releasing the full potential of electric power.–Delson Aeronautics website
Although it may not provide complete silence we can’t deny that Delson Aeronautics has made excellent progress towards its goal of noise-free propellers. Does Wann hear the silence? Here’s the video:
Although these propellers might not able to provide pin-drop silence! But it’s just the beginning we may see more silent ones but it’s their first step towards the main goal of creating silent propellers.
Hers what Michael Deloyer( CEO of Drone aeronautics) says regarding potential:
(There are) Projected to be 2.2 million delivery drones by 2025 globally – with 274,000 being multi-rotors operating in urban environments in the US & Europe. Average retail of $3k per drone kit (propellers and motors for a hex) with just 5% market capture = $41 million revenue.

What’s their primary goal?
Our primary target is the drone delivery industry as this is where noise will be most critical. Military as a second. Cinematography as a third.

Will it have an impact on efficiency?
Propellers are mainly designed for efficiency. Their size, structure, weight, and overall aerodynamics play an important role in flight time and thurst. So there is no doubt that if something will change: it will surely have an effect on something. Here’s what Michael says about efficiency:
Currently, the blades are operating at 4-8% less efficient. This drone specifically tested 41 min. hover with standard (APC MR series) 18″ blades, and 38.5 min. hover with the Delson 18″ blades. The only variable being the blades used. We will be testing against T-Motor blades shortly, though the results will be very similar. We are confident we can close this gap with our improved production blades.

We can’t deny the note that this something that the market needs. And it will have a great positive impact on delivering sector. Would you prefer to take your order on a noisy drone or a quieter one? Do express your opinion in the comments section below.
