A drone is made up of a frame and a fuselage. The fuselage is connected to the frame by protracting beyond the frame. The fuselage is comprised of a front and back panel and a bottom panel. The front panel is placed at an angle between the bottom panel of fuselage and top surface of frame. The first wing is joined to the frame through being opposite the second wing. The first and second wings extend from opposite sides of the frame. First and second mounting members are attached to the frame. They extend outwardly on opposite sides. There are a variety of power generators that are available. Each is connected to the first or the last mounting member. Each power generator comes with an energy source connected to the propeller.
Drones are gaining popularity due to their versatility and capability to be utilized in a myriad of applications. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are drones that can be utilized for aerial photography and the delivery of goods, military operations, security, surveillance, inspections of infrastructure, and even science. The range of designs for drones can be vast and could be categorized according to configuration, engine type and their operational function. It is possible to have fixed winged, flapping-wing, ornithopters, as well as a mixture of both. You can choose from jet engine, internal combustion or rotary engines. Electric engines, piston engines, or piston engines are all options. Small drones generally make use of lithium-polymer batteries, while larger drones make use of hydrogen fuel cells. The design could permit it to be used to provide wireless communication to users and subscribers.
New technologies are required to provide broadband access to the equipment of users at home and at work since the volume of traffic on the internet has increased. Cellular communication systems are well established in the field. A typical cellular system divides the ageographic area into series regions which are referred to as cells. Each cell is then served by an underlying station. The base station provides two-way communications to fixed and mobile subscribers who are located throughout the cell. Theantennas are often installed on a tower or some other raised structure, with the beam of antenna produced by each antenna pointing inwards to service the entire cell or a segment of the cell like a wedge-shaped portion of the cell. Theantenas provide 360-degree coverage (omnidirectional) across the azimuth and elevation planes. This covers the intended zone. Cellular communications are not accessible in remote locations, and may not bepractical for subscribers who, as while in an aircraft or vehicle, travels at high speed.
Geosynchronous satellites, commonly referred to as the latest technology, are located in space, approximately 22,000 miles away from earth. They are utilized for various purposes, including voice communication and Internet. Geosynchronous satellites are very costly and difficult to set up. Another example of a satellite for communications is Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites. To ensure satellite communications, it’s essential to possess thousands of LEO satellites. LEO satellites orbit Earth at 350km to 1,000km above the surface. Because LEO satellites orbit earth in a continuous manner, many LEO satellites will be needed to service the entire area. LEO satellites have a high price for hardware costs and installation. The further away from the satellite is more than the power needed to transmit.
The drone that was disclosed has frames with three sections: a front, center and rear section. A fuselage is attached to a bottom portion of the center section of the frame extending away from the frame. The fuselage has an upper and a lower panel. The fuselage’s bottom panel and the bottom panel are set at an angle. The front panel is located between the bottom part of the fuselage and the bottom of the frame. The first wing is located in the opposite direction to the second. The first and second wings are connected to the central section of the frame. The frames’ first and second wings are oriented to the outside. The first mounting member is attached to the front section of the frame and extends outwardly from opposite sides of the front section of the frame. A second mounting member that is connected to the rear portion of the frame, extends outwardly away from the rear section. A plurality of power generators are contained, and each power generator system is coupled to the first mount member or the second mounting member. Each power generator is comprised of the power source connected to a propeller and driving the propeller. The propeller is fitted with a propeller axis of rotation, and the propeller rotates between a first orientation and a second orientation. The second orientation is perpendicular with the first orientation.
A drone is disclosed and comprises a frame as well as a fuselage that is attached to the bottom edge of the frame, which extends from the frame. The fuselage comprises two panels: a front and as an underside panel. The front panel of the fuselage is located in an angle between its bottom surface and the bottom panel.

What is a patent?
Granted by the government to protect an invention patents grant the inventor exclusive rights to develop, utilize, market and promote the invention? society benefits when a innovative technology is introduced into the marketplace. These benefits could be directly realized as people can achieve previously unattainable feats or via the economic opportunities that innovation provides (business growth, employment).
Patent protection is sought out by many pharmaceutical companies and university researchers for their research and development. A patent can cover the physical or abstract nature of a product or process, or a method or formulation of material that are new to the area. To be granted patent protection, an invention must be useful, new, and not obvious to others in the same field.
Patents reward inventors who have commercially successful inventions. They act as an incentive for inventors to come up with new ideas. Small companies and inventors can be certain that they will receive a return on their investment in technology development through patents. They could earn a decent income through their work.
Businesses that have the capacity to:
Secure your products and services
Increase the value, appearance, and visibility of your products market;
Make your company and products stand out from the rest;
Access to business and technical knowledge and information;
Avoid the risk of accidentally making use of proprietary content created by third parties or losing valuable information, innovative outputs, or any other creative output.
Patents effectively transform the inventor’s knowledge into a marketable asset, which creates new opportunities for job creation and business growth by licensing or joint ventures.
Small businesses that have patent protection will be more attractive to investors involved in the commercialization and development of technology.
Patenting can generate fresh ideas and innovative inventions. This information could be patent-worthy.
Patents can be used as an obstacle to unscrupulous third parties profiting from the invention’s success.
The profits from technology patents that are successful and commercially viable can be used to fund technological research and development (R&D) that will increase the chance of better technology in the near future.

Interested in finding more similar patents? These are the steps:
1. Think of terms to describe your invention based upon the purpose, composition and use.
Begin by writing down a concise detailed description of your idea. Do not use generic terms such as “device”, “process” or “system”. Instead, consider synonyms to the terms you initially chose. Next, take note of important technical terms, as well as key words.
To help you recognize keywords and concepts, use the following questions.
- What’s the goal of this invention? Is it a utilitarian device or an ornamental design?
- Does the invention consist of a method of creating something or performing a function? Does it constitute a product?
- What is the nature and purpose of the invention? What is the physical composition of the invention?
- What is the goal of this invention?
- What are the technical terms and keywords that describe an invention’s nature? To help you find the correct terms, consult an online dictionary of technical terms.
2. Use these terms to find relevant Cooperative Patent Classifications at the Classification Text Search Tool. If you’re not able to locate the appropriate classification to describe your invention, look through the classification’s class Schemas (class schedules) and then try again. Think about substituting the words that you’ve used to describe your invention if you fail to get any results from your Classification Text Search with synonyms similar to the words you used in the first step.
3. Review the CPC Classification Definition to verify the accuracy of the CPC classification that you have found. The link to a CPC classification definition will be available in the event that the title of the classification has a blue box that includes “D” to the left. CPC classification definitions will help you determine the applicable classification’s scope so that you can choose the most appropriate. The definitions could also contain search tips or other suggestions which could prove useful in further research.
4. The Patents Full-Text Database and the Image Database allow you to retrieve patent documents that include the CPC classification. You can review and select the most relevant patent publications focusing first on the abstract and drawings representative of.
5. This list of patent publication is the most appropriate to examine for similarity to your idea. Be sure to read the claims and specifications. Refer to the applicant and patent examiner for additional patents.
6. Find patent applications published in the public domain using the CPC classification you selected in Step 3 of the Applications Full-Text and Image Database. You can also use the same method of search that you used in step 4 to limit your search results to the most relevant patent applications by reviewing the abstracts and drawings on every page. Then, you must carefully review the patent applications that have been published and pay particular attention to the claims as well as additional drawings.
7. You can look up additional US patent publications using keyword searching in AppFT or PatFT databases, and also the classification search of patents that are not issued in the United States as per below. Additionally, you can make use of search engines on the internet to find non-patent literature disclosures about inventions. Here are a few examples:
- Add keywords to your search. Keyword searches may turn up documents that are not well-categorized or have missed classifications during Step 2. For example, US patent examiners often supplement their classification searches with keyword searches. Think about the use of technical engineering terminology rather than everyday words.
- Search for foreign patents using the CPC classification. Then, re-run the search using international patent office search engines such as Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s worldwide patent publication database of over 130 million patent publications. Other national databases include:
- European Patent Office (EPO) provides esp@cenet to access a network of Europe’s patent databases with access to machine translation of European patents.
- Japan Patent Office (JPO) – with access to machine translations of Japanese patents.
- World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) offers PATENTSCOPE with a full-text search of published international patent applications and machine translations for some documents, as well as a list of international patent databases.
- Korean Intellectual Property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS)
- State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) with machine translation of Chinese patents.
- Other International Intellectual Property Offices with online patent databases include Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Israel, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and Taiwan.
- Search non-patent literature. Inventions can be made public in many non-patent publications. It is recommended that you search journals, books, websites, technical catalogs, conference proceedings, and other print and electronic publications.
To review your search, you can hire a registered patent attorney to assist. A preliminary search will help one better prepare to talk about their invention and other related inventions with a professional patent attorney. In addition, the attorney will not spend too much time or money on patenting basics.
