That little quadcopter of yours may be fine for shooting cool videos, but when it comes to industrial applications, a beefier drone is often required. That's where the Acecore Noa comes in, as it can lift up to 20 kg (44 lb).

Manufactured by Dutch firm Acecore Technologies, the Noa is a hexacopter featuring six 28-inch (711-mm) reinforced carbon fiber propellers and a carbon monocoque frame. In order to keep the rain out, its six motors are mounted upside-down (i.e: pointing downwards). As a result, it can reportedly fly in downpours of up to 9 mm (0.4 in) per hour. Additionally, its hollow propeller arms are designed to facilitate a cooling airflow throughout the aircraft. This system lets it remain in use at ambient temperatures as high as 50 ºC (122 ºF).
