Hawk 30 is an unmanned aerial vehicle with 10 electric motors and can fly at an altitude of 20 kilometers. A lot of things are not known about the car except for these details.

Hawk 30 will not be the first drone with huge dimensions. The previous prototype of AeroVironment, Helios, was a vehicle with wingspan wider than 747. The vehicle, which began flying at high altitude in 2001, could not withstand the turbulence after more than 2 years, and was torn down and crashed into the ocean. Facebook has a similar vehicle development project. The company aims to provide internet connection to remote areas by using drone with Aquila project. Google also tried the SkyBender system in 2016. This system was later replaced by balloons and the Loon project of Alphabet.

This concept seems to have not been successful so far, but it is also known that technology companies have learned quickly from their mistakes. Perhaps they are planning to regain the goodness of Samuel Beckett and to renew and renew better.
