Former Formula One driver Nico Rosberg is on the jury in the German TV show "The Lion's Den“. His portfolio company, Volocopter GmbH, has developed the "VoloDrone". This is an electrically powered cargo drone that was specially developed for transport tasks in a wide range of industrial applications. In order to be able to fulfil this demanding task, the drone is mainly made of aluminium.

The VoloDrone is driven by 18 rotors and has a diameter of 9.2 m. It has a fully electric drive with replaceable lithium-ion batteries and can thus complete a flight time of up to 30 minutes. The drone is scheduled to be launched on the market within the next five years.
