Title: IN-FLIGHT BATTERY CHANGING METHOD FOR MULTICOPTERS, SUPPLY-SIDE MULTICOPTER, AND SUPPLIED-SIDE MULTICOPTER
Abstract:
An in-flight battery changing method for multicopters according to an aspect of the present invention is provided with: a first step of securing a supply path for supplying a battery between both multicopters while both a supply-side multicopter holding a battery to be supplied and a supplied-side multicopter, to which the battery is to be supplied, are flying; a second step in which the supply-side multicopter supplies, through the supply path, the supplied-side multicopter with the battery to be supplied; a third step in which the supplied-side multicopter receives the battery to be supplied that is supplied from the supply-side multicopter; and a fourth step in which the supplied-side multicopter replaces the mounted battery, which is mounted thereon, with the battery to be supplied that is received from the supply-side multicopter.
