    Hi everyone ,

    I have some questions from this video..



    I'm not talking about the generation of hydrogen which is the first part of the video but I have some doubts at the last part of the video , He has a cylinder filled with hydrogen and it is connected to a hydrogen fuel cell , now my question is :

    1.Can we modify the Hydrogen Fuel Cell to power a bigger size electric motors for multirotors ?

    2.Can I use the same technique to power up my multirotor ?

    I'm not looking answers only for that questions stated above but also some explanations please.

    Thank you very much

    If by 'multirotor' you are referring to a rotary-wing aircraft then it's doubtful. However, a Raptor E1 fixed-wing drone powered by a hydrogen fuel cell has been flown.

    Okay thank you for the response , but whatever it is can I use the same technique it to power maybe a bigger electric motor with that hydrogen fuel cell modified a little bit ?

    I think you'd have to modify it a LOT! The motor shown is pretty feeble.

    Hydrogen based fuel cells were all the rage as the future for electric cars about a decade ago. Then they discovered just how difficult it is to store enough hydrogen to give you any range. Lithium Ion batteries are far more practical.
