About Us

Gadfin develops fast, hydrogen-powered drones with a quiet signature for long-range urgent deliveries and preventative maintenance missions. Our patented technologies redefine delivery capabilities in terms of flight radius, safety, reliability and automation. Among Gadfin's drones is Spirit-One, a long-range delivery drone for 3-6 kg (6-13 lb) payloads that, for the first time, enables effective delivery of medical and other time-critical supplies at low cost.

As a result of extensive research, attention to customers' needs, and our original motivation – a clean, connected future –  Gadfin's drones have been designed with the highest safety standards in mind and an emphasis on reliability. Gadfin's novel folding wing technology can withstand wind and dire weather and its mechanisms for reducing rotor drag enable a smooth flight.

Gadfin's team consists of a combination of unmanned technology specialists, traditional aviation engineers, and designers – all working with the aim of creating drones with enhanced aviation capabilities at low cost. We invite you to take part in a future that can transform industries and provide people with the supplies they need, wherever they are.


Imagine medical facilities in every corner of the globe connected, all the time, with medical supply always there when you need it; at remote locations exactly like in city centers, bridging between islands, crossing countries, and mountains, re-defining the old ways of logistics, saving lives, on a daily basis.

Imagine railways in the sky delivering daily, thousands of goods from peer to peer, day and night, rain or shine, safely, quietly and reliably like never seen before.

We are here, now, equipped with the best technology, which is developed in-house by our unmanned systems experts, creating solid IP, and determined to really make it happen!

We warmly invite you to join us, now, so that together we can create this exciting and thrilling future that is already here.
