Li Chen, executive vice-president of the civil aviation research institute of Northwestern Polytechnical University, said the drone's off-road tires allow it to take off and land on various terrains, from grass to sand and stones.

"It can also take off and land on short runways and can conduct supply transport and airdrop missions," he said.
