F-drones — a Singapore autonomous drone start-up — has won investment from Eastern Pacific Shipping and Schulte Group.

An Eastern Pacific-led seed ­capital funding exercise has also brought in other investors from Singapore and elsewhere in Asia.

With investors on board, F-drones said it can move ahead with developing its Hyperlaunch Heavy, a fully electric proprietary drone that is capable of delivering 100 kg payloads over a distance of 100 km (62 miles).
