2018 – DronoBox

The DronoBox workshop is specially designed so that anyone can build a complete drone in barely an hour! The parts are edited in such a way that no soldering is required and participants only need to use their hands and screwdrivers to fully build it, like an IKEA package! You can contact us for the possibilities of receiving a DronoBox workshop.

Other projects

We participate in many research projects to develop unique drone solutions, from forest scanning to sustainable airships.
