Acrobatic serving tray The hexacopter serving tray can be used with or without the propeller protection. It was originally designed for the Digit 2015 conference in Trondheim, Norway. It can carry up to 1 kilo of payload and has a release mechanism underneath to carry and drop off goods mid-air. See it deliver a package or do a trick:   Delivering 800 gram apple watch (with release mechanism) on the stage at Girls and Technology conference in Trondheim, Norway Cake delivery - The Drone community Rotorklubben celebrating 300 members Mini serving tray  The idea is to hide the propeller as much...

Could it be powerful enough to transport a human being safely?  Technical drawings. Thanks to Nodin innovations for design help. We started with looking at various motors. Big propellers are scary so we decided to keep the size down as much as we could. We estimated some 170 kilograms of lifting force would be needed in total (EU regulations are now limiting us to 150). After playing...

The Megakopter - Behind the scenes of a record breaking drone

However, we learned the hard way that the location did indeed matter. For safety reasons and Murphy´s law worst case scenario, we decided to fly iside a pit, some 4 meters below the floor where the audience was...

Makeadrones byggeworkshop er unikt i norge og holdes på skoler, vitensentere og for private firma over hele landet. Kurset er utviklet og finpusset slik at det er mulig for både barn og voksne å bygge et quadkopter fra bunnen på kun noen timer. Henning Pedersen er en av landets mest erfarne dronebyggere og har blant annet jobbet med Megakopteret, verdens største radiostyrte multikopter, og selv utviklet byggesettet som brukes. Avansert kurs 500 grams quadkoptere bygges fra bunnen av. Kursene tar 4-6 timer og passer opp til 20 barn og voksne som er interessert i teknologi. På kurset lærer du blant annet om:...
