How about a mini-drone first?

Updated: Jan 14, 2020

We are building a small drone with the same proportions as the big one. The reason is that we need a platform to test all the hardware and software that will equip the full size aircraft. We think it makes perfect sense, because in the end, the flight controller with gyros, accelerometers and GPS will be the same. We also need to start practicing controlling drone, for our manned flight. Now I found a better use for my Mavic 2 Pro!

Mauro: We expect something around 10 minutes, but we will have a better estimate in a couple months, after running the motors.

Jeanette, don't worry, we are aware that safety is very important. That's why we will fly sand bags before ourselves. When everything is fine, then we will go.. It's going to take the time as necessary. No rush, it's a hobby project, thus we don't have a deadline.
