After years of development, I can finally announce the project I've been working on... the NanoQ Copter and Mimix Controller.  It's a tilt-controlled, palm-sized, quad with multi-team aerial gaming.  We've just launched it on Kickstarter, so checkout the video of it flying at!

Now for some specs...

NanoQ Copter Specs

  • Size - 5.25" from motor to motor
  • Weight - 35 Grams
  • Batteries - Single Cell Lithium Polymer
  • Battery Charger - Dual Port, USB Compatible
  • Flight Time - 8-10 mins
  • Range - 30+ meters (RF digital comms)
  • Max Payload - 10 grams (does effect flight time)

Mimix Controller Specs:

  • Designed for Ease of Use, Ergonomics, and Aesthetics
  • One Handed Control
  • Works in both left and right hands
  • Battery - USB Rechargable Lithium Polymer
  • Operating time - 3-4 hours

I'm opening up both our RF Digital Communications Protocol, Onboard Serial Protocol, and the IR Gaming Protocol for people to make their own add-ons, modify the controls, and stream back telemetry.  There will also a USB radio dongle so you can send and receive messages from your computer.

There's lots additional information on our webpage (, so take a look.  I'd be glad to answer any questions!
