Hi All.
Atlas Dynamics is proud to announce the launch of its first consumer drone, made in cooperation with Yi-technology. Our unique tricopter design and full carbon fiber hull create a new standard for quality and performance in the consumer drone space. We have reached a 40 min of flight time and have made some new features like Virtual Stick and one hand control.

Our App will be available for IPhone and Android devices. In the future we plan to release free app for IPhone and Android, so all APM users will be able to enjoy new features.
Also we have plan to release SDK for IPhone and Android platform, so everybody can make their own GCS apps easily.
We are going to make efforts to support all APM community and provide new software and hardware solutions.

Nice looking thing.  Do you have a website?  Google isn't finding it.

Found s nice YouTube vid. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HxbY6MOz7to

I like the look and optimization of this. Seems to have a downward lidar for terrain following. The only thing that would really help this is a limited yaw compensation pitch motor. I did not see one. And of course a phantom has some form obstacle avoidance to avoid human size objects.

It looks like a serious piece of engineering though. If you put a flir vue pro in that gimbal you may have something interesting. The seemingly open nature of this may make it interesting to adapt for other uses.

The consumer market is really tough. I wonder if this could not also be pitched at light industrial use? It seems to be much more adaptable for such a purpose, especially if it really can get 40 minutes of flight time--even 30 would be ok.

We finding investor to this project. They help us with mass production . Right now we have R&D team and company in Europe. And we made many modification to reach the highest goals.

Right now the website not available, we will release it day before InterDrone.

We work on computer vision and obstacle avoidance. It will be available in next version .We also working on Atlas Pro version .Its special version for industrial uses and carry special termo cameras like FLIR and others.

Ivan, I think the professional market may actually be better than the consumer market. It is almost impossible to compete with DJI and the something like a Phantom 4 (and others)-- although you do seem to have terrain following lidar so maybe it is better for action selfies. There is a growing market for light duty commercial drones though. You can do almost nothing to physically customize a Phantom 4 if the DJI SDK does not work for you. You seem to have a very nicely engineered package with Arducopter innards and a customizable app. Good luck.

@Ivan, this is only a 2-axis gimbal, right?

I think it would be cool if it instead would have a sort of mounting area for attaching whatever one wants, and if it would be offered/sold without that gimbal, at a correspondingly lower price

isn't it a problem that the GPS is below carbon level for a significant solid angle range?

Comment by Rob_Lefebvre on September 1, 2016 at 10:30am

Marc, I don't think the professional market is necessarily better.  If all you have is a basic quadcopter with a camera on it, there is just as much competition in that space, and corresponding race to the bottom on pricing.

Having a lidar rangefinder is at least a distinguishing feature.

In our first prototype version we use only 2-axis gimbal. In final version we made 3 axis gimbal with encoders . Also we made very easy to change the gimbal, and we made all parts easy to fix and you can change and update everything. Maybe for some user its will be black box, but the professional users can use the base for they own needs.
About the GPS, gps module location in plastic cover box , and we made special reflector to improve the signal. And we use active gps antenna .

Here is our Pro version of Erida. The difference: bigger battery , two gps modules and thermal camera. We working on ground station for this version.
