This is the video of first fly test

Dear Friends,
with great pleasure we present the latest developments of the prototype # 1 of our first drone RTF.

The idea for this drone , began when Carlo a student of the faculty of Industrial Design in Milan came to us to do his thesis ... we tried to think of something completely new and that it was not the classic drone MK or DJI 450.

In addition to the aesthetic aspect ,appreciated by the community, we have especially tried to make the drone in a very functional, easy to maintain, expandable with options which will be released in the future.
The frame initially was made with 3D printing, combined with inserts from epoxy glass and carbon fiber .

Our designer Carlo ... ,now officially came into VRI , with Flavio studied the FEM of the drone to achieve a good level of resistance to twisting of the drone. Particular attention was held for the theme of the vibrations.

    It looks like maybe the arms are easily detachable and replaceable?  I like that feature.

  • nice.

  • looks cool,

       interesting design  :)

  • Very angular and aggressive styling where I especially like the underslung rear legs/rudder elements.
