Game of Drones Kickstarter Announced

The Sumo Quad Action Sports Drone Airframe by Game of Drones


This unique airframe is designed from the ground up to resist damage due to crashes, water landings, extreme impacts and even gunfire.  Whether you are a novice pilot or an experienced aerial dogfighter, this airframe will stand up to the toughest abuse and keep flying - AND it works with virtually any flight electronics & gear - DJI, 3D Robotics, Hobby King and more.  Kickstarter Launching Jan 13, 2014

The Sumo Action-Sports quad may not be the first airframe you buy, but it will probably be the last.

    Very nice entrepreneurial initiative. Go for it and lots of success!

    Nice job! I wish you the best of luck with kickstarter. Drop me a line if you need any advice:-)
  • Here is a better pic of our airframe, but this is still just a prototype.  We're mixing high and low tech pretty well.  This version has DJI motors, 4-in-one ESC and a APM 2.5 flight board.  We're also using several materials commonly found at hardware and auto-part stores, including zip-ties, drain caps and vehicle trim.

  • This is pretty kool.

    Tough machine.

    One thing I hope you will add is some optional rotor covers (like the parrot drone). To make the blades less likely to hurt someone. I think this is a feature missing in many drones on market. The ability to clip on a protective ring around the blades if desired. Especially if working low altitude , maybe amongst people or inside an enclosed area.



  • Good luck guys! I'm unreasonably excited about this airframe! Can't wait to fly it around with my iPad!

  • Finally!!! YAY..


  • We've been developing our airframe for about a year now.  It's gone through many different materials, shapes and sizes as we've honed in on the features that we most wanted in a UAV airframe - near indestructibility, works with any flight gear, can be repaired and flying within a few minutes using common materials and minimal tools.  We love the Aquacopter, but decided that we don't need ours to be waterproof - the ability to fend off a barrage of paintballs and keep airborne was our goal. However it CAN be made waterproof with some very easy after-market mods.  We'll post a video of that project in the next few weeks.  Meanwhile check out all our build and R&D videos HERE:

  • I am pulling for you guys, I loved your presentation in Sebastapol.  

  • Congrats!  I'm working on a Low cost 3D Printer that I hope to get up on kickstarter in a couple months.

    Good Luck!,

  • Sorry for the critique (maybe your picture is just an example or visualization (?) but this frame looks exactly like this Helios 400 in this ridiculous video
