Ucandrone - a UAS & 3DR Pit-Stop in Europe


UcanDrone, founded on January 2013, is specialized in the area of UAV and remote airmodelling, in the meaning of design, construction and flight of the airplane models. Working as a team for many years with great experience of applied research in the field of geographic information systems, development of forestry maps and aerial photography, motivated us to deal professionally with the field of UAV's and more specific Civil Applications.

Since the very beginning, our research included several tests of automated flight control systems, until the introduction of Ardupilot first generation. It was very clear for us that there was the beginning of a new philosophy in the design of the automated flight control systems. In this context we wish to inform and get closer to the people, scientists or professionals, who are interested in this field, the CIVIL UAV's technology, which will make easier and enrich artistically their science or their profession as well as their hobby.

We hope, that scientists, students, professionals and of course hobbyists will find a great variety of services and products.

Main fields: 

  • Forestry
  • Precision Agriculture
  • Tailor made UAS
  • Remote Sensing
  • Environment
  • UAS components


We are proud to be part of the evolving DIYDrone’s community and recently 3DR Distributors.

We would like to thank:
-3DRobotics, for their confidence, support and guidance.
-All the users and costumers that supported us to our first steps.
-Dave Buckley, for his beautiful Arduplane/copter illustrations

Might i recommend that you provide some reasonable shipping rates to Europe (inc Switzerland) for APM modules. 3DR are prohibitively expensive in this regard.


When will you have stock btw? I need a APM2.5 with ublox, XT60 power module and EU telemetry.

Oh, and please mark your prices without VAT as well please (I pay the Swiss VAT locally).

That plane looks very nice.

If this is a real project then please fill in your terms & conditions.

Common guys, if you want to be taken serieus then make your project look at least a little bit more professional.

I think Techpod is quite similar in performance, i.e 2 hours flight time, downward looking camera mount ect. But this plane is build from composite material which add the value.

-Hi Euan, Switzerland just added, thank you. More Shipping methods will be added in the next few days.

Regarding VAT: Since Council Directive 2006/112/EC of 28 November 2006 on the common system of value added tax, that you find here, we have to VAT our goods for EU and non EU exports. Our e-commerse system automaticaly applies the correct tax from your billing address, at the check out proccess. We are expecting our new batcH from 3DR in about a week.

-Thanks Russkel, Apostolos -our Manufacturer- made a special post with many many info!! 

-Nice catch Wim, Thanks you! We just realized why our eng speaking friends say "its all greek to me" :) Our consultants fixing the translations as we speak!  We take legislation issues seriously, but we are makers not writers,  We first tried to make a map interpreting the greek legistlation to help our friends and coleages fly and then follow commerce rules.

- Thanks Keeyen. Techpod is an excelent example of foam usage and modular design, thats why we backed Waine and hopefully we will fly soon our TP. Phoreas materials, construction methods and design, was picked carefully for harsh terrain and especialy for mapping. check out the blog post i mention above

I visited your site but seems completely empty ( no products found whatever the selected category) except the few products in highlights. Is this a temp isuue?

Btw - your registration form isn't working. It won't accept my password - even though it easily meets the "between 3 and 20 character" requirement.
