The official presentation of VR Spark 350 will take place at DroneShow Ferrara 28/29 March 2015.
The latest revisions of VR Spark 350, currently undergoing certification, will be presented on a confidential basis to some selected beta testers at the 2015 FIAPR convention.
VR Spark 350 was born after a year full of experiments, where we worked on improving electronic technologies, mechanical design, usability for end user and the possibility to be used for commercial purposes respecting regulation rules that govern the use of drones in the civil aviation world.
We implemented control systems and flight termination to ensure compliance with the Italian and French rules and to achieve high levels of safety and reliability. It has a maximum take off weigh under 1.6 Kg. (3.4 pounds) to take advantage of the imminent FAA and European regulations that will enable smaller drones to fly in restricted areas.
We are currently undergoing experimentation to achieve Italian and French approval for commercial use, and plan to start selling in April.
VR Spark 350 main applications are:
- low budget filmography.
- safety and rescue.
- Video inspection .
- Marketing (drones branded for promotion - delivery -)
- Automatic features as follow me through VR platform Leash. (Action Sports)
- Training schools for professional pilots.
- Suitable for drones startups company and research projects (eg H2020).
This multi role machine aims to enter as a protagonist in the business services using drones.
It has all the features to aspire to be the Italian answer to the Chinese DJI Phantom. The semplicity and portability of a DJI Phantom, but with so many more payload options and flexibility!

It is thanks to the work of a large community made up of people with great competence, passion and technological skill that this project has seen the light.
Thanks to Virtualrobotix and the APM:Copter DEV team which has done an excellent job bringing this platform to high levels that was, in its infancy, within the reach of only a few experts.
Now after extensive work on the simplification and usability, so many more professionals can enjoy the flexibility and power of this platform.
