The MA Drone 3 is a multi-purpose UAV with large and easily configurable payload bay, and can be folded to 1/3rd of its flight size for easy transport.
This Malloy Aeronautics drone is an almost identical 1/3rd scale model of the new quadcopter design for the full-sized (manned) Hoverbike and was built and test-flown before we even began work on the full-sized Hoverbike. It was originally created to test various elements of the new full scale prototype that we are now building.
Our drone has safety as its central feature. The ducting around the fans protects people or objects from being damaged by the spinning blades, and the blades themselves are protected from damage.
This drone is shipped with the latest PixHawk flight controller. And is tuned, flight tested and ready to fly. All you need to do is bind this to your favorite radio. If you do not have one, we can recommend a couple of models we think are great to start with.
Please see our Drone 3 User Manual for instructions on use and about this product.
This standard “bind-and-fly” 1/3 Hoverbike drone will be delivered with:
- 1x Frame
- 4x Motors
- 4x Propellers
- 4x ESC
- 2x Battery (6Ahr)
- 1x Flight Controller (Pixhawk)
- 1x Macro Micro board & built in LED lights
- Fully assembled and flight tested (just need to bind to your own radio)
If you have never flown a multicopter before, we highly recommend purchasing a small drone to practice with first (the Hubsan X4 is great to start with). We designed this 1/3rd scale Hoverbike to be safe and robust, however without rc experience you will be sure to fly your brand new Hoverbike into the ground on the first day and there are practical limits to how strong we can make this!
