See It In Action

Made For Researchers & Developers

Designed to implement novel control algorithms, test and validate them efficiently.

Safe collision-free environment

Different types of drones can be attached to perform flight test safely. Tune your orientation controller before an accident occurs. You can install this in a classroom to teach students the use and control of UAVs.

Angular position measurement

High-resolution magnetic encoders to measure roll, pitch and yaw angles with high precision and no drift at all. Slip-rings allows absolute free rotation in the 3 DOF. Also, the encoders can be replaced with motors to simulate external forces.

High quality materials and electronics

Light and strong carbon fiber, reducing extra weight to the vehicle. The system can be connected to MATLAB/ Simulink or any other platform, we provide you tools and support.

Product Details

  • Compatible with different types of multi-rotors, and sizes, from 100mm to 300mm rotor to rotor distance.
  • Three degrees of freedom about the main axes, roll, pitch and yaw angles.
  • Slip rings that allows free rotation about any of the Euler angles.
  • High-resolution magnetic absolute encoders, with multiple turns.
  • Mechanically balanced design, reducing any disturbance in the rotation dynamics.
  • High-quality materials like aluminum alloys and carbon fiber parts, strong and light to minimize extra weight and inertia added to the vehicle dynamics.
  • Sensing and control operation from MATLAB / Simulink.
  • The motors can be driven by current or voltage, so torque, rotation speed or angular position control could be implemented.
  • Fully documented systems models and parameters.
  • Robust and heavy-duty machined components.
  • External aluminum frame, that can be customizable.
