There is a new contender in town: the Dutch drone racing frame DRUID One!
The DRUID One is the first frame that I finalized after several prototyping rounds with the Dutch drone community.
You can now order a DRUID One. There are several add-ons available as well. Shipping starts in a few weeks.
This drone racing frame is designed for performance, durability and style.
All the necessary electronics for a state of the art racing drone will fit and are well protected by the TPU Pod.
I’ve chosen Armattan Productions to manufacture all the carbon fiber parts. Their CF and excellent milling service make the racing frame and spare parts of excellent quality and affordable too.
