Paid drone assembly


#1

Hello,

I’m looking for a drone hardware store with some knowledgeable and handy technical people that will assemble a Betaflight drone from the parts that they sell. I will then need to be able to write a program that will control flight of the drone, and do some things in the air (be able to issue commands like “fly up 10 feet”, “fly north (south, east, west) 5 feet”, “land”.) This has to be a ~4" drone without camera. I have to be able to control it from the ground using UWB radio (not GPS). The drone might need to have an LED light attached to it, and possibly being able to turn on/off from the ground.

This project will potentially lead into purchase of hardware that will be used to assemble such drones, if we will be satisfied with the results. Please note that Flight Controller has to be F3 or F4 compatible, and it should be possible to flash latest Betaflight software to it.

We are looking for a partnership to accomplish this task. Drone assembly will be paid as well as all necessary parts.

Please, we are looking for someone who already has experience with Betaflight software.

Get in touch with me for the details, if you’re interested. Please do not write me if you don’t work or related to a store that sells drone parts!

UPDATE!!!

It’s NOT necessary to just support UWB. For example, Wi-Fi is also good, other protocols are acceptible. MAYBE we can utilize another FC software, depending if Betaflight supports auto-pilot modes (getting controlled from the ground is also one of the important issues.)

I can’t see how you you are going to achieve those flight commands without a GPS as it won’t know the distance it’s traveled (apart from maybe the height using a barometer)

Maybe @DoomedFPV can help you with that. :wink:
He is our Build specialist in the UK. :slight_smile:

Thanks for the vote of confidence.
Wouldn’t say I was quite that good. But I can build/repair quads.

@Rickolas

Google UWB Radio… no need for GPS

@DoomedFPV Would you like to take on this request? Please write to my e-mail above, so we’ll discuss in private, if you have an interest. The project might slightly change as we discover what we can or cannot do.

Thank you!

I don’t think Betaflight can do auto-pilot modes…
Maybe have a look into iNav
