Entry for the Parrot Drone Accessory Design Competition
Test your skill flying your Minidrone in low level precision flights.
The SkyCrane transforms your Minidrone into a flying hook. Ideal for indoor use, it is great fun using it on your own or making a competition to check who is the best “hook”.
The SkyCrane device is to be easily attached to the lego block on top of the Minidrone. It has a hook underneath from which the load will hang, leaving the bottom Minidrone sensors undisturbed. It has also four legs to act as a landing gear in order to enjoy a complete real experience.
The SkyCrane is composed by two pieces: the hook, to be attached to the Minidrone itself and the basket, where the small load (if any) will be placed.
It has been designed extremely light weight and with care not to displace the gravity center of the Minidrone (slightly forward when unloaded, neutral or slightly backwards when loaded).
