Designer resources & inspiration

This is your chance to pioneer new ways of interacting with drones, so time to get the creative juices flowing!

Why not create a helipad to land on, a ramp to jump off or a gate to fly through?

Here our some guidelines for what Parrot are looking for:

  • A fully conceived project with a story to tell. e.g. the jumping sumo jousting game.
  • Creative designs that best compliment each drone.
  • Designs that do not compromise functionality.

Think about:

  • Carry weight
  • Balance and positioning
  • Structural integrity
  • Secure and easy ways to attach to the drone

Bellow you can find useful drone design templates, specs and designer tools to help you realize your ideas.

Good Luck!!!
