Introduction: Waterproof, Crash-proof, Homemade Drone Airframe

Game of Drones Ep. 2 - Indestructible Drone Design & Testing

"Ride 'em hard and put 'em away wet.  They're just drones"

The Game of Drones team make a drone that can fly in a rainstorm, get hit with paintballs, land in water and fall out of the sky over and over again without sustaining damage.  It's a whole new paradigm in amateur UAV design and is the first true indestructible drone for the masses.  Made with little more than garage tools, each frame costs less than $50 and can out-perform many other frames costing $1000 of dollars.

    What's the body made of?

    Impressive, particularly the waterproof feature.

    whats the overall cost and how do you build one?

    Is there any way for you to put up a 3D scan of the airframe on here? I would love to see how this performs when 3D printed.

    Come on, tell us a bit about what's inside the thing - motor spec, batteries, endurance... I want to get building my own!

    Can you give an estimate on the weight of these frames? Are they lighter or heavier than the frames costing $1000's of dollars?

    Amazing! Excellent Job, Now if you want a headache go out and commercialize it and make a ton of money! I'd be a customer!!! Good job guys.
