Flone Quadcopter Transportation Box




Introduction: Flone Quadcopter Transportation Box

This is a Flone Quadcopter transport box.
This transport box is designed without nuts or screws with a slide door for carry a full drone kit: frame, propellers, gimbal, some batteries and even the battery charger.

Drones are very important to transport safely, so from the beginning we understant that the flone drone project will need also an open source plywood box.

Flone is designed to be small & compact, so the box should be small, light, and strong as well. We design this box for made it as small as possible in mind, but offering space too for everything else that you need in a international travel with a drone.

Recommended material: 4 mm Plywood, MDF or Acrylic.
