New Robotics Kit

The Best 3D Printed Drone Kit Ever Made! - Paul Mooney

SKYBOT is a uniquely designed and affordable complete drone robotic's kit for anyone interested in building their first drone. 

When we began working on SKYBOT, our goal was to make hands-on drone learning platform for both students and professional engineers. This meant making SKYBOT small and lightweight, yet durable enough to take with you anywhere. Intelligent enough so no piloting skills were required, and most of all, pricing SKYBOT at a point that makes it affordable." Freddie Hernandez, Head of Marketing

REDBOT Vs. SKYBOT

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our project has been featured on the following shows, sites, and tech blogs! We've had some great media so far - thank you for all the support!

We run hands-on robotics programs to excite students about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education. We Developed “DRONE ROBOTICS” which offers an engaging program at “The Boys and Girls Club of America”, in- and after-school classes at local BGCA around greater Los Angeles. Our program is for K-5 to K-12 students who work on cross-platform robotics integrating all the STEM fields. We started with just a few students and in the last year alone have been able to reach hundreds - and we hope this is just the beginning! We are so excited to present SKYBOT!

We engineered SKYBOT from the ground up through several software development life cycles to optimize function while staying affordable. We continue to work with students to make our designs appealing, and work with experts in the area of 3D Printing to improve our designs. We BETA tested and field-tested SKYBOT with a small group of students and the response has been remarkable. This is the kit we wish we had growing up!

• Quad-Rotor platform for understanding of drone lift 

• Standardized Quad-Rotor Hardware

• Hexagon-Basket design to minimizes weight while in flight.

• Fully accessible control board 

• Slide in LIPO battery pack 

• Additional support blades 

 • Develops practical knowledge of aerodynamics by using real electronic components 

• All for a low cost! 

Our 3D Printed Micro Fabricated Frame ensures high precision and durability. The unique SKYBOT Hexagon shape is optimized to minimize weight with higher lift. We give you the flexibility to design your own projects with included Tinker Cad software on our website at www.skybot.la the 3D Printed Design may be modified and purchased via Shapeways.com allowing you to develop a newly constructed frame for your SKYBOT! 

We are currently developing an assortment of new projects following the guidelines provided by the FAA. The SKYBOT kit is flexible and can be used anywhere in the U.S.

To thank contributors of $64 or more, we will send you the latest design of our SKYBOT. You will be given detailed step-by-step instructions for easy drone assembly, wiring, and controlling. The latest sample codes for tricks and flips will be accessible to all contributors, when you build your personalized drone robot. 

Please note that our SKYBOT uses standard drone technology and does not involve Hex-Rotor platforms. 

Our kit includes: 

• 3D Printed Micro-Fabricated Shape (made locally in the US) 

• STEM control board – micro-controller receiver 

• USB cable 

• Quad - Motor 

• Geo-Blades 

• LIPO Battery 

• DC 5V Charger Box 

• Receiver 

• LED communication 

• Power switch 

• 6 -AA battery holder

• Battery cover 

• Easy to follow instructions 

• No soldering required

To successfully reach out to robot builders everywhere, we need to scale up our production. This is where you can help us make this happen! Thank you for helping us bring SKYBOT to life! Learn more about what we do at www.skybot.la and watch students in action:
