Join the Revolution!

 

Developer-Friendly

PlexiDrone is the first commercially available RTF camera drone designed to let anyone easily create and fly with their own custom payloads. PlexiDrone’s custom payload architecture gives developers maximum freedom.

Quick-Release Payload Clip

The Payload Clip is the key to custom payloads.

The Payload Clip can be programmed to work with virtually anything to communicate with PlexiDrone and PlexiHub. Custom gimbals for special cameras can be made. Additional programmable buttons on the PlexiHub maximize this experience.

See below for a diagram highlighting available signals, power rails and communication lines you can tap into for your own custom payload.

All-Access Pass

Developers have access to (but not limited to):

  • A simple, reliable, and open-source communication protocol (your custom design can talk to / or interface) with PlexiDrone’s flight controller board and mobile application
  • Independently programmable payload clip using common languages and tools (Arduino IDE, Atmel studio, Visual Studio)
  • Access to regulated power (3.3V, 5V, 16.8V)
  • Access to PWM, analog, and digital pins controlled by a programmable micro-controller

Possibilities

The possibilities are virtually endless provided the total payload weight is below 1000 grams. You are not limited to developing for cameras despite them being ubiquitous with drones presently. You have the capability to go beyond, to produce something the world may not have seen before.

Payload Rail

As long as the custom payload is designed to be attached to the Payload Rail, or integrates the Payload Rail design then it can be physically mounted to the Payload Clip. This creates a seamless quick-release system as present on premium payloads.

The 3D CAD and/or 2D drawings of the Payload Rail can be found here.

What does this mean?

Custom Payloads are like apps or physical accessories for your smart phone.

Apps started a revolution in the mobile device industry, and PlexiDrone’s Payload Clip is here to change the drone industry!

And you get to be a part of it.
