Piloting made easy!

FlexBot can be controlled using the gravity sensors in a mobile device. It imitates the movement of the smartphone or a tablet in the air. Also, traditional throttle, elevator, aileron, rudder control system can be used to operate your Hex.

See the world from a different perspective!

A camera can be attached to FlexBot for aerial photography and videography. With FPV glasses provided in the FlexBot Spy Kit, you can experience the thrills and joys of being in the air! A 5.8G Radio telemetry module is used for real time transfer of videos to the FPV glasses.

Personalize your flying experience!

FlexBot comes with a capacity of customizations. You choose how you want it to look depending on what you like. We provide many 3D printed shells. All shells are directly mounted on top of the circuit board, and no soldering is required. If you are a designer, you can design your own shells and print them out from Shapeways or a 3D printer at your home or a nearby hackerspace and mount them as well.

Be creative and hack!

You can change FlexBot’s behavior by changing FlexBot’s open source code or hardware. FlexBot is Arduino compatible which makes it easy to fiddle with it. The autopilot system of FlexBot allows it to auto-balance itself in mid-air, but if you are creative, the same circuit board can be used to balance other devices such as a two-wheeled robot car, fixed-wing aircrafts, camera gimbals, submarines etc.
