Turn Anything Into a Drone With a 3D printer and This DIY Tutorial

The kit is a set of 3D printable STL files and it can turn small everyday objects into a simple UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) – perfect for a weekend project. The files are modifiable, so you can redesign it and print a legion of drone kits for personal aerial acrobatics right in your own backyard.

The DIY (Drone It Yourself) v1.0 kit offers you the opportunity to turn any object into a drone*, simply by attaching four motors and a control unit – no technical know-how needed. The kit consists of multiple parts that are easy to assemble and can be attached to a wide range of different objects.
