What is that?

The blackbee is an operational spy drone made by 3 students from the University of Technology of Troyes for the Innovateam Challenge. The goal of the challenge is to face different hardships such as speed racing, precision landing, looking for clues and taking picturesa and an obstacle race
We are now finished with the drone and are excited to be at the Innovateam challenge to compete with other teams. Our main idea is to hide the drone in order to spy.

The Black bee

The Blackbee is made around a bi-rotor innovative 3D printed frame, and he is FPV remote controlled. We called our drone Blackbee because of its color, its size and the sound it produces when flying. The main characteristics of the Blackbee are its little size, high maneuverability and its ability to hide. It is equipped with a camera to see and to be driven and it records everything he sees. The Blackbee costs are under 500€, if you want the detailed cost click here. At the beginning we wanted to hide the drone into a tissue box, but unfortunately the lack of time prevented us from implementing the idea. But we are still in development for the future version.
