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.
