MPM-1000

Universal rig for MicroDrone 4-1000.

A thoroughly engineered rig for small to medium sized cameras, like the Canon 500D and HD-Video recorders with a weight up to 1 kg. The rig can be delivered in two different models: one with roll/tilt servo and the other with tilt servo and oil-pneumatic roll stabilisers.

The servos are German quality products with metallic gears. The rig is delivered ready to bolt straight into the landing mounts. The angle and arch of the servos can be managed via the MicroDrone’s software, for optimal function adapted to the task at hand. Thanks to the rig being able to turn and adjust we can optimise camera placement to maintain centre of gravity on almost every camera model.

The rig is delivered with aluminium attachment points, to withstand impact from even rougher landings. Weight 206g.

MPM-200

The new Multi Purpose camera/video rig for MicroDrone 4-200 and quad-copter.

Following the success of the  MicroDrone 4-1000  camera/video rig, Scandicraft has developed an entirely new camera/video rig for the MicroDrone 4-200 and similar dr0nes. This is a high-quality product, developed and manufactured in Sweden by Scandicraft. This robust rig is attached onto the landing mounts with the soft mounts of the MicroDrone. It has been equipped with a high quality servo with metal gears for tilt steering. It can also be ordered with a servo able to rotate the camera, useful to eliminate rolling manoeuvres from showing in the camera.

With a net weight of no more than 68 grams, this camera is ideally suited for the new generation of compact cameras from known companies such as Panasonic, Nikon and Go-Pro. Compatible camera width up to 95 mm.

If requested the product can be modified with longer horizontal arms, allowing Panasonic’s new HDC-SD40 super light video camera to be mounted.

____

The video/camera rig may also be ordered with an unmounted, universal base, allowing custom modifications to how and where it should be placed on the craft. This allows the rig to point straight forward, be inverted and the like.

An unparalleled rig for the airborne photographer!

Scandicraft has over the last three years been working part-time to develop the idea with a UAV that transforms between VTOL helicopter and Fixed Wing aeroplane.

.
The great thing is how this concept does not fly in helicopter mode by pure power from the propeller or engines, but instead utilizes the power used to give the big wing speed to create lift, both in Fixed Wing flight and in VTOL helicopter flight. This requires a lot less energy, compared to normal helicopter or “quad-copter” UAV systems.
.
As an example, you can start vertical as a helicopter from a parking space or a rooftop in the city and then transform to a Fixed Wing plane and survey the city centre. When you spot something you want to investigate further, you can transform the vehicle to rotor craft mode and hover down for a closer look. Go back up again and transform to Fixed Wing, return to the starting position and hover down for landing.
.
.
The interesting part is how we have constructed the vehicle; it will need a minimum of maintenance compared to a helicopter and is able to utilize different power sources, adapting to what is available.
.
So let’s see what de future will bring in to this project, that we now fly on regular basis for further development!
The company Scandicraft is now open for collaboration on taking this working prototype into production.
