About Us

We are… semi-retired IT Professionals, who’ve always loved flight! Drones have taken us over by STORM!

We’ve built just about every drone you can imagine, and we’re continuing to IMAGINE new ones! That’s where the fun is! Bottom-line: WE LOVE TO BUILD! We love it so much, that we’re selling PROFESSIONALLY-BUILT drones at NEAR COST, to benefit this fast-growing hobby , and get more awesome builds in the AIR!

UPDATE****** We now professionally print your 3D needs! Send us an email and we’ll get it done quickly.

Browse our builds, browse the BLOG for ideas, thoughts, and up-coming ideas.

Send us an email (Or blog post) to suggest a new build of your own! We’ll build to your specs, professionally, and quickly. We really do love being in constant “build-mode”.

Most of all: enjoy this high-tech, super-fun hobby with us! Whether you’re an FPV racer, free-stylist, long-range videographer or just like puttering around: we’ve got the build for you. And yes, we’re starting to design very “budget”-friendly drones, including those without FPV, as we’ve had plenty of requests. So if you just like flying around, without FPV, we’ve got the budget build for you.

Have fun & keep flying!.
