Flight in the Palm of Your Hand: Micro Drone 3.0 RSS



Drone Racing goes mainstream.

The last year has seen drone racing go mainstream and with the release of our carbon kit just around the corner, we are taking a look into the sports rise in popularity. So when did it begin and why is it taking off so spectacularly? (no pun intended).It would be hard to specify one individual who is responsible for the creation of Drone Racing but you could be forgiven in saying that Scot Refsland can be seen as a ‘father’ figure of the sport. In 2014, he created a Berkley based group of drone hobbyists - that in one year grew from 10 to a staggering 700 people. While a number of drone hobbyist groups existed before this, Refsland's concentration...

Extreme Fliers at The Worlds Fair Nano

The Extreme Fliers Team was at Worlds Fair Nano in San Francisco. The two-day festival filled with technology, futurist talks, art and music was the perfect place to hold our very own Micro Drone building workshop. Attendees were able to receive a workshop session where they were able to build the Micro Drone 3.0 from beginning till flight testing.  The modular build of the drone even allowed the younger generation to get involved and assemble the drone as-well!

Give a Glove Initiative

  While winter is fantastic for drone sales, it is a tough time for the homeless and we wanted to do as much as we could to help in our local community. At the beginning of December we launched our Give a Glove initiative. For every purchase made on microdrone.co.uk, Extreme Fliers will be donating a pair of gloves to the homeless.  *UPDATE* We received 825 orders over Christmas, meaning 825 gloves will be given out to some of the 8000 people sleeping rough on the streets. We are happy to announce a partnership with the Salvation Army, who will be helping us to distribute these gloves via their homeless drop in centres throughout South London. Stay tuned for more...
