Description:We have a few STEM / STEAM (science and tech courses for kids) programs we are designing for, including a miniature radio controlled racing drone. They should run off of a single rechargeable A or AA battery or rechargeable easily found (commonly available) battery. Need designs for the computer controllers (Arduino or similar), software, simple radio remote control and system, electric motor systems, and drive systems engineered. We have the basic frame shape. We are looking for simple, field serviceable designs that kids can take apart and put together and use to learn these technologies.
Just like everyone, we want it ASAP.
Wants:Size; Body about 8-10 CM, 3-4 inches long. Motor struts can project out from this shape.
Shape; Based on our logo shape, attached as a JPG. Two basic plates (upper and lower plates) can be 3D printed or cut from carbon fiber sheets.
Battery; A single A (7 hao) or AA (5 hao) rechargeable, or other commonly available battery.
Drone; 4 rotors, attachable prop guard, stable flight characteristics (so will need sensors and feedback system to dampen instability).
Basic flight commands and control characteristics;
1 - Take off slowly to 1 meter high by simple radio control button.
2 - Land slowly straight down by simple radio control button.
3 - Forward and back by simple radio control.
4 - Turn left and turn right by simple radio control.
5 - Up and down by simple radio control.
6 - Alternatively, can be controlled by mobile phone.
7 - Up to 4 racers can race at a time controlled by different locked radio channels. Better to have a physical hardware switch to lock drones so they can’t be interfered with in flight.
8 - Does not have to be the fastest drone, ease of handling is preferred. This may be the first learning or training drone many kids touch.
9 - We will launch an additional contest to put a 720p camera with recording for FPV flying on this later. This design is a basic line of sight training racer.
Don't Wants:Cutesy little talking toy.
This is a fun but serious learning platform, not a novelty product.
We want kids to learn about software, radio control, electric motors and drive control systems plus aeronautics and flying skills for electric drones. We will also teach them good sportsmanship as we compete with the final products.
Ask for Sample:If you can produce a working sample, we will pay for it at a reasonable cost.
- Simple open source is fine.
#1 Drone Bill of Materials by Lyle
A simple shopping list so that you can put kits together for the kids. I didn't provide a rendering because the design will change as the components change. That being said, what I've spec'd out for you is going to be a really serviceable little drone. It's about as simple and kid-friendly as something this complicated can be.

Simple Miniature Racing Car for STEAM Learning

Design of a new Robotic Character t
Hi there, We are a small robotics startup that develop robotic toys. While we are able to do all the mechanical, electrical and software development, we do not have any artist onboard to make our robots look fantastic! So we are looking for someone with expertise in 3D modeling and product design. This is not a one time gig, we are looking for someone we can collaborate on the long term. Your job will be quite simple: We will provide you a CAD model and you will have to design around it to make it look nice according to our directions. For each project, we will expect to first see some sketches (you ll have 1 week for that) and then once we have reviewed them and pick one, you will be designing the 3d model (2 weeks for that). The first project will be to design the shell of a humanoid robotic toy. Again do not send anything till we have picked someone and provided CAD model and design directions. In order for us to pick someone we will need two things: - First, the more robot design you have in your portfolio and you can show us, the better we can appreciate your style and capacities. - Your hourly rate or per project rate. We are quite in a hurry to start the first job, so please reply quickly. Thanks!
Training Ball & Sci-Fi Env
I have two models that need to be made for an indie game I'm building. The first is a simple orb thing that levitates and will shoot lasers. The second is a temple training like facility. Orb: I'm creating a game that needs a sci-fi training orb that'll levitate around, and fire lasers. I've done a very crude sketch (attached) to help you understand what I'm envisioning. Temple Environment: It should feel like a wide open space that also seems a bit "sacred". I've provided another crude drawing of what I'm envisioning. I have a couple of tweaks about it though, I'd like the ceiling to be much higher and there to be pillars holding on the lights instead of them just hanging on the wall. And the windows to be about 75% of their thickness and taller.
