Crowdsourcing Mornings: B-Unstoppable Drone


Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing Mornings

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

B-Unstoppable is the first in the World commercially available hybrid Tank-Quadcopter, from the creator of Expendables 3 drone.  B-Unstoppable achieves outstanding performance in driving across difficult terrain.  It can turn on the spot, which is extremely useful in limited space, which provides 360 view for on-board camera. When obstacles become too big, it can simply take-off and fly over them. The model weighs only 84 g, therefore it can be operated nearly everywhere, without the worry of falling down and causing damages to others or model itself.

Despite the small size and low cost, B-unstoppable has good endurance: 9 min of flying, 12-18 min driving and combined endurance of 12-15 min. It has powerful coreless DC motors, 900 mAh Li-po battery. It comes with 2.4 GHz radio transmitter. Front and back lights, that allows for night flying as well as indicating low battery level. It is a cool toy for everyone, that can be used indoor as well as outdoor. It is extremely easy to control; flicking a mode button will convert tank to quadcopter. Steering is also very simple, in the air B-unstoppable is controlled as any other quadcopter. On the ground each track is controlled by separate channel so you get the full experience of driving a tank.
