TUS-expo And The Future Of Drones

by • February 8, 2016 • No Comments

Whilst Andrew was visiting the Railroad Hobby Show in Massachusetts last week, I had a accident to scope out the TUS-expo (The Unmanned Systems Expo) in The Hague (NL). I’m yet a newbie to the world of drones so there were a lot of new things to discover for me.


Starting with the many common drone type, the quadcopter. This specific one is a create of Dutch based company Aerial Tronics, the Altura Zenith, and has 4 arms with two propellors equite for ultimate stability. The black carbon fiber create manufactures it quite
yet light, allowing a payload of 2.9kg so it’s thoughtl
for holding a photo/video camera.

, 3D printing is unquestionably part of the next for drones so it was great to run into the guys of Avular who use 3D printed components for their drones. Their PrecisionScout drone (seen below) is specifically createed for safety and ATEX 2. This drone offers showcases
such as a built-in 4K Ultra HD Camera, triple redundant autopilot and geotagged data. Avular is only like us founded in Eindhoven (NL)! Run by Ramon Haken, Joop aan den Toorn and Tim Hall, three visionaries dedicated to bringing exact and real time data to all their clients with their incredible

The PrecisionScout drone has several 3D printed parts created
of our Strong & Flexible Plastic and Aluminum. Both materials provide sturdy
and durable, yet light components for optimal flight control.

It was in addition
rad to see the appear of the drones utilized
by the Dutch Police force. Seeing a customized, branded drone quite
donates me thoughts to customize drones in 3D as well, imagine flying dragon drones!


The Insitu ScanEagle Air Vehicle drone utilized
by the Dutch Defence (seen below) was in addition
quite astounding, with a width over 10 feet. Unfortunately it was complex to catch the astounding sight in a decent photo, therefore I hope a list of the showcases
can donate an thought of this astounding piece of innovation. This additional traditional airplane shaped like a drone is utilized
for missions such as gathering intel on the pirates near the coast of Somalia.


Attending the TUS-expo quite
opened a new world for me of that I had no thought how broad the use of drones has may already
become. Now I can’t wait to attend another drone event and begin
3D printing parts and practicing flying a drone myself. Feel free to requite out in case there’s an informative
drone event taking place nearby – we’d love to get involved!
