Bringing Modular Drone Solutions to Researchers and Innovators.
Here at Alpha Aerospace we designed and built the modular drone platform Lotus-I, with patent-pending wireless arm technology called DASH (directly attached swappable hardware). DASH allows the arms on the Lotus-I to operate as normal when folded open, and wirelessly disconnect when the drone is folded closed. This means the Lotus can adapt to MANY use case scenarios at any given time. The arms can be swapped in less than a few minutes to bigger or smaller ones, different styles, and different curves. Maintenance of the drone can also happen in a breeze! You no longer have to spend hours to desolder and solder on new motors. Or even wait days for the distributor to do that job for you. It can be done as quickly as it takes to swap out the propellers.
The Lotus-I is packed full of features with many new ones in development. There is a universal Picatinny rail on the bottom of the drone and a high-density plug with all the pinouts a developer could ever need. Since the Lotus-I runs on an open source flight controller, it is very easy to adapt the platform to a wide variety of payloads that can interface directly with the platform. Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence capable hardware integration coming soon.
Attention to detail is seen throughout the whole platform. The carbon fiber is oriented to provide strength across the fibers, directly to the arms. There are chamfered edges on 2mm carbon fiber plates, so you don’t cut yourself on the carbon while you handle the Lotus. Countersunk bolts, sleek lines, and the antennas are all placed in the best locations possible. All that power and portability is paired with dual redundant power supplies, long range telemetry, and more!
The Alpha Aerospace Lotus-I is designed in California and built in the USA. This means you are working directly with us, the original manufacturers, and not foreign-based companies. Our software solutions will have data servers located in the US, so your data is always secure. We strive to bring you the best customer service and attention to detail in everything we do and work with you to make sure your Lotus-I is optimally tuned and ready for any project or task.
