The 3DR Quad Zero drone is a sub-250g focused on ultralight payloads and extended flight times (1hr). This kit is perfect as a development platform, educational or even a light show drone - light fixture coming soon!

We provide a full build guide for Ardupilot and PX4, for beginners and experienced builders alike here. We developed a telemetry radio around this platform to enhance its "developer platform" character, as it provides the hardware to include external sensors and send information over custom MAVLink messages, or on the contrary use those messages to push commands to any actuator without disrupting the flight stack or the autopilot's pinout.

Assembly Guide

Update: this kit now ships with ExpressLRS, replacing the previously used FrSky R-XSR radio receiver. If your order needs the FrSky receiver instead, please send us an email info@3dr.com
