ahaDRONE is made out of our patent pending cardboard. Cardboard is prepared in a very unique way that has an equal strengths and stiffness in all directions, where in price factor compared to other materials and the weight of the cardboard make it light weight which is important in case of drones also it is our patent pending cardboard. Cardboard has 2 important features
1) Stiffness/Weight: This Cardboard has uniform strength and stiffness in all directions.
2) Hackability: Can be designed with your own ideas and can make drones, planes, robots etc.

By keeping our Flight controller hardware, Autopilot Software and the Airframe Design open, we continue to build over other’s contribution and let others build on top of it.
Ideas have no limitation, bring your ideas to life by modifying the software, attaching 3rd party hardware and altering the airframe to bring up your creations.
10 Axis Sensors
With 3-Axis Accelerometer, 3-Axis Gyroscope, 3-Axis Magnetometer and a barometer sensor this tiny drone is second to none.
The Flight controller supports Arduino toolchain right out of the box, you can even modify the Flight controller to drive a car or row a boat or even build a desktop plotter.
According to DGCA any drone that is 250 Grams or less is classified as nano drone, this puts fewer restrictions on owing and operating drones, however you must adhere to the upto date governing laws of your jurisdiction at all times.
WiFi Radio and Telemetry
Using WiFi for both radio and telemetry helps reduce the BoM and the overall cost of the drone, however if you aspire to fly over longer distances, just connect any PPM Sum Receiver and a compatible transmitter and you are all set to fly long.
The weight to strength of our airframe will beat to dust the likes made out of plastic and it is sustainable too.
Innovative Corrugated Technology
We reinvented 140 years of corrugated technology to make it air worthy and it is cost effective too.
At 69 Grams, the airframe is one of the lightest in its class anywhere on the planet.

As we are using WiFi for communication between drone and mobile application, drone can cover a maximum range of 150feet.
At one charge of battery you can fly drone for 8-10 min.
Not yet, we are currently on it.
We have included the IMU sensor which keeps drone stable in normal wheather conditions.
Drone hovers at the same place and searches for the WiFi connection and tries to reconnect. Once it is connected drone will safely land.
Yes, we are using an open source flight controller which can be reprogrammed based on your applications.
Total weight of the drone is 235grmas.
