Product Description

QL25 is a powerful kit packed into a small package - Build, scale, and test drone applications via WiFi quickly and efficiently with Dronesmith Technologies developer starter kit.

  • Luci flight controller
  • 250 class airframe
  • 4 brushless motors

Options and Add-Ons

Battery Charger


A drone with a dead battery isn't the most useful. This charger will slowly charge the battery - which help keep the battery healthy and extends it's life cycle.

Additional Battery


If you need multiple flights in a row you may want to grab a second battery!

Breakout Board


Luci has many additional features that can be accessed via its HDI connector. If you need any of these features it would be useful to grab the breakout board! Our breakout board allows easy access to additional FMU and Edison IO, truly making development on Luci a breeze.

How it works
