UAV for Disaster Mitigation & Management: Open-Source Frame

Conceptual design model

In the field of open-source drone technology, our project takes a groundbreaking approach to address the challenges of disaster mitigation and management. At its core, we've developed a fully 3D printed conceptual design. This innovative drone features a customized power distribution board, APM 2.8 flight controller, MT3506 650KV motor, a 1045 propeller, 1800mAh battery, 40A 2-6S ESC, GPS functionality, and telemetry operating at 433MHz. Together, these carefully selected hardware components create a functional UAV capable of a commendable 10-minute flight time, making it a versatile tool for disaster-stricken areas. The seamless coordination of these components, guided by the Mission Planner software, reflects our commitment to creating accessible and adaptable drone technology for effective disaster response efforts on a global scale.
