Portable

Sprite’s design allows it to easily fit almost anywhere.  The rotor blades automatically fold against the side of the airframe, so you can easily slip it into a backpack and carry it with you.

Rugged

With no protruding motor arms, no exposed delicate electronics or rigid propellers, Sprite™ is rugged.  It's tough polycarbonate construction can take a beating, and everything is sealed inside so sensitive parts don't get wet.

Simple

Sprite’s modular design makes it easy to upgrade and attach new payload modules as new technologies become available. Most parts can be changed quickly with no tools, making field operations easier.  Visit the Upgrades & Add-Ons page to see some of the modules that are in development.

Powerful

Sprite™ is compatible with and supports all of the features of the most common Ground Control Station Software including Mission Planner, DroidPlanner™ and the new Tower™ flight control software.  These features include Waypoint navigation, follow me, circle, return-to-home and structure scanning.  They are available for free for PC here and the Android™ version is here.
