First ION Airframe Parts Have Arrived: Solid Aluminum.

You may not imagine how exciting this is for us. Months. Hundreds of hours of work into designing the nuances of these parts. Today we got the first run back from the machine shop. Holding them in our hands feels very good. And big props to Nathan, our lead engineer. Yess therev are only two of us, but he takes the lead in part design as I come up with ideas.

We felt we were building this well, but in holding them. The sturdiness of our frame comments parts is like nothing else on the market. This is going to be a long lasting machine folks.

These represent core parts of the amazing ION Airframe. Including a universal camera mounting plate. Pretty much an industry first for this type of machine.

We know we’ve not released all the details on this yet, but the parts look good and we’re ready to start first assembly. We’re on target for full releasing details sometime in Jan 2013… Gav
