Helyx is a pilot project which explores the implementation of generative design and additive manufacturing technologies in the UAV industry. The project focuses on the development of a First Person View (FPV) drone for racing and freestyle applications.
The design process took into account three key factors which are fundamental to the development of an FPV chassis: reduced air resistance, reduced weight, and capability of withstanding impacts.
This set of parameters and the G-forces (up to 7G) generated in flight resulted in an unconventional quadcopter which highlights the benefits of combining innovative design approaches to advanced manufacturing technologies.
Helyx is patented
monocoque reticular frame
A monocoque frame for a racing drone, in particular for a quadcopter FPV drone. It comprises a monocoque reticular structure which defines a plurality of supports for electric lifting rotors and a central support section for one or more electronic control units and an electric accumulator.
The reticular structure delimits and wraps, in correspondence with the central support portion, a containment volume for the electronic control units and the electric accumulator in such a way as to protect them from collisions and / or impacts.
