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.
