3D printed Aluminum drone clocks in at almost 90 mph: Fusion Imaging’s project “eclipse” field test

Last week Fusion Imaging announced that they are creating a Shapeways sponsored FPV drone using Shapeways’ new 3D printed Raw Aluminum Material. They’ve built the components and done their first test flight. The results are impressive – this drone can zoom through the air at nearly 90 mph per hour!

Designer Haydn Bao discusses the advantages of printing a drone directly into a metal like aluminum. The lightweight, strong and heat resistant frame allows for incredible max speeds even on the first test flight.
