Entry Description

Flippy is a hybrid drone that strives to improve the experience of flying a recreational drone.
With both flight and driving capabilities, internal motors power its transformation from a
drone to a rc car to broaden its exploration capabilities and lengthen its play time. The
design follows standard rules for plastic part breakup, with the main body being injection
molded ABS that cases a 16 megapixel camera. The propeller protectors are cased with
neoprene tracks that are resistant to weather corrosion and impact.
