Congratulations to the team at SteadiDrone from everybody at sUAS News. A well deserved win for South Africa’s most successful unmanned aircraft manufacturer. In airframes sold SteadiDrone has eclipsed military vendor Denel. They have distributors in ten countries around the world and a considerable online following on Facebook and elsewhere.
I have seen their 2014 platforms and am in no doubt they will be a great hit. In particular a large nameless quadrocopter capable of lifting several kilos for an hour. This platform is currently in trials for conservation tasks in Africa.
