A year and a half ago we introduced our new brand name – Aeronavics, which is now firmly associated with the history of Droidworx. The name Aeronavics, with roots in aerospace, self-guided navigation systems and mechatronics, we feel matches seamlessly the character of our company.
We are pleased to announce that Droidworx has now fully transitioned to Aeronavics, positioning the business for future growth as we have secured Trademarks and Domains around the world.
To celebrate this change and the festive season of Christmas and New Year we are offering FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE on all current model airframe kits ordered before the 1st of January.
Please visit our shop to take advantage of this great offer.
Ti-QR – Perfecting The Art Of Aerial Robotics
Two years we have invested in developing a strong and safe solution for easy pack down and quick foldaway craft for transport and travel. Our commitment to safety kept us clear from the method of disconnecting and connecting electronics coupling, noting that a failure eventually will occur using this technique. Also even the slightest compromise of structural integrity and overall performance was out of the question, making our quest rather challenging.
We are therefore delighted to now introduce to you our safe and secure and highly durable Quick Release Foldaway Boom Solution in the new Ti-QR – Titanium Quick Release Series.
With some notable final improvements and tweaks we feel we have now perfected the Art of Aerial Robotic Craft for aerial imagery and cinematography. Find a full specification here.
Last week we launched our spring sale with fantastic response, thank you for your enthusiasm. It is time to clear the shelves and make space for some new products – more on this next week… Meanwhile grab a deal – excellent value – a truly professional grade airframe has never been this affordable. Enjoy!

SkyJib 6 Flown At -17C By Meta4Film
The North of Sweden is an open playground for filmmakers and cinematographers and Film Company Meta4Film has been up shooting for their up and coming film “The Visit”, using our SkyJib 6. The crew flew in temperatures as low as -17C to capture the best views of the breath taking landscape.
A preview of Meta4Film’s “The Visit” is available on their Facebook and Vimeo accounts as well as “The Making Of” videos, found here, that feature our SkyJib 6.
Aeronavics recently delivered identical twin SkyJib X4 Titanium’s for a program to be aired on the Animal Planet network. The two craft were custom built in the newly opened Aeronavics RTF (Ready To Fly) factory facility in New Zealand. Featuring state of the art components; these two field machines complete with custom transport cases are destined to go into some wild places on earth to help seek out and stop illegal poaching activities.
Aeronavics was approached by the programs host, a long time activist against illegal operations around the globe including illegal whaling, because of its well known professional craft, service and reputation.
