A “biomimetic” drone?

The creation of our UAVs draws its inspiration from the largest, oldest and most efficient engineering laboratory: nature. Drawing inspiration from what evolution has achieved to allow animals to fly allows us to create the drones that are the closest to the flight of a bird or a dragonfly. This approach is called biomimicry: reproducing what nature does best.

How our biomimetic drones fly

The secret of our drones comes from research and development work that has led to the creation of ultra-light engines and unprecedented kinematics. This patented technology is the key to successfully achieve such low weight on the scale.

The reproduction of animal wing flapping through biomimicry gives realism to our products, which move like real birds in their environment. Flapping flight or gliding, innovation is felt in every wing movement.

Our drones are:

Easy to control

Fast and precise, you will be able to make impressive figures

Fun and safe

Lightweight and without propeller. Safe for your environment.


A reinforced and flexible structure. Materials chosen to last.

10 years of existence and worldwide success
