3D Robotics Resumes International Shipments to 44 Countries!

_07C0513

We’re thrilled to announce that, as of today, 3D Robotics will be resuming exports of our autopilots and RTF vehicles to 44 countries! Those countries are:

Albania, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.

If you’re located in one of these countries, you’ll be able to order these items from us beginning immediately. This applies to both our regular customers and our dealers. Dealers and other resellers, however, should be aware that these items are being exported using license exception STA, which requires somewhat special handling both for us and for you. We’ll be in contact with all of our distributors and prospective distributors about the details of this arrangement.

As many of you know, we’ve already resumed shipping many items to all countries, including cables, hardware, batteries, fiber plates, motors, and various other items. And if your country isn’t among the 44 listed above, please be assured that we’re moving as quickly as possible to expand exports to all international locations.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support as we work through this process! And once more, happy flying!

Connect to your drone with Bluetooth!

Bluetooth Now you can leave your telemetry radio and OTG cable at home, and make a direct Bluetooth connection to your phone, tablet, or laptop with this nifty Bluetooth add-on kit ($24.99).

The module allows you to connect a Pixhawk or APM autopilot to a Bluetooth-compatible Android device using DroidPlanner or Andropilot ground station apps. The module has a range of 30m, which is fine for vehicle setup, mission planning and even close FollowMe mode—all without bulky long-range radios. Just plug it into your telemetry port and pair with your device. The kit is pre-set for 3DR gear and sends MAVlink at 57k to any mobile device or laptop running DroidPlanner, AndroPilot, Mission Planner, or APM Planner.

We’re going to be standardizing built-in Bluetooth for all 3DR vehicles and autopilots in the future, but you don’t have to wait for that—you can use Bluetooth right now. It’s the easiest way to make a telemetry link—no extra gear required!

Here’s a DIY tutorial on how to roll your own Bluetooth link—but for those who don’t want the hassle of making cables and configuring radios, we’ve now done it all for you: just click here!
