Mr. Acne 2.0 Flying Drone

The Idea

At the end of 2013 ACNE moved offices and naturally they wanted to throw a housewarming party for our friends and clients. But they also wanted to do invitations in a new and creative way so they came up with Mr. ACNE, orĀ Mr. ACNE 1.0: Party Invite as they liked to call it. Mr. ACNE 1.0 was a clock that counted down days to their housewarming. It was a big success.

So, for this past Christmas (2014), as ACNE was brainstorming on the typical holiday gifts, it was natural for them to start with Mr. ACNE 1.0 as a jumping off platform. This time we needed to up the ante though. To do so, they sent Mr. ACNE 1.0 to flight school! There, he gained his wings and 2.0 status.

Just like last time, they modeled, 3D-printed, sanded and constructed each copter by hand. But this time we had to construct and figure out how to effectively build a fully controlled quadrocopter with an abnormal flight shape.
