IQ Drone Module

A sensored, closed-loop motor for unparalleled performance

This project is coming soon. Sign up to receive updates and be notified when this project launches.


The IQ Motor Module is an integrated motor and controller that uses a position sensor and advanced calibration and control algorithms to optimize motor performance. This brings professional-grade motor control to consumer and enterprise drones, as well as many other robotic applications.
