We are excited to inform you that the Vertiq 8108s will be shipped to Crowd Supply’s warehouse the week of October 18th. After delays due to various electronic component shortages, the motor controller PCBs arrived last week, and we’ve assembled several motors and controllers for testing. Our test results so far have exceeded our expectations. Over the next week, we will be finalizing the firmware and perform final assembly and calibration on October 15th. Here’s a recent test video: Read the full update.

In early October, IQ Motion Control attended AUVSI Xponential 2020! AUVSI, or Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, is the world’s largest non profit organization that pushed the UAV and robotics industries forward. Every year they host the world’s largest event for unmanned and autonomous systems. This year, however, it was virtual. Read the full update.
This past month, IQ Motion Control teamed up with BFD to test IQ’s alpha prototype of the Vertiq 6806! BFD is a UAV hardware development company that builds aircrafts that can be customized to a business’s unique needs. They were created to bridge the gap between expensive heavy lift systems and common light duty multirotors. Their expertise with large UAVs and their interest in the unique features this product offers made them a perfect test partner. Read the full update.
