A platform that allows smartphones to fly
And not just smartphones. Flone is a platform for the empowerment of air space.
An open source drone to conquer the airspace
Free Libre Open Source
We have the social mission to build a free and independent airspace. Free software is essential to guarantee its neutrality, just as it happens on the Internet, airspace should not depend on the domain of any corporation or proprietary technology.
We use laser cutting because it opens up creative possibilities and opportunities for local development and global distribution. It allows a quick and economic access to production tools, affecting the processes of social development promoting new forms of property, industrial flexibility and cooperation.
We seek to create a tool that is educational and revolutionary, that can be used professionally around the world.
Like all other consumer goods, drones have an impact on the garbage we produce. We use wood, a biodegradable material that can be repaired or disposed of in the event of an accident without generating waste and the electrical skeleton can be easily reused. It is designed with the minimum necessary elements to fly, looking for the reuse of components, such as smartphones.
Airspace is public space,
we have the right to fly.

I conceived flone in 2012, seeking to gather everything I looked for from the drones of my previous experience, small, simple, easy to manufacture and with a natural control.
I’m an innovator from Barcelona, in love with drones. Flone is one of the most beautiful and enrequizidores hardware and open source projects in the world.
I am an Android developer based in Barcelona. I love Flone because it brings together several hardware and open source projects. This is a great motivation to contribute to free software!
