Test Different Drone Designs

Designed for heavy-lift drone testing

single-rotor testing

Single rotor 

The single rotor configuration allows the testing of one propeller at a time. This is perfectfor optimizing any kind of single-propeller drone designs like classic quadcopters or fixed wing drones.

coaxial testing back to back

Back-to-back coaxial rotors

The coaxial back-to-back rotor configuration allows the testing of two propellers simultaneously. This setup allows you to optimize coaxial quadcopters, hexacopters or octocopters. 

coaxial testing face to face

Face-to-face coaxial rotors

The coaxial face-to-face rotor configuration allows the testing of two propellers simultaneously without distance restriction between the propellers. 

coaxial testing offset

Face-to-face offset rotors

The coaxial face-to-face rotor configuration can be used with an offset between the two propellers. This configuration allows the testing of multiple coaxial designs. 

Series 1780 propeller testing

Tailored for Propeller Testing

Propeller test stand for thrust measurement

Propeller efficiency depends on multiple factors such as diameter, pitch, or propeller materials. The Series 1780 can be used as a propeller test stand to test and characterize your propeller efficiency. The Series 1780 - 75 kgf rating allows you to test propellers up to 70 inches (1.70) meters in diameter. 

Custom-Made Load Cell

Load sensor designed for brushless motor testing

The Series 1780 load cell has been designed especially for brushless motor and propeller testing for the drone industry. We support all kinds of electric motor mounting points. 
The load cells have been mounted in a tripod configuration to maximize space and be aerodynamic-friendly. The Series 1780 load cell can measure up to 75 kgf of thrust and 48 Nm of torque for a single propeller.
