YouTuber develops 3D-printed umbrella drone

A YouTuber from the channel “I Build Stuff” has constructed a 3D-printed drone that serves as an autonomous umbrella.

The approach of the project was to create an umbrella that can hover above the user without manual assistance. The challenge was to design a structure that could effectively utilize propellers without blocking airflow or reducing thrust. Previous attempts to attach the propellers directly to the wing failed as these configurations interfered with the necessary airflow or did not provide enough lift.

The developer found the solution in a frame that allows the propellers to be attached to the side. This arrangement avoids the problems of earlier concepts and provides sufficient thrust. The frame and other parts were manufactured using 3D printing, which made it possible to make adjustments during development.

The YouTuber explained exactly how he went about this in a detailed video.
