PlutoX, an open-source, DIY, easy-to-code, crash-resistant nano-drone kit designed by an IIT Bombay based startup Drona Aviation just funded its campaign on Indiegogo. PlutoX comes in the form of two kits, a Tinkerer kit, and a Starter kit. Early-bird backers on IndieGoGo can get the Starter kit – which includes only the drone –  for $149 + shipping.

In the Tinkerer Kit – priced at $169 – you get the PlutoX Nano drone, spare propellers, a camera with image processing capabilities, range sensors, motors, a breakout board, and the instruction guide. As for the remote controller, there’s an app for both iOS and Android devices. This Tinkerer Kit gives you the chance to make more than 10 different projects.

Drona Aviation, the makers of the project encourage users to experiment and play around with different configurations. They’ve open-sourced the entire project so you can download and modify it to your heart’s content. The SDK for PlutoX is based on the Cygnus IDE and API so playing around with the code and teaching it new tricks is a lot easier than one would imagine.

Share with the community of tinkerers and developers who learn from each other. Even Chris Anderson, who commented on our TT drone project on Dydrones!
