Award Winning Tri-Copters
Award Winning Design • Unparalleled Utility
The SwitchBlade-Elite is easy to fly, feature rich and reliable.
Created without Preconceptions
The SwitchBlade was created when we took a fully objective look at what makes a great drone. Without any preconceptions about the number of rotors, the best materials or the shape, we researched, built and tested design after design. The clear winner after that exhaustive process was a tri-rotor design with an innovative pivoting rear yaw-mechanism. Fly a SwitchBlade next to any other drone and the differences in speed, power, stability and flight characteristics are clear. We’ve created something truly amazing.
Introducing the SwitchBlade-EliteWhat if you went back to the fundamentals of what a drone is supposed to be? What if you discarded the current design philosophy and created a pure performance machine with no preconceptions about what it should look like? We did and the SwitchBlade-Elite is the result.
It’s a tri-rotor drone with an articulating tail, super powerful and efficient electric motors and the most advanced flight components ever built. Not only is the SwitchBlade fast and easy to fly, it’ll carry a small payload for up to 30 minutes.
The SwitchBlade is everything a drone should be at the price point and ease of transportation you want it to be.

Here’s What our Customers Say
In a world of quad-rotor drones, why is the SwitchBlade a tri-rotor?
We tested dozens of configurations before choosing the SwitchBlade’s design and it’s by far the best option. Here’s why:
Better aerodynamics and a high power-to-weight ratio means that the SwitchBlade is fast. You’ll be able to keep up with virtually any action shot with a top speed of over 100 kph (62 mph).
With an articulating rear rotor, the SwitchBlade has substantially better yaw authority than a quad-copter can achieve. What does this mean for you? Make faster turns more precisely and easily complete your mission.
Maintain orientation at a distance and enjoy airplane-inspired, precisely tuned flight dynamics. Banked turns, low passes, chases and other common maneuvers feel natural and intuitive. You’ll be able to concentrate on your job, not on flying the drone, like never before.
