    The beginning

  • 2014

    The idea

    With the purchase of a basic model of drone made by his friend Cristian, both begin to think of the possible uses for that equipment. In March this year, came the idea of building a large drone and use it for agricultural spraying, considering the high number of accidents in this sector and their own personal experience.

  • Making it real

    Prototyping starts in July.

  • Sharing

    In November, Eduardo presents is idea on TEDx Unisinos - Ideas for everyday life.

  • In July, with several changes, the prototype is flying as desired.
