Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are temporarily not accepting new orders for this item.

OnPoynt, home of Drone Ranger® and the best selling drone education kits introduces The ARISE.

This drone is designed to meet the ARISE (Aerial Robotics in STEM Education) competition standards.

Like all OnPoynt kits, this one is designed to be assembled and operated by student teams.

This drone utilizes the frame / body of our Longbow drone but with shorter arms and different landing gear  and extra items required to comply with the ARISE Competition rules.

NOTE: This kit is recommended for students with an intermediate to advanced understanding of robotics. 

The ARISE aircraft is a complete package meeting all of the Aerial Robotics in STEM Education Competition equipment requirements with a robust suite of features. Equipped with advanced technology yet not over complex to set up and a dream to fly. This kit offers great STEM teaching opportunities.

This kit includes everything necessary for an advanced STEM learning experience.    This kit includes:

  • Advanced carbon fiber frame
  • Open Source Flight Controller (Pixhawk)
  • 500mm Carbon Fiber Frame
  • All necessary cables
  • 2 - Lithium Polymer Battery and a charger
  • 30A 4-in-1 Multi-Rotor Electronic Speed Controllers
  • Brushless DC Motors and propellers
  • Remote transmitter and receiver
  • Safety equipment

Technical Description:

The ARISE Kit features a quadcopter drone frame with all required components. The quadcopter can be assembled and disassembled for repeated use. It is GPS stabilized and has multiple flight modes. telemetry can be used to plan and upload missions to the drone for automobiles flight.

Downloadable software along with the included USB computer– aircraft interface cable, allows students to configure, adjust and manipulate setting to the aircraft’s flight computer to add to the STEM learning experience. These setting include sensor gains, calibrating the electronic compass, flight computer and the remote controller.

Safety Features:

As an added safety feature:

  • Fail Safe “Return-To-Home and Land” (RTH) feature - ensure the aircraft can always be retrieved
  • Geo-fence limiters - keep the drone in sight and avoid violating FAA altitude rule
  • A battery low voltage warning  - lets you know its time change it out
  • Additional safety equipment

The ARISE has waypoint / autonomous flight capabilities built in so you can operate the aircraft in full autonomous mode.

This kit is designed to carry payloads and includes additional plates and standoffs for mounting them.

Our systems are tested and offer the best reliability and safety, are challenging for students but not overly complicated for them to build, configure and fly.
