Get ready for a new game in town!

From Graupner...

Tired of wrecking your drone? Afraid of bumping into buildings, trees or your neighbor?

The Graupner DRONEBALL SWEEPER makes an end to all those fears!

The SWEEPER is a drone with the shape of a ball where propellers, battery and electronics are securely protected by a high density but very flexible frame that can withstand head to head collisions against objects or other SWEEPER drones.

The SWEEPER does not require any prior skills to fly. However, the numerous game play options possible with the SWEEPER requires team play and strategic skills to beat your opponents.

The core of the SWEEPER is around a newly designed flight controller, 4in1 speed controller and powerful motors. The SWEEPER can be flown in mild or wild mode depending on your situation. It has a very wide flight envelope that will even excite the most seasoned drone and copter pilot.

The built-in telemetry warns the SWEEPER pilot prior to battery depletion or when flying out of range. As with all of Graupnerís HoTT systems, you can fly and fine tune the SWEEPER with your existing Graupner radio or use the supplied mz-8p.

GAME PLAY

DRONEBALL is the latest trend in multirotor sports with the main differentiation that it can be played both individually and as a team. The game options are endless and only limited by your imagination.

You can play DRONEBALL on a basketball field playing a one on one game where each player gets his turn to score while the other player defends the hoop, or you can have two teams playing against each other for the highest score within 3 minutes.

The SWEEPER lends itself extremely well for playing soccer with short goals or you can make your own using plastic tubing and nets. There are many inexpensive pop-up soccer goals available online.

It's a Drone it's a Ball it's the Graupner SWEEPER Droneball! (2 min 52 sec)

There is nothing more exciting as a good racing match against your opponents following a pre-set track using our highly visible gates and cubes for a game of racing. Develop your piloting skills to nail down the best time and become the champion of the day!

Use your imagination and fly the SWEEPER indoor or outdoor for some healthy entertainment.
