Once a trend has earned a dedicated exhibition zone at one of the world's largest digital industry events, it's a sure sign things are getting serious. In Unmanned Systems & Solutions this year in Hannover, visitors can learn everything there is to know about the world of drones and unmanned systems. With its wide range of exhibits, conferences and demonstrations of practical uses, CeBIT offers everything under one roof. But this doesn't mean there's no chance to play. HALOGENKAUF LIGHTECH GmbH from Schwarmstedt, just north of Hannover, is showcasing two fascinating build-it-yourself drone models that are not very far removed from everyone’s favorite childhood construction kit.
The DS24 brick quadcopter and hexacopter are made up of drone components that are child's play to assemble and can be ready for take-off within just a few minutes. The kits each contain a selection of multi-colored bricks, four or six motors including mounts, a circuit board, propeller set, rechargeable battery and remote control - that's everything you need to get your fully-fledged drone off the ground. Besides these novel starter copters for youngsters and the young-at-heart, HALOGENKAUF LIGHTECH GmbH also has some very serious kit for grown-up applications. The company is running live demos of the Yuneec, Walkera, DJI, Zerotech, Syma and Parrot multicopters from "Drohnenstore24.de" as well as its own Drohnenstore24 drones. The product innovations on show include Typhoon H Pro from Yuneec, DJI’s Mavic, Zerotech’s Dobby and Walkera’s Rodeo 110.
