RobotShop Continues its Expansion in the UAV Market by Acquiring FlyingEinstein's Technology
RobotShop announced today the acquisition of the technology behind Flying Einstein LLC, a manufacturer based in Florida that designs and produces flight controllers for UAVs and drones. “Since our arrival in the drone market ten months ago, our UAV team led by Eric Nantel (a.k.a. DiaLFonZo) quickly observed the need for an easy to use, plug-and-play flight controller supporting all MultiWii features.” indicated Mario Tremblay, CEO of RobotShop. “After analysing our community's needs, we saw everything we wanted was already included in the Quadrino from FlyingEinstein and a new partnership will give more support to the MultiWii community and bring our UAV platforms to the next level."
