How to make a flying, racing drone business card

You want to make a business card that stands out, right?

Marque Cornblatt, Founder and CEO of the Aerial Sports League has the coolest business card in town, and he wants to share it with the rest of us.

Cornblatt turned his business card into a tiny racing drone, complete with FPV. It’s made from one single 3D printed card and parts from a Blade Inductrix Micro Quad (you may know it as the Tiny Whoop).

And, at 22.6 grams, you won’t even have to register it!

Here’s how the drone business card is done:

You can download all the files to make your own right here on ASLCertified’s Thingiverse.

Own your drone (and paint it too)

I’ve seen a lot of drones, but very few personally painted drones!

I just put together this 3DR Y6 drone for a project at work, but once it was successfully put together according to the manual, I took it home for a fun project that is nowhere on the manual – painting!

Own your drone, and distinguish it from all the other drones when you’re out at meetups, or just happen to work in an offer where there are copters everywhere.

This first drone I painted was space inspired, fitting with the whole flying theme, right?

It was painted using nothing but nail polish!

See the picture below to see what it used to look like. Hopefully I don’t get trolled too hard for this, but that’s what you get when you go out on  a limb and own your drone.

Plus I put it together myself, so I can do whatever I want with it, right?
