HighCee Aerial Robotics

Flight systems

HighCee designs are rugged and easy to maintain, built with top quality components, many of which are produced in-house on our CNC and 3DP equipment.

All carbon fibre components are manufactured from Japanese sourced 3K sheet and spiral wrapped tube.  Structural tubing is double walled - usually 2mm thick to create a stiff and ridgid structure.  

Assemblies use precision CNC components, US sourced fasteners and industrial grade connectors for reliability in harsh environments.

Engineering support

All our designs are developed and manufactured in-house. This means that we can supply our clients with spares parts as needed, but we can also provide CAD details (.dxf) for local CNC production or 3D solid models (.stl) for local 3D printing.

Should you need adjustments - such as relocated or resized holes, specific cutouts or mounting pads for electronics, we can generally accommodate requests at no charge (within reason).
