Have a Merry Christmas and a great 2019. We will be back with a small crew on January 2nd and with full capacity on January 7th 2019

For several years now we cooperate successfully with universities realising innovative projects such as AVIGLE  or the ZIM project. Therefore, aspiring engineers get the chance to set theoretical knowledge into practical context. This is also especially offered in the UPBracing Team.

Microdrones Merges with Schübeler Technologies


Siegen, Germany- As part of ongoing global expansion, Microdrones is proud to announce a merger with Schübeler Technologies. Since its founding in 1997, Schübeler has built a global business by providing advanced fan propulsion jets and lightweight composite materials fabrication. 


Offering a full product lineup of robust turbo fans, jets, compressors, pumps, electric motors, carbon fiber and aluminum composites, Schübeler products are designed to withstand extreme conditions and demanding field use. These components provide thrust power and lightweight durability to high tech applications including UAVs, professional motorsports and heavy duty outdoor equipment. 


The Neva Aerospace consortium has announced its partnership with German ducted fan pioneer, Schübeler.

Founded in 1997 by Daniel Schübeler and now led by Daniel Schübeler and Sandro Pinent, Schübeler Composite has won worldwide recognition in the design and development of electric ducted fans (EDF). As a new consortium member, it brings to Neva additional expertise in the development of electric fans. Neva Aerospace has patented the core technologies driving its vision of new heavy aerial industrial robotics for the industry. Long distance heavy drones that can be used in civil airspace and maintenance and construction robotics’ applications. It has also achieved successful prototype flights to prove its concepts

The DHL Paketkopter research project has been continued in 2015. The choice fell on a strongly modified tiltwing which fulfils its tasks successfully and reliably.

Working with lightweight design composites such as CFRP is our daily business. Due to its characteristics and versatile fields of application by now this material is utilized beyond industry and motorsports. For the external observer at first sight it seems unusual to make use of it in Canoeing as well. However, when taking a second look it is easily apparent that the advantageous characteristics of this material perfectly qualify CFRP for that very field: the canoeist wishes from his paddle that it is as light in weight as possible and the same time provides enough stiffness in order to withstand the load when pulling it through the water.

Efficient lightweight design only works out when backed up with well-matched simulations and this is an approach we follow for years now. Among other codes we use SimScale for FEA simulations with isotropic materials. Click on the link below to learn more:
