MEP EP#22: Quirky Quadcopters with Scott Shawcroft – @chickadee_tech @MacroFab

MEP EP#22: Quirky Quadcopters with Scott Shawcroft – MacroFab.

Scott Shawcroft of Chickadee Tech is our guest on this weeks podcast. He is working on a modular flight control system called Polystack. It has 13 different boards that can be stacked together. Similar to shields for the Arduino platform. Scott is down here in Houston visiting MacroFab to see his production-run being built, while working on his test fixture with us.

Huh, this is really neat – MacroFab has a podcast and is the assembler/maker of this product with Scott – smart.

Scott was on our show and tell and we asked if we could post about all this – yes!

My website is: https://chickadee.tech – MacroFab’s is: https://macrofab.com/ They are great for low volume manufacturing. I did an order of singles that was reasonably priced and am now doing a larger batch of six panels for the first production order. They’ll also do testing, kitting and fulfillment for me.

Abel, their marketing person, also gave me a link to their press kit here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/mtfcu5kqr04pyw0/AADFBmUH0oRtSJlCDGHsEAaba?dl=0
