Our Inspired Vision

Founded in 2016 as a UAV components manufacturer, Inspired Flight patented the Bernoulli 3 motor, the first industrial UAV motor to successfully integrate an ESC for maximum efficiency & in-field replacement.

In early 2018 came the introduction of Inspired Flight’s first complete commercial UAV platform, this initial release has grown into what is now the IF750 and IF1000 series of quadcopters, serving industries across the globe.

From those initial prototypes to full-scale production today, Inspired Flight takes pride in innovating and growing the domestic UAS market by committing to manufacturing in San Luis Obispo, California.
