CRP Technology has released a case study discussing the company’s involvement in the construction of Flying-Cam’s new unmanned aerial system (UAS), Discovery, manufacturing the drone’s tail rotor gear box housing, which is the main housing, attached to the main tail boom. Read more > >


The aim was to create a lightweight yet rigid physical and aerodynamic protection for the tail rotor actuators and the GPS antenna of the Discovery unmanned single rotor helicopter.

CRP Technology, according to FLYING-CAM’s requirements and standard, opted for a 3D printing process with composite polymers fiber-reinforced (Powder Bed Fusion – PBF; specifically Selective Laser Sintering)  and Windform® XT 2.0 as construction material.

Windform XT 2.0 is a carbon fiber filled polyamide based 3D printing composite, particularly suitable in demanding applications for such a sector as motorsports, aerospace, and UAV.

The mechanical and thermal properties of Windform materials are strictly connected to the characteristics of the 3D printing manufacturing process. Indeed, the combination of both produces unparalleled, highly technological 3D printed parts, ready to be used.
