Universal innovation platform

Acecore Developer has been created to enable developers and integrators from different fields to get a slice of the drone industry’s pie. Without having to build and develop their own UAV from scratch. Acecore have been designing and assembling professional UAS since 2013, and now offers its three platforms to third party developers.


Companies that are active in the field of (payload) cameras, sensors, flight controller software or artificial intelligence/ autonomy can build upon the tried and true Acecore UAV platforms to eventually distribute their own OEM product. There are different engineering support packages available for when things get too complicated along the way.


Modular design

The three developer edition drones that Acecore offers were designed with modularity in mind. Many integral parts are swappable and upgradable. Batteries, landing gears and entire booms can be interchanged to ensure a future proof system as the fundament for your innovation. Smaller electronics such as the ESCs and flight controller can be removed and replaced as well to fit your requirements. As part of the special terms & conditions, users are allowed to make these alterations theirselves.


Add onto the bare bone developer drone until you end up with a bespoke solution that you are ready to go to market with as an OEM.

Mounting options

Sensors, antennas and microcomputers can all be easily mounted on the drone’s in- and outside. There’s different mounting points available, the main one being the internally stabilized Gremsy quick release. The QR is mounted onto the drone using quad wire dampers to cancel out most of the vibrations that occur during flight. This basic stabilization will suffice for applications such as LiDAR and delivery. For absolute stability, using a Gremsy gimbal is advised.


There is enough interior space available to integrate custom hardware such as raspberry pi’s, flight controller or other modules. These electronics are cooled by the drones active airflow and weather sealed by the carbon fiber monocoque.

We understand the success secrets of the world's most successful business teams.

Cube Autopilot

The (blue/ orange/ black) Cube flight-controller comes pre installed in every Acecore developer edition drone. It’s an open source autopilot that is based off of the Pixhawk 2.1 project, that has 3 temperature controlled IMU sensors for redundancy. As standard, the flight-controller runs the latest ArduCopter firmware with parameters set to a proper base level. However, developer can retune the flight-controller to alter the drone’s flight characteristics.


Developers may also choose to either run PX4 on the installed Cube, or swap out the flight controller entirely and replace it with a Auterion Skynode, Collin Aerospace Piccolo, UAVOS or any other system they see fit.


Each developers edition drone comes with a 24-channel FrSky X10S transmitter running the ACCESS communication protocol. This remote controller is supplied so users can fly the drone straight out of the box. Developers could choose to swap the Frsky for a Panasonic Toughpad, Hex Herelink or other controller in a later stage depending on their solution.

Spare parts

When innovating and experimenting with new hardware, software and parameters; things can go wrong. There will be crashes and other misfortunes. For the first time ever, Acecore offers its developers additional spare parts to repair and replace damaged components theirselves. Guided by training videos and online support, users will be able to swap uit entire pre-fabricated booms to get their developers kit up and running again.
