Back by popular demand! MyMiniFactory and Extreme Fliers have returned with Micro Drone 3.0 Design competition (Part 2). Due to the amount of amazing submissions we received from the first competition and the incredible success of the Micro Drone Indiegogo campaign, we have decided to see what else the community could come up with!

This is a call for all 3D designers to submit 3D designs to the competition page and enter the competition. If you are not a 3D designer but would like to take part then you can submit a sketch or drawing of your idea into the competition. However, if you would like to enter a Sketched idea please submit it as a zip file. Micro Drone will be bringing your sketched ideas to life with their modelling team; the best ones will be placed into the competition.

We want you to use your creativity to create awesome looking drone shrouds; turn the standard Micro Drone 3.0 into something epic! This design brief is open to anyone, so get those creative juices flowing and see what you can come up with! The top 3 designs with the most downloads at the end of the voting period will receive a brand new Micro Drone 3.0 with their submitted design attached to the drone. This Design competition is open for all, so download the Drone template from the competition page and start designing today!
