Measure Drone Performance 

Thrust stands designed for all types of drones from quadcopters to eVTOL

Series 1580 drone test stand in enclosure

Small Drone Test Stand

For small to medium drones under 20 kg (44 lb)

The Series 1580 test stand can help you test small and medium sized quadcopters to find which components best suit your specific drone design.

A poor motor-propeller match can lead to an overall efficiency of <35%. At Tyto Robotics, we know that testing your drone's propulsion system is key to improving your efficiency and becoming a leader in this competitive market.

Fixed-Wing Drone Testing

Extend drone flight time for long-duration missions

Fixed-wing drones can be tested with our test stands in combination with a WindShaper wind generator to evaluate overall efficiency.

We offer accessories to record the wind velocity as well as the temperature of your propulsion system. This can help you perform various analyses regarding your drone's aerodynamics in order to improve its flight time and reliability.

Coaxial Drone Testing

Test coaxial rotors up to 75 kgf

The Series 1780 - Coaxial version allows you to test two propellers and motors simultaneously with up to 75 kgf of thrust per propeller (150 kgf in total).

The data acquisition software provided with the test stand allows you to characterize the motors and propellers individually as well as recording the general performance of the system.
