EPTA Design tried to imagine a small, compact drone concept with a "clean" language inspired by the desig objects of the 70s.
EPTA Design, too often inclined to create a design loaded and exaggerated, with this drone wants to demonstrate the ability to create a clean and elegant design.
For the trim and color we were inspired by nature.
The white shark (with inverted colors) was a great inspiration for us: Observed from below, the drone will be dark to contrast with the light of the sky.
The upper surface, glossy and white is in contrast with the lower part: Black and opaque...
The architecture is simple, but the primitive volumes (the plane and the cylinder) are treated to give continuity to the overall forms.
Inspired by light design we thought of giving "life" to the drone by making it interact with the pilot on the ground.
The lateral light, diffused by semi-transparent platelets, changes from "Water blue" to "Purple", indicating the state of the batteries or if the memory in the card is running out.

A characteristic of this drone they are multifunctional legs. Inside the cylindrical volume of the legs, the space located the electric motor, the position lights and the amortized little feet.
The rear fin (inspired by the shark fin but reversed) serves as a lever to open the rear compartment of the batteries. This is one of the few details of "pure style" which, however, joins the function anyway.
