Introducing BoxBotix and the BBots

The idea for BoxBotix has evolved over the last several years. We run a small shop that produces CNC foam cores and other, similar parts for R/C aircraft and small UAV’s. We get a lot of emails and phone calls from people trying to fly sensors but lack the robot to put them on. So we decided to see if we could design something that was easy to modify/hack, make, build, use and sustain. All Open Source. BoxBotix is the result.

For now, we are happy to introduce the first two prototypes in the BoxBotix ecosystem. We call them BBots in general, and more specifically, BBCopter and BBRover for the first two. We are still working on BBPlane and other BBot variants. Before we release any more details we are also working on cleaning up our designs, documentation and a long list of todo’s. At the top of that list is finding tools/people/funding to properly create and manage a new community. Not a small endeavor to do it right. Meantime, just a few pictures to give you an idea of where we are headed…
