  1. Dear all, Our group does battery research, specifically fast charging batteries and accurate state estimation, i.e, state of charge, time remaining etc. Drones are an interesting application, along with other EVs and consumer electronics like cell phones etc. We need suggestions for a drone that: Allows a flexible sized battery pack - This is our most crucial requirement. Most drones have a small, fixed sized battery pack that it works with. We want to have a drone that allows custom, multiple sized, shaped packs. Ex: DJI Matrice 100 . As per my understanding, the battery pack is velcroed in place, allowing for flexibility in battery pack sizing and shape. However, this drone is super costly, huge and a sword when we need a needle. Another worthy alternative we considered is: the Intel Aero Ready to fly drone, however, the battery pack size is very small (50x36x150). Looks like Qualcomm drone developer kit has a similar problem and parts are out of stock for a long time. We might need something like 150x150bx400mm to house our packs. Cheap (<= $2000) Light (<= 10 pounds) Easy to assemble/disassemble (so that we can showcase it in expos, conferences etc.) Any suggestion or guidance would be appreciated. Thanks
