BFD Systems (which is now part of FreeFly systems) is a UAV hardware development and integration company. They "specialize in large industrial multi-rotors for heavy lift payloads, long endurance flights, gas hybrid UAVs, hydrogen fuel cell, and tethered UAV solutions."
These machined components are for a landing gear assembly that was created with the intention of making drone assembly + disassembly a smoother and quicker process.
The product went through multiple iterations of prototyping utilizing 3D printing and machined parts. The tolerancing was a crucial element to this project since the assembly needed a snug fit without jamming up. The components needed to be durable and lightweight to contribute to the larger system's success.
