We invite you to participate in the annual hackathon on COEX Clover Code quadcopters!
COEX is organizing a third annual hackathon that will take place in Moscow - CopterHack 2019.

CopterHack is a traditional annual event, which unites amateur and professional fans of drones from all over the Russia and the world! In 2018, the competition was joined by 30 teams, totaling at 200 people! This year we are expecting international participants and teams to debut in our hackathon.

The invitation extends to school seniors, students and college and university graduates with interest in unmanned aerial systems, knowledge in the fields of aerodynamics, electrical engineering and programming skills. This is an excellent opportunity to work on an interesting project in an excellent company.

Here you can have a look how it went in 2018:
CopterHack 2018
Copter Express (COEX) is a researcher and developer of industrial drones. The company's quadcopters are designed for educational purposes, autonomous monitoring of different types of areas and aerial cargo delivery. The company produces two product lines: programmable quadcopter constructor kit COEX Clover and industrial autonomous drone COEX Pelican for monitoring of different types of areas and aerial cargo delivery. On the basis of COEX, the FabLab "Copter" was opened, where development activities are being held on the design, assembly, tuning, piloting and programming of multikopter.
