This paper discusses the design of a portable drone to be used by students for practical investigations of drone operating principles. The drone design is based on a Y6 frame module concept and takes into account the affordability and combinability of components which are widely available via the hobbyist drone manufacturing market. It is a foldable device and is protected against water ingress according standard DIN EN 60529 (IP01). The drone generates high thrust for a Maximum Take-off Mass (MTOM) of 5 kg and the propeller design has been investigated and analysed in detail to determine the optimum location required to provide maximum thrust.
