This week we want you to create a project that includes a consumer drone, then simply tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #drone.

Drones are everywhere these days and it's hard not to get sucked into the fun. They have to be one of the coolest innovations in decades. They have come so far recently and can't wait to see what the possibilities hold. For this week's challenge, you are tasked with picking an existing consumer drone product and creating it in 2D or 3D. You could go for a Mini Pocket Drone, something from the popular Mavic range, or maybe push yourself and create a specialised high-end drone for  photography and surveillance.

To get some feedback on your work-in-progress project before you submit it, head over to Discord channel and chat with other artists having a crack. To see all the Weekly Drill projects just follow this link.

Weekly Drill #40 - DJI Spark | The Rookies
When I saw a subject of next weekly drill I was very happy, because I wanted to try myself in modeling a drone in a near future. Drones are so useful these days, but they are also a tiny work of art. Each one has interesting shape and cool design. Model made in Maya, textured in Substance and render…
#WeeklyDrills040 -- ANAFI 4k Thermal Drone | The Rookies
For this week’s Drone challenge, I decided to model an ANAFI 4k Thermal Drone by Parrott (references at the bottom). I was inspired by thermal images -- in particular the ability for that drone capability to assist with treatment & rescue efforts associated with raging fires.
