Get ready for a new game in town!
Tired of wrecking your drone? Afraid of bumping into
buildings, trees or your neighbor?
The Graupner DRONEBALL SWEEPER makes an end to all those
The SWEEPER is a drone with the shape of a ball where propellers,
battery and electronics are securely protected by a high density but very
flexible frame that can withstand head to head collisions against objects or
other SWEEPER drones.
The SWEEPER does not require any prior skills to fly!
The core of the SWEEPER is around a newly designed flight controller,
4in1 speed controller and powerful motors. The SWEEPER can be flown in mild or
wild mode depending on your experience. It has a very wide flight envelope that
will even excite the most seasoned drone and copter pilot.
The built-in telemetry warns the SWEEPER pilot prior to
battery depletion or when flying out of range. As with all of Graupner’s HoTT
systems, you can fly and fine tune the SWEEPER with your existing Graupner radio
or use the supplied mz-8p.
DRONEBALL is the latest trend in multirotor sports with the
main differentiation that it can be played both individually and as a team. The
game options are endless and only limited by your imagination.
You can play DRONEBALL on a basketball field playing a one
on one game where each player gets his turn to score while the other player
defends the hoop, or you can have two teams playing against each other for the
The SWEEPER lends itself extremely well for playing soccer
with short goals or you can make your own using plastic tubing and nets. There
are many inexpensive pop-up soccer goals available online.
There is nothing more exciting as a good racing match against
your opponents following a pre-set track using our highly visible gates and cubes
for a game of racing. Develop your piloting skills to nail down the best time
and become the champion of the day!
If you are looking for the ultimate drone for playing drone wars, the SWEEPER has the power and strength to knock any opponent out of the air! Just aim and slam the throttle for a direct hit!
Use your imagination and fly the SWEEPER indoor or outdoor
for some healthy entertainment.

The best entertainment I had in a long time!
I bought one at the AMA show and soon realized that my whole family can fly the droneball so I bought 2 more! The ball is extremely strong. I don’t know how groupner did it but this thing can take anything! I am using a bigger battery (4S 1800 Tattu 75C) and get between 4-5 minutes flight time. The supplied charger works fine but is slow. Get another one if you have the money that can charger several battery in parallel. Also bought a couple of gates from them (don’t buy the small ones) and we are having a blast chasing one another.
Surprisingly the droneball handles wind very well so its great indoors as outdoors. It’s a bit pricy but worth the money considering that after over 50 flights I have not broken anything!

Poor battery and charger
Mostly happy with this purchase. Having fun learning to fly it. The only issue with this purchase is the Battery and charger that are included. The battery is not very good. A four cell battery that only charges to about 4.15 volts per cell with the supplied charger. When charged there is .2 volt difference between the cells and when discharged up to .4 volt difference between some cells compared to others. This in my opinion is unacceptable for brand new LIPO batteries.

The Sweeper is simple flying fun. Flying the Sweeper is very easy, and with different modes of flight the Sweeper controls how you want it to. Unlike other quadcopters, when the Sweeper crashes you can just get right back up again. Once you have more than one flying together it gets really fun. Because of the cage you can bounce off the ground, Fly into walls, and fly into another Sweeper! Differently colored cages are available so that you can get the color you want, and the lights can change color too.

I received my Droneball from Graupner a couple days ago and just now tried it out in our small backyard. This thing is a hoot! I test flew it on the number 2 rate position on the TX. It has plenty of power and is very responsive on throttle. I was bouncing it off the patio and my shoes, and making fast circuits around the yard. It's very controllable and easy to fly. You guys have a winner here!

The DroneBall Sweeper is a blast!! About 5 minutes of amazing flight. The lights all the way around the middle offer great visual orientation and the flexible outer ball is surprisingly durable. Can't wait to fly with another one to try out all the great game ideas.
Graupner has a winner with this drone. Has the ability to mount and FPV system on it, too. The charger is great and offers a pretty quick charge. More batteries coming soon for more flying fun!!
Great job Graupner! Congrats on a fun, versatile and durable drone. Watching it bounce off things is a hoot! Winner!!!!
