The Mighty Midget range of motors and Sky Scope range of drones are made by the father and son team of N.Chandrashekhar and Uttam.
Chandrashekhar is an electronic engineer by profession,with thirty five years experience with advanced analytical instruments, medical diagnostic equipment, industrial and defense related electronic equipment. He runs D.C.Enterprises, engaged in the design and manufacture of electronic communication components used in defense applications.His main skills consist of synthesis of new designs based on in-depth, critical analysis of existing designs in micro engineering, and engineering innovation, using a vast pool of knowledge of material science and manufacturing methods, both conventional and modern, making it possible to produce reliable products, that pose a challenge by virtue of a small market, a situation in which conventional production techniques fail to be economically viable. Chandrashekhar’s passion for miniature engineering started as early as 1969, at which time he designed and made, mostly from scrap materials, a micro lathe measuring only 15cm. in length and powered by a mains operated synchronous motor also designed and built by him, for the application.
