Saadiq Jacobs

Drone Operations Manager

Having spent much of his childhood disassembling and rebuilding anything he could get his hands on, Saadiq developed a penchant for discovering how things work.

Saadiq is the creator and founder of FPV racing drone brand, EchoQuad, renowned for pushing boundaries in quad design. He started flying and building drones in 2010, and shortly thereafter, in 2012, he started designing drones. His interest in drone design was sparked by the realisation that affordable drones were not easily accessible to South Africans at the time.

When he is not flying and designing drones for work-related purposes, he flies FPV mini racers for fun. Saadiq attained his Remote Pilot Licence (RPL) in 2016.
