About

What is DropAQuad?

I developed an app that is not only user friendly and has a strong user experience and design but also is very efficient at two things:

• host and attend private, public or sponsored events.

• stay on top of the latest news, products, media and gear.

I started the hobby not too long ago but as a newcomer I quickly noticed there were some things missing:

1. Setting up meet-ups and keeping everyone updated about the location and time of the events can sometimes be daunting. 

2. Drones are one of the fastest growing communities; with new manufacturers, shops and organizations hosting more events than ever  its very hard to keep up. 

I realized everything would be much easier if I could have all the information in one place, while getting notified in realtime about changes, updates such as attendance, fees, weather and more. At the touch of a button in your mobile device. And so, I came up with DropAQuad.

By using geolocation, you will be able to see on the map where are the drone events located around you. There are 3 different types of events: sponsored, private and public.

Event Manager

You are able to create your own event and invite your friends. You can customize it by uploading photos, setting the time and date, and announcing an event fee (if any). You can also create a unique hashtag for your event, this will allow the images that other people post on Instagram to be fed into your event's gallery. Attendees will also be able to check in in real time so that you can see who is attending your event. 

MarketPlace

The one place to check out new parts, frames, gear and monthly coupons offered by popular shops and new manufacturers. Everything in one place.

DropAQuad is almost ready!

This is not a prototype app. The app has already been developed to an extent. In fact, we just launched our alpha version for testers to play with (want to become a tester? click here). It has taken the work of an team of developers, designers and supporters to put everything together into the amazing interface that it is. But there are features and fine tunes that we are still working on and we need your support. We've come this far and I want DropAQuad to be the the industry worthy app that it can be. So I'm asking for your help and involvement.

Meet our sponsors

We have partnered up with some of the finest drone shops to create our reward kits. Not only we know they have the quality the industry needs but they also support and recognize the importance of a tool like DropAQuad.

"Be part of the new ecosystem in the drone racing world"

SPONSORS
SPONSORS

If this project gets funded it would be the beginning of a new rich ecosystem which main purpose is to keep everyone informed, new manufacturers to get known, bring pilots closer to compete and new enthusiasts to get more involved in the industry.  

GATE KIT REWARDS

To better understand what you will be getting in each gate kit, I thought it was a good idea to make a little diagram which you can reference when picking the right set of gates.

Small Group

Is not small in size, Is a simplified version of the larger kit. We thought it would contain the essentials to get you and your team to compete or practice.

Large Group

This kits are intended for the complete experience, armed with boundry gates and the eventual AMAZING Key hole gate. This set will get you to push your limits and make the most out of the DropAQuad experience!

Risks and challenges

DropAQuad is a balanced ecosystem that relies on 2 fundamental pillars:

- Event Creation, Management and Exploration (70% developed)
- The Market place that keeps you in the loop of the latest in parts and deals (20% developed)

The App is being tested by drone pilots in different categories, we are currently implementing their feedback in the Beta Version that would be delivered to the backers of this project at the end of the campaign.

I'm planning in getting some video reviews to the kickstarter campaign from actual testers, That is how confident I am about my project.

DropAQuad will serve everyone to host their events and you will witness our growth as we gather more users in time. This is an open invitation to inventors, universities, shows and fairs to approach us and bring people in this community to get to know what your projects and events are all about. Perhaps this is one of our biggest challenges as we are starting from scratch and approach teams and leagues to use our tool as a method to reach a specific audience.

The app will be delivered in a working Beta stage for both versions where you can create an attend events. But it will be missing important information for those creating more complex events and some of the realtime features that would only be ready in the final stages.

If this project doesn't get funded it will take me way too long to deliver a full stable version of the app and many of promising features would only be ideas in a piece of paper. I believe the time is now! we need this ASAP!

I strongly believe that by funding this App we are making a strong foundation for what is to come to this hobby and the many uses this tool can perform. Aerial photographers, videographers, enthusiasts, this lasts lines are for you, enable me to give you an outstanding tool.

Thank you!
