Have a question?
I second the last post, bring back Tanky!!
Bring back the Tanky!
Shame we didn't meet the target, third time lucky. When you get it going, you will have my backing!
I've done my best to back you guys.
Thank you everyone for the incredible amount of support. Just like many of you, we have been holding our fingers crossed till the last moment. We received a nice boost at the very end, but sadly it wasn't enough. Please stay tuned and follow us on Kickstarter, and after regrouping and figuring out a few things we will announce what our next step will be. Have a very happy Holliday season!
Sorry to see this fail.
Hope you can have better luck next time.
How close did you guys come last time and congrats regardless of outcome
Omg i cant take it oooohhh i want a tanky drone for xmas not any other drone will do and repeat
Were is santa clause when you need him or is it the grinch...
Looks like this is going to be a edge-of-your-seat finish!! Welcome to all the new backers, remember, these will make great gifts :)
Hi Ron. There supposed to be a video in the prototype gallery of the mechanism, but it doesn't show up for some reason. There is a shot of the mechanism in the main video at 1:20 min mark. The current mechanism uses an angular servo with a CF linkage, but for final design we want to use a linear servo for better degree of motion.
I am definitely looking forward to my Super Early Bird RTF Tanky! May I ask you to provide some details on the camera servo tilt setup? A picture or two without the side plates would be terrific. Did you design a custom mechanism? Is the servo connected to the camera directly, or by a linkage rod? What servo did you select? Thank you very much and best wishes for the campaign to be a success!
If we were to get our hands on these and a bunch of reviews were out there im sure they would sell
How close does it have to be for team tanky to cover the rest. Sorry had to ask understand if no response good luck
Fingers crossed final push and good luck tanky
Great news about being featured!
Hi Rory. Sorry if we missed your email, I just replied to your message on Kickstarter. For the benefit of others, I just wanted to reiterate that we are not planning to sell the prototypes at the moment because we are still planning on putting Tanky into production in one way or another.
Dominik and jdaiglejr, If this campaign is not successful, we will likely try again. When and how we are not sure yet, we have another plan to try getting Tanky into production. We will keep all of our backers updated via Kickstarter.
Aaron, don't worry about it, and thanks for all the feedback and support.
Oh, also, a bit of cool news. We are at the moment the featured project in the Technology category! https://www.kickstarter.com/discover/categories/technology
Hi I have sent you a couple of emails with no response I am just wondering if you are checking them before the end of the campaign or not?
Hi. What/when is "round three"?
Sorry team tanky i just really wanted this didnt mean to be rude
I will be there for round 3 as well if needed but I hope we will reach the goal this time :)!
Kinoss, we are using HS1177 for our prototypes. For the final design, we may stick with HS1177 because we really love it or switch to one of the other designs such as the HS1190 or others. We'll choose the best available at the moment.
Rylan, thank you so much for your amazing support! We look forward to making Tanky for you!
What cam are you using?
If Tanky doesn't succeed in the next 71 hours I'll still support it on round 3; and as a positive I'll be sure to get the campaign start time right this time so I can get a Super Early Bird RTF =P. I was 2 hours late in my time.. oh time zones!
Alexey that was pretty dirty think if team tanky did that shit to you..
And maybe they should
Alexey is actually on of the engineers on that nimbus project lol as u can see bro we want tanky drones not a carbon fiber ball with props ��
Tristan, yes, for sure we will create a community forum around Tanky for technical support and to organize events and for people to talk about Tanky and drones in general. Thank you for the support!
Alexey, thanks for backing us for one whole dollar in order to leave that comment, and best of luck with your project. We have also considered doing a flexible campaign on Indiegogo but chose not to do that because we value our backers and their faith in our product, and would never take a cent from anyone unless we were sure that we could deliver an outstanding product. We know what's involved in producing an outstanding product and how factory minimums work. In any case, all the best to you, and best of luck to your backers.
Hey Alex, I see that you just signed up for Kickstarter and this is the one and only project you have backed. Coincidentally you recommend a project that just launched out of Russia on indiegogo. Now I agree that Tanky could have run this campaign a bit better but really, kind of a d bag move on your part, I would rather figure out how to build my own drone than support you. Best wishes, Tristan.

We need backers to stop pulling out...
Is there going to be a forum for this if it gets funded? Would be great to meet up and race other Tanky owners :-)
Not much to go! Great to see the project is over the 100K mark, just need that last little push.. Fingers crossed for you Bogdan and team at Tanky.
@ Aaron Rohleder, Support the project, not Slate the project. Be respectful......
By the way that radio link interview I've looked for it and nope i cant find it on there site not trying to disrespect you but COME ON MAN and yes i seen Rygel video and by the way i seen you didnt like bangood soldering gun no power cord lol
If this dont work atom v2 for me or crusader gt v2
Common ... It is still do able. I really want to have one of the nice Tanky :)!
Tristan, that's not a bad idea! We will print some cards out and send them to the backers who request them, and we will have a digital copy available as well.
I know these won't ship until next year but can we get some kind of a cool card or something to hand people as gifts? Something to let them know what is coming :)
We are close just need a bump in the right direction hit your local hobby shops draw some interest buy tanky if i could buy some extra stuff like you can include up to 2 batteries i believe but no more. extra skins give me away to spend more it might help
Im only trying to help maybe they needed to here it but your right and i apologise hope all goes well
@Aaron, Be a little more respectful..
Good luck we could've helped you if you would have provided us with content to share a conversation about the industry does not help me help you... help me get the awesome looking tanky
Thats it you'll need more then that
Gabriel, we have been pestering Kickstarter for a few weeks now, but no luck so far. We did just wrapped up an interview on 102.5FM in San Francisco, so that should give us a bit of a bump. Thanks for the support.
No it looks like they dont care they wont produce any new footage of tanky to even help promote it looks like ill have to look for something else what a shame
Anything being done to get more people to support this great drone would hate for the goal not to be met.
Hi Braden. You can find the manual for the TBS Tango here:
It's basically just a matter of taking off the back and adjusting a few screws to change which stick is sprung. Takes about 10 min or so.
Look it up i do no it is very simplistic not a lot of options
I don't know much about the controller that comes with the RTF, can anyone tell me is it as easy as it seems to change the mode from 1,2,3,4? I am trying to figure out which I prefer.
I agree with Mark McEntyre, please check and see if Kickstarter can feature the Tanky project in some way, Hopefully just another spike in interest will send the project over the $150K hump.
