The CoDrone is a quadcopter that you can easily program using our friendly, step-by-step videos. Whether you are brand new to drones and coding or you're a longtime drone lover, you will have a blast with the CoDrone.

With the CoDrone package, you can follow step-by-step tutorials and invent all kinds of cool applications. Going all the way from simply by making the drone fly to having it follow people or even battle other CoDrones. Using various sensors and on-board camera, CoDrone can follow people around. For Laser Tagging battle, you can do utilize attacks and shoot missiles that use infrared sensors. On robolink.com/community, we provide easy-to-follow videos so that users can pick up coding within 5 minutes and make their drone fly.

 Pledge Now for the Best Price 

The Codrone will retail for $179, but if you back our Kickstarter campaign, you can get it for a very special price!

Our project has been chosen as one of the top 10 breakthrough technologies at CES Last Gadget Standing!

Now in its 15th year, it is one of the best loved and longest running events at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Based on the notion that the crowd always knows best, the contest asks a live and online audience to pick the “most likely to succeed product”.

Risks and challenges

Most of the risks and challenges are behind us. We have completed a successful Kickstarter project (Rokit Smart) in 2015. Our team of experienced drones and robotics engineers poured their lives into designing this kit. Our kit has been tested by hundreds of users in California and Korea. Throughout the testing phase, we worked to perfect the kit based on the feedback of the users. These users had a blast working with our prototypes and were able to create some absolutely incredible machines. And now, CoDrone is ready for you. It's for people of all ages and all it's going to take is your support.

At this point, there is just one hurdle left: production. Many of the parts in this kit were custom-designed by our engineers and we have very exacting standards, so creating the molds and manufacturing the components can be very expensive. Thankfully, we have identified some top-tier factory partners who can produce our kits with a very quick turnaround time.

In order to bring the cost down to an affordable amount, we have to order at least 1,000 kits from the manufacturer. To get there, we are counting on you. Give $139 right now and we will put you on the list to be one of the first to receive a CoDrone, so you can start on your own adventure in drones and robotics!
