Dear Kickstarter Backers,

Please watch the video below. We are sorry for inconvenience. 

   

 Message from Kickstarter:

Stretch Goals! 

In true holiday fashion, we managed to surpass our initial goal in just a few days. Due to that accomplishment, we are introducing a stretch goal.

Stretch goal #1: With $200,000 we will be able to extend the already long 1.2 mile range of the FLYBi to 3 miles.

FLYBi

The world’s first camera equipped drone that tracks your head movement, streaming its view right to your virtual reality goggles! Share your aerial adventures with your friends, and explore from the skies together!

 What Beta Testers Are Raving About:

Our Story:

     The idea for FLYBI first came about when we took a trip to the 2014 Drone Expo in Los Angeles. 

     Inspired by the fascinating new drones being created, as well as their various functions and uses, we decided that we should build our own drone – a drone capable of doing things never before seen on any other air-bound remote control craft. 

     Upon return, we immediately got working on the initial renderings of our drone – placing the vital pieces together, and experimenting with different layouts and designs. We started off with the traditional, quadrocopter, and developed FLYBi from there. Using rough materials, hard work and solid manufacturing processes, we patiently began to see our vision come together. The first piece of innovative technology we introduced to our drone was the obstacle-avoidance system, which uses sensors to inform the drone when an object is near, steering it to safety. 

     For six months we continued to work away at our design. Measuring, cutting, soldiering, crimping, programming, researching the best parts available… And then testing, refining, testing, refining again… Until we finally had our initial prototype ready to take flight. Our drone flew beautifully, exactly as imagined, with perfect control and command over the skies. However, while very happy with its performance, we knew our initial design would not make the cut on the market… 

     We then invited Jonathan, an experienced product designer. Thanks to Jonathan’s countless hours of brainstorming, innovation, the design for the FLYBi we know of today came together. Jonathan’s renderings evolved over time, creating not only a very attractive design, but also a perfectly functional prototype.  A month later Alex and Jorge, two highly-gifted engineers, in order to help further develop our ideas into a reality. And we continued on our journey…

     Little by little, the FLYBi came to life… from fabricating the design, to equipping it with all the necessary electronics, to developing and implementing the head-tracking technology into the goggles, seeing the FLYBi in its finalized form was literally watching a dream come true. In actual flight tests, the FLYBi exceeded all of our expectations, flying with ease and complete control, while seamlessly transmitting what it was seeing while in flight. 

     Now we are asking for your help to make our next feature of the FLYBi a reality. Live video streaming and broadcasting. Video from FPV camera on the drone will stream directly to your smartphone and broadcasted online to our dedicated servers. From that point anyone in the world can download FLYBi app, snap the smart phone right into virtual reality goggles and share a flight with you. Much like an aerial Periscope! 

     With your pre-order of the FLYBi, not only will you get a FLYBi or related accessory for yourself, but you will help us to further develop and equip every FLYBi with this advanced video-streaming technology.

Referral Program :

We want you to be rewarded for sharing this FLYBi campaign. Here is what you will be rewarded with, just for spreading the word: Reward:

If your friends spend $500+, you get a $25. If your friends spend $1,500+, you get $105. If your friends spend $3,000+, you get $300.

Risks and challenges

Our team is comprised of seasoned entrepreneurs, product developers, robotic engineers, and supply chain experts with more than 30 years of entrepreneurial and manufacturing experience, so rest assured the product will exceed your expectations.

We have done a decent work, so the risks are minimal. We have identified and locked in our manufacturers who will be able to ship within several months of successful project funding.

What you are seeing is a prototype, so the final product may be slightly different from what you see but will be definetely supreme quality. The major issues that we expect are related to software development and VR technology integration. Development of smooth video transmission, VR and streaming solutions can take us more time than expected. Despite that we plan to deliver the hardware on time and upgrade your products with VR streaming feature after we finish software development.
