      ..."pocket" drone it was certainly not. By the time they finally put it out, it was a dinosaur. One of the worst campaigns I have contributed to.....

      Just a reminder to myself these guys were the biggest cheating lying mutha fockers in kickstarter history. Think carefully before you back anything on kickstarter.

    5. michio KANAYA on February 21, 2017

      Why do not you response my post over 3 days.
      I can not understand your business mind and responsibility.
      Please say something, I need your words.

    6. michio KANAYA on February 17, 2017

      It takes over 1 year after your last update, I did not receive any product or information so that I bought parrot drone last Xmas because I can not wait your production postpone any more.

      Why I wait for over 1 year after your last update information?
      Why you did not inform me the status sincerely?

      As I mentioned before, I do not need your drone any more, so please get refund back quickly. Best regards.

    7. michio KANAYA on February 17, 2017

      Can I get full refund includes international shipping fee.

      I don't need your drone any more because I have already bought parrot drone.

      I am waiting for long time but your delivery is incredible, several postpone and few information update.

      Also, when I became your backer, your drone is very innovative and fun of me, but year by year, many of drone makers are launching more compact, powerful and low price with high technology.

      I understand your innovative technology will be great, but project and production management and business sense is too bad. I want to drop your backer and get refund to me sincerely.

      I wish I'd never backed this.
      It's my biggest Kickstarter regret.
      I never received the full unit I ordered, I sent more money for different things to be added to the package and got ripped off on all of them.
      Still today my drone sits unopened and unusable... it's money I wish I had back.

      SF bay area pickup. free drone. box opened, but never used.

    10. Orlando Zuleta on January 19, 2016

      I feel cheated with this drone.
      You can not fly and crashes to the second , is poorly designed and does not have stability.

      Please do not let these people back to design a crowdfunding project as dirty and ill leave this method to promote emerging ideas.

      You guys can be lucky for being able to sell that drone. I did not even received anything...:( wanted to buy the drone for my dad and now his money is down the drain. I would not be angry if the communication coming from Airdroids would have been accurate and honest. I had hope when I received their very last mail back in Mai...

      Please check your drone carefully before trying to use it! In mine one screw was completelely missing and I didn´t noticed it in the first place. It was one of the two screws which should hold the plastic part with rotor fixing it strongly to the tail. So, after doing all calibration settings and doing the proper setting to have it ready to fly I tried to fly it and the rotor simply peel of on one side of the tail and the propellers hit hard to other parts of the drone. You can easily imagine what were next consequences.
      I am able to accept if the delivered pocket dron is a bit low cost and needs a lot of fixing to have it "ready to fly", you have allways such a risk with Kickstarter, but I cannot accept if an important part of the dron itself is missing which causing a health risk to me and it is causing of self-destruction of the device itself. Since the product you have delivered to me is not working, please send me a replacement unit.

      I sent my POS pocket drone back immediately after receiving and realizing that it was pure junk. I argued with amazon about it. They would not refund my money. I argued with my credit card and they would not refund it even though i SENT BACK everything to an address in Las Vegas as per instructions in the crappy manual. I WILL NEVER BACK ANOTHER KICKSTARTER PROJECT AGAIN, SO HELP ME GOD!!!!!! May God Bless and Help the Air Droid folks in the way that they need to be helped and call them to repentance.

      I guess I was one of the "lucky" ones who actually got their drone, but only had time to open it up for the first time this weekend. What a colossal piece of garbage. As others have noted, the legs are literally toothpick sized and actually seem flimsier than a toothpick due to the weak plastic material. Charged the battery, hooked everything up, the receiver didn't control/affect the drone in any way, so it's back in the box - probably never to be opened again. Epic fail.

      If they had designed a good product, which has been worked, they could have raised more money from banks and finish their production batch. So, they would have been able to refund their credit with the sell of other pocket drones to direct customers.

      Instead, they have a very bad quality product nobody wants. In this situation, there is no way to continue an economical activity. They can not sell anything, they can not earn money, they can not raise money from banks or investors. Evrything stops.

      @ to all backers who didn't received anything from airdroid

      Because Airdroid is in bankrupt and because you will never receive anything, you may get a refund from your credit card company, they have insurances for that.

      Anyway, because the pocketdrone is so badly designed, it can't fly safely and is unsuable for most of backers. Personnaly, I have kept it for spare parts.

      Carlos on May 21, 2015

      I am in the same situation as Sander and Mike. AirDroids has my shipping address since mid-August and I have not received absolutely nothing, not drone, not extra battery and spare propellers I bought almost a year ago. So now what? For me this will not end this way, and I'll dispute what needed for it.

      This project could be defined as a huge failure from several aspects or approaches, the worst has been the time lost and, above all, the illusion, broken into thousand of pieces.

      No Drone here - They've also had my address and I've had no shipment confirmation or reward. Leaves me in a somewhat interesting limbo.

      According to Kickstarter I'm entitled to a refund, but it'll only come from Airdroids. Doesn't leave me a lot of hope.

      Hi Sander,

      I have submitted your new address information and you will receive a email containing tracking information once your order ships. We have begun production and anticipate beginning to fulfill our backlog of orders towards mid November. Thank you for your patience through the delays and support of the Pocket Drone.

      Hi, is 3D Robotics same company as air droids? I'm asking because in a 3dr video they show pocket drone briefly.

    50. Luke Tipple on May 21, 2015

      Just an FYI to all the backers who (like me) bought extra parts through their store that didn't arrive. I successfully received a charge back credit from my credit card company (AMEX). You'll need to call and get permission for an old charge but the letter they just sent should be enough evidence.
