About

             

We think about making Onago drone system because we try to find a better way to film action sports, in a DIY and multi angle filming way. There are several shooting methods but none of them can do the multi angle film. Onago solves this problem and make the video gorgeous. A vertical position shooting or oversight shooting, this is not a thing for Onago. The technology we applied in Onago changed everything. It makes every action and movement real, clear, visual and artistic. Meanwhile Onago combines action camera, flight and pilots, making filming easier and more economic.

Our initial idea is to develop a filming device or system that follows and films you wherever you go and whatever you do. The point is you can finish this filming by yourself! You don’t need to hire a cameraman or a pilot. The only thing you need to do is focus on your own movement. With the assist of advanced technology and Artificial Intelligence, Onago could operate cool without the pilot and cameraman who is a must in traditional aerial filming. There's no need for you to struggle with the winds in the air or long time filming headache or being bothered with the cost to hire someone. What do you need then?-One Onago drone!

With easy controlling system, DIY multi angles filming is not  a dream anymore. How could I control the drone, then? Traditional remote control or app based control that's your option. Switch over? That's OK. Remote control makes it like a game playing when you fly the drone while the app enable you to send orders to Onago directly on the E-map. 

One touch to take off, *arrive and *return. 

A slight tapping on smartphone and your drone will arrive at wherever you want to go. The range extender maximize the control range to 3281ft(1000m), that’s why many on-line retailers expecting to deliver packages by drones in the years to come.Recorders in the drone will remember the Gps coordinates when it's flying. In that case the drone could return to its taking off position by tracking its previous trajectories. (One touch to arrive and return is two of our stretch goals)

Follow-me system enable you to capture every gorgeous footage. 

Onago drone will follow you and film you everywhere once the wireless connection between the drone and your smart device is being set. Sensors on your drone will detect the signal sent from your smartphone. This time, the algorithm works, which calculates and makes your drone following you and filming you autonomously at a certain angle and keeping a certain distance. All you need to do is focus on your movement .

Perfect gimbal, stable lens, and locked frames.

Installed with a well-qualified gimbal, camera lens stay stable when camera shoots. Turning, rising and descending? Playback the finished video, the perfect video quality and stable frame will never disappoint you. Who’s going to be the next Hollywood film star? You will be the one.

Fashionable flying camera for everyone 

Onago drone camera is for outdoor sports lovers, movie makers and everyone who's creative and likes to shoot and share their own video and lifestyle.Users could take Onago drone nearly anywhere to capture life as it happens.

Precise gimbal. Onago drone may fly in different gestures in the sky while the precise gimbal will adjust the camera's position quickly and stably to capture a good perfect frame from your lens. 

Safety: Automatically detecting and obstacle avoidance. The radar on the drone will detect the obstacle and avoid the crash. 

When the battery runs out, your Onago drone will return to its base. Onago drone could always find its way back home.

Onago drone is not a device that created by the magic lamp or ring. We orchestrated the technology and the human intelligence to make Onago possible. Our UI designer make App simple to read and easy to operate. So does the remote controller. 

Onago is an international team; we have technicians all over the world. Designers and engineers from American, Indian, China, Japanese work together to make Onago a high-tech drone that sync good drone design and easy going aeronautic software. Our engineer gives Onago a strong body, stable operating motor and synthetic carbon fiber to ensure its long time and safe working in the air. 

Our software engineers create a simple practical control interface for you. On the E map, within the signal range, the drone would go to the everywhere your tips ending. Onago is a drone that combines the filming technique, aerodynamics and wireless communication technology. It's neither a drone nor a camera, it's both. These technologies make Onago an intelligent moving camera platform. Its 4 propellers design merged with precise gimbal enable Ongao fly in the sky swift and stable. No matter forward or turn, video frame always stays clear and stable. It operates cool just like you do.

We really want to invite more general people to participate this program. Many hands make light work and many heads comes up with brilliant ideas. Moreover, we need more feedbacks and suggestions from you to make Onago functional awesome and affordable. But the industrial production is different which requires funds that we are hard to secure without your help. Considering the Molds, minimum orders, 80K US dollars we believe is the smallest budget necessary to make Onago a reality, and starting at affordable price. But that's not all. We put this project on the Kickstarter because it's the best and direct way to communicate with the users of our products.Thanks in advance for your support.

Draw your flight path on your smart phone $250K

Preset your flight route is dead simple. Switch to the flight route presetting mode, you are able to tell the drone where and how fast to go. Tip the screen and our Onago drone will do the rest. What you see is what you get. If you can draw,you can fly.

video object tracking $500K

Video tracking system works well when the GPS signal is not good. It helps Onago drone autonomously follow you in the right filming position. With the help of this, these best pictures can be captured.

Intelligent obstacle avoidance system $1M

Our Onago drone will analysis the position and the volume of the obstacle and alternate its flying path to avoid the obstacle. If it's possible, your Onago drone will fly over the obstacle which's more advanced than the avoidance of hovering. Having reached 1M dollars, we will develop an advanced algorithm and install a totally new radar system for Onago drone.

Risks and challenges

Although we are a young team but every member here have shared their ideas, spent time for their dreams and sweat to complete this complex hardware and software drone system.

We know our technology works and worked to minimize the risks, but there’s always something that’s out of our hands.

Although we have anticipated potential problem in advance, there’s always unexpected situation, minor alternation have to be performed. This might cause slight delay in lead time.

We cooperated with trusted components suppliers and we are pretty confident in their manufacturing but they often need to order the raw materials to manufacture their components months in advance, as a brand new product, it is difficult for us to estimate initial volumes and provide an accurate forecast to our suppliers.

Our software has been strictly tested in our lab and in practice but users have different usage patterns. Undoubtedly we will encounter these real-life issues. We have planned to arrange a second time adjustment according to more feedbacks and will add some workable improvement to offer a better user experience.
