Hello Fleyers,

Almost a week into the campaign and we passed some great milestones today: 250+ backers (now 259), 150+ Fleye rewards, and passed the 2/3 of funding! This means that we are now 75 Fleye away from being funded, with 36 days to go!

Thank you ALL for contributing, sharing, and sending us your positive comments and ideas, we really appreciate your enthusiasm for the project! 

Goodbye London

So, we are now back from Techcrunch Disrupt where we showed Fleye in the Hardware Alley. The event was phenomenal and allowed us to talk to a lot of potential partners, investors, and of course to the press, securing top-tier coverage by media such as CNBC, or being photographed in flight by Bloomberg

There was also a Hardware Lunch organized on the Monday and it was nice to discuss with other hardware startups, exchange insight on the Kickstarter experience, the production challenges, etc. 

Next stop: Las Vegas

Next key event for us will be the CES in Las Vegas, January 6-9th. We'll have a booth with a Fleye area where we'll do live demos of the various autonomous modes of Fleye. Our focus for the next weeks, beyond supporting this campaign, will be on fine tuning the hardware and software to perform great demos! You'll be the first to discover them, so expect some great videos posted in the coming two weeks!

That's it for this short update. As always, don't hesitate to ask questions in the comments or directly via email to hello@gofleye.com

Until next time, 

Laurent & Dimitri
