Introducing MyDrone

 MyDrone is the exotic car of quadcopters and will leave you with that experience from it's amazing functionality all the way to it's stunning design. It’s not stopped by ANY weather except tornadoes, hail and lightning; no quadcopter is going to do well in that. 

Your best new action buddy, MyDrone, just in case you don't have access to a professional aerial film crew to take a video of your black diamond runs. MyDrone is your personal training assistant, allowing you to review what you’re doing right, and where you need to improve. With MyDrone you can capture new perspectives that you never thought possible. MyDrone is your new set of Nikes, they're all going to want one, except MyDrone will actually do something for you.

Why Us 

Here at MyDrone we want to empower our users. We live in an incredible time in human evolution in which we are able to capture unbelievable amounts of beautiful and amazing moments in our lives, but we have been restricted to the perspective of mounting or even worse holding the device we are capturing our precious moments with. When we hold the device there is a seperation between us and what we are experiencing, this leaves us not fully present to what is going on. Right there in that moment we are interacting with an image of what has happened, but not what is happening. We want you to have the oportunity to be present in the moment with whatever it is that you want to capture. WE WANT TO SET YOU FREE! That is what is so incredible about this product, hands-free and automatically you are capturing your childs first time riding a bike, playing soccer, or the first time you stood up on a surf board or that unbeliveble trick you just pulled off, whatever you want to use MyDrone to capture, we want to grant you access to being one with your experience.

You backing MyDrone allows us to take it to the next level. We have a great product that our team of engineers, software developers, and designers have produced after conducting over nine years of independent research and development along with over 10,000 flight tests to ensure safety and reliability. We now have a rugged product. We have the molds. We have the parts. We are almost ready for mass production. We need to drive down the cost of manufacturing with a large batch of orders. With yourhelp our dream will become your reality. We will be able to bring MyDrone to the world. All of our backers will be the first owners of MyDrone, PERIOD! there is no one else that will receive this before you.

What set's us apart!
So let's break this down! We are focusing on what is truly unique about MyDrone, our auto-follow feature, which is currently unmatched in the industry. We have a sport watch control module and a separate follow module which allows the drone to follow you or follow something else while you control it: like putting the follow module on your pet and having MyDrone follow old Fido. You don't have to worry about having any remote control piloting skills, the drone operates autonomously and captures your every move smoothly and proficiently with the use of the follow module. What we also provide is a free phone app that allows you full control of all the feature of the drone and it is also remote control ready, this allows MyDrone to be a truly flexible platform for anyone.

MyDrone Today:
 
After developing many prototypes and conducting countless test flights, we are excited to share MyDrone with the world! We have come a long way from an idea to a fully functional drone which can be flown by anyone. In order to begin production of MyDrone so it is available at a local retailer near you, we need your help and support to offset the manufacturing and distribution costs. As a special thank you, Kickstarter backers will get an additional discount for helping us reach our goal.

Sports Watch:

Attach the sports Watch on your wrist along with the follow module on your arm or helmet, turn it on, then press “take off” and you are ready to go, now you can concentrate on your best performance and let My Drone do the rest. My Drone will act as your personal camera man. it is auto-follow, so it follows you everywhere, as long as you have the module on.  

Anytime you want to, you can select manual directional control of the drone using the navigation button on the sport watch, it’s Just like the arrows keys on your keyboard . Height is another feature that you can control anytime without interrupting current flight mode. 

One-button Take-off / Land/ Go-Home. Status Display/ One-key Operation/ 400m Communication Range/ IP67 Rating Water-and-Dust Resistance

 Follow Module is easy to carry and also able to mount on various equipment, such as bikes, rowing boats and people(duh..lol). 

Compatible with The Sports Watch or Remote Controller to support Drone to realize Follow Modes. 

Built-in GPS/Barometer/3-Axis Gyro/3-Axis Accelerometer/3-Axis Compass/High-Precision/50 Updates Per Second IP67 Rating Water-and-Dust Resistant / 400m Communication Range/ 3 Hours of Working Time

"Auto-Follow" Or "Follow Me" Flight Modes: 

My Drone has been uniquely designed with seven auto follow flight modes including simple follow, hover and aim, shadow follow, follow path, orbit, selfie and freeze that you can easily control from the sports watch at anytime .

1. SIMPLE FOLLOW:

MyDrone will auto follow the target with a fixed distance and altitdue even through some of the most extreme elevation changes. Here’s an example, you can set it to keep a 15 foot distance at 30 feet high to the east from your starting position and when you change your direction, MyDrone will stay at the same relative spatial position from you. We suggest this for any sport with open area that you want a cinematic video of. 


2. ORBIT:

Drone will fly in a present speed and radius surrounding the target. This setting is great for impressive panoramic shots of low speed or static activities .

3. HOVER AND AIM: 

Drone will hover, but it's nose and camera will rotate with the target. This mode works magic for tight places such as indoor skateparks, narrow forest trails and also works great for bungee jumping and base jumping where clearance from equipment is important.

4. FOLLOW-SHADOW: 

Drone will keep in one direction against the target with it's camera focusing on the target all the time.

5. FOLLOW-TRACK:  

 Drone will fly against the target at the same speed and direction.

6. SELFIE: 

 Drone will shoot transitional footage from a small scene to a large scene and from large scene to small scene. With the click of a button you can now capture epic shots of you, without a stick in your shot, allowing you to really showcase the scenery that surrounds you.

7. FOLLOW-LINE:
 

Drone will fly along the predetermined route with it's camera focused on the target, "you!". 

We are constantly innovating, so there are more updates to come. One of the inovations we are in the process of finalizing is Freeze Mode: This is the mode that you want to use as a face down shot from above you. MyDrone will hoover at any height that you set from the sport watch, simply walk it over to where you want the shot, press the button and it will freeze it's position with the camera face down.

MyDrone will keep on flying in any weather, while others drones are parked somewhere around your house collecting dust. 

  

In The Moment Be truly present and hands free as My Drone captures you fascinating moments. No matter the action or the thrill, your personal flying cameraman is right there with you! Enjoy, capture and share your epic stories with friends and family everywhere. 

 3-Axis Auto-Follow Gimbal: 

We didn't just slap an aftermarket camera gimbal on our baby, we developed our own! This is made possible from 3 years of independent R & D experience. The gimbal is capable of ±0.02 degree precision stabilization and 2000 times correction per second, making high-speed aerial photography smooth and stable. In follow mode, the camera gimbal and the drone simultaneously work together to keep you center frame at all times. 

Included Camera:

We wanted you to be able to get to capturing amazing video right out of the box so we included a 4K HD video camera, but you can always attach your own GoPro.  

Camera Specs: 720p@120FPS - 1080p@60/30FPS - 1440p@30FPS - 2.5K@30FPS - 4K@24FPS

Risks and challenges

With any ambitious technological project there are risks involve when scaling up. We have taken the time to sort out and minimize all the risks in this project, and no matter the planning there are somethings that are out of our hands:

— Despite having success in small batch manufacturing tests and 9 years of research, development and strategic planning, there is always the potential for unexpected alterations that may arise entering into the industrial manufacturing stage. This could lead to slight delays in lead time.

— We order components from suppliers that we trust, but things can happen on their premises that we can’t anticipate or control. This could lead to slight delays in lead time.

This being said, these are risks that any product faces throughout the development and manufacturing stage. We are confident that any challenge that we face will not significantly impact our patrons....YOU!
