EN: Learn to master acrobatic and 3D flying by watching and feeling artistic manoeuvers. See the moves on the screen and feel how the control sticks are moving simultaneously. StickMover guides you in learning the right moves intuitively.

StickMover looks just like a regular remote control. Instead of controlling a model aircraft, it leads you through any given manoeuver step by step. As you watch the flight on your screen, the StickMover goes through all the motions, letting your fingers feel exactly what to do in any given moment. By watching, feeling and repeating you learn the right moves intuitively.

DE: Lerne komplexe Flugfiguren durch Zuschauen und Nachfühlen. Der StickMover zeigt Dir auf intuitive Weise, was du zu tun hast. AVIskills sind unsere Trainingseinheiten – für jeden Flug eine. Wir eröffnen Dir die ganze Welt des Kunst- und 3D-Flugs. Der StickMover sieht aus wie eine normale Fernbedienung. Doch anstatt ein Fluggerät zu steuern, führt es dich schrittweise durch eine Figur. Während du den Flug auf dem Bildschirm anschaust, spüren deine Finger durch den StickMover, was sie zu tun haben. Durch Zuschauen, Fühlen und Wiederholen lernst du intuitiv die richtigen Moves.

EN: If you like to see results soon, make progress with your flying skills and master even complicated 3D manoeuvers– give it a try with the StickMover.

StickMover starts with easy acrobatic figures like a lopping and will guide you to even more complex 3D figures. So StickMover can help beginners end even pros.

StickMover works for helicopters, aeroplanes and multicopters.

Are you ready for take-off with us? We definitely are!

DE: Wenn du schnell Fortschritte im Modellflug machen willst und auch komplizierte Figuren fliegen willst, ist der StickMover die richtige Wahl für dich. Der StickMover fängt beim einfachen Kunstflug an und hört beim harten 3D Flug auf. Somit untersetzt der StickMover alle Piloten, vom Anfänger bis hin zum Profi. Und das für Helikopter, Flächemodelle und Multicopter.

Bist du bereit? Wir sind es au jeden Fall.

  

 

EN: As engineers and passionate techies we wanted to combine usability, performance and robustness in the StickMover. After a lot of efforts we are very happy to present the results to you.In terms of design and usability we tried to keep it as simple as possible, maintaining versatility to a high degree. All key elements like the processing unit and the hardware design are 100 % developed by ourselves. In other parts like the servo motors we rely only on state-of-the-art products manufactured by leading companies.

DE: Als Ingenieure und technikbegeisterte wollen wir Benutzerfreundlichkeit, Leistung und Robustheit im StickMover vereinen. Nach viel Arbeit und Anstrengung sind wird sehr glücklich, euch das Ergebnis zu zeigen. Alle Schlüsselelemente, wie die Hardware und der StickMover selbst wurden 100% von uns entworfen und entwickelt. Andere Teilen, wie z.B. die Servos beziehen wir von bekannte Hersteller aus dem Bereich RC-Modellbau.  

 

 

Nico Niewind:

EN: When I first used the prototype of the StickMover I was baffled. But I could feel that this will help a lot of people. It was just feeling right!

DE: Als ich den StickMover das erste Mal ausprobiert habe, war ich baff. Mir war aber sofort klar, dass es damit viele Piloten echt einfacher haben werden, den Einstieg in eine schwierige Figur zu finden. Es hat einfach gepasst!

Eric Weber:

EN: To get the possibilitly to fly 3D manouveres for the "StickMovers" was a new experience. It is a totally new way of practicing, and to know that soon many RC pilots will be able to learn these moves with the StickMover is really nice.

DE: Es war eine ganz neue Erfahrung, 3D-Flugmanöver für den StickMover einzufliegen. Es ist eine total neue Trainingsmöglichkeit und zu wissen, dass viele RC-Piloten damit die Moves erlernen können, fühlt sich richtig gut an.

Robin Trumpp:

EN: The StickMover is the perfect tool to get you jump-started! Try it!

DE: Der StickMover ist perfekt: "Er nimmt dich an die Hand bis Du das Gefühl hast, es selbst fliegen zu können. Einfach genial!

Kleines Kickstarter Tutorial

 

 

 

EN: As we want to open a path for you into the art of acrobatic and 3D flying step by step – or flight by flight – we offer a variety of acrobatic and 3D manoeuvres for the StickMover. We call them AVIskills. Once you are able to perform the basics you can choose between the Looping the Death Spiral or the Hurricane – or just pick whatever move you’ve always wanted to pull off. 

With your StickMover you will get 100 AVIskills. Additional AVIskills will cost between 1,00 and 1,50 Euros.

DE: Wir führen Dich in die Welt des Kunstflugs und des 3D-Flugs ein – Schritt für Schritt, oder vielmehr: Flug für Flug. Dafür haben wir eine Vielzahl von Flugfiguren – sogenannte AVIskills- vorbereitet, die du mit dem StickMover erlernen kannst: die AVIskills. Wenn du die Grundtechniken beherrschst, kannst du zwischen dem Auto-Pushover, der Death Spiral oder dem Hurricane auswählen – oder eben die Figur lernen, die du schon immer draufhaben wolltest. 

Mit dem StickMover erhälst du 100 AVIskills. Weiter AVIskills kann man für eine Preis von 1,00€ bis 1,50 € erwerben.

 

EN: As for the user interface, we tried hard to keep it simple and all focused on what we’re all about: flying, trying, taking off. For example, you can pick any part of a specific manoeuver, say: an inside loop or a hover. Now you can repeat that as often as you like at the speed that suits exactly your current ability. This way you can repeat the move until you master it. You can use StickMover with any Mac or Windows PC.

DE: Unsere Software haben wir bewusst einfach und gut bedienbar gehalten. Ihr sollt Euch auf das Fliegen, Ausprobieren und Abheben konzentrieren. AVIsoft lässt Dich eine Flugfigur aussuchen, zum Beispiel den Inside Loop. Dann kannst du die Figur so oft wiederholen, wie du möchtest – genau in der gewünschten Geschwindigkeit. Du wiederholst die Figur so oft, bis du sie beherrschst. Lade die AVIsoft auf Deinen Mac oder Windows-PC und erfühle mit dem StickMover Deinen ersten Flug.

 

EN: Two long-time buddies had a great idea … isn’t that how many great endeavours started? With StickMover, it’s almost like that. At first, it was Patrick Zajonc who came up with the idea. Patrick, a computer pro and RC-flying-enthusiast for many years, one day once again watched a very skilled pilot flying some daredevil manoeuvers, thinking: I want to be in that place. Patrick tried everything out there. Firstly, he gave it a shot with a book. “Soon I realized, there isn’t much connection between the book and what my fingers do”, he says. The attempt to learn moves watching and imitating a video of a pro pilot failed as well. “You can’t split your attention, you’re either focussing on watching the flight or on the control sticks.” At that time, Patricks little son was eager to learn to write his name. “I watched him holding the pencil and suddenly knew what to do. You’re not going to acquire any advanced skill by watching someone performing it – you’ve got to do it yourself.” From that moment four years ago Patrick started puzzling over his innovation. Soon he realized he would need support and asked his long term friend Ulrich F. Beyle to join in, contributing immense expertise in business, media and design matters. 

DE: Zwei alte Kumpel hatten eine großartige Idee… so fangen viele erfolgreiche Gründungsgeschichten an. Die StickMover-Story geht so ähnlich. Zunächst hatte Patrick Zajonc die zündende Idee. Als Computer-Experte und langjähriger Hobby-Modellflieger schaute er eines Tages mal wieder einem echten Modellflug-Profi zu, wie er waghalsige Figuren flog. Patricks großer Wunsch: So möchte er eines Tages auch fliegen können. Patrick probierte alles aus. Er versuchte es mit einem Buch. “Ich habe bald gemerkt, dass ich die Verbindung zwischen dem Buch und meinen Fingern nicht hinkriege.“ Auch mit einem Video klappte es nicht wirklich. „Du kannst deine Aufmerksamkeit nicht zwischen Auge und Hand aufteilen – die Schwierigkeit ist, beides zusammenzubringen.“ Zu dieser Zeit lernte Patricks kleiner Sohn gerade, seinen Namen zu schreiben. „Ich habe gesehen, wie er den Stift hielt und wusste plötzlich, was zu tun war. Du wirst nie etwas durch Zuschauen lernen – du musst es selbst tun.“ Seit diesem Moment vor vier Jahren fing Patrick an, über seiner Erfindung zu tüfteln. Bald holte er sich Unterstützung dazu und fragte seinen alten Freund Ulrich F. Beyle, ob er mitmachen will. Er wollte und steuert seitdem seine Kompetenz im Bereich Medien, Design und Business bei. Es war ein langer Weg vom ersten Prototyp aus Holz, liebevoll die “Vesperbox” genannt, zum hoch entwickelten High-Tech-Produkt, das der StickMover heute ist. Einige Freunde haben Patrick und Uli dabei unterstützt: ein Programmierer, ein Ingenieur und einige der besten 3D-Piloten und Flugzeug-Designer in Deutschland: Mario und Nico Niewind, die geholfen haben, den StickMover zur Perfektion zu bringen.

 

 

EN: Two buddies with a heart for RC model flying, both engineers from southern Germany: this is the team behind AVIrem, Patrick Zajonc and Ulrich F. Beyle. Patrick is a computer expert, family father and a model aircraft enthusiast for more than 10 years. Ulrich is specialized in media production and is gifted in the areas of project management, design and business. Both were fascinated with technology since they created their first Lego buildings in childhood. For AVIrem to get to life, they asked several friends for their support: a software developer, a mechanical engineer and, finally, some of the best 3D pilots and model aircraft designers in Germany: Marius and Nico Niewind, who helped polishing the StickMover system and bringing it to perfection for it to meet highest professional standards.

DE: Ohne viel Worte, hier die Vorstellung unseres Teams

 

EN: The online-shop goes live in April 2017 where the StickMover will be offered at a suggested retail price of 350 Euros.

DE: Unser Online-Shop geht im Aprio 2017 online. Dort wird der StickMover für 350€ erhältlich sein.

 

 

Risks and challenges

As you can see in our video, we have already built complete functional StickMover prototypes and we have manufacturing partners ready to bring it to serial production. As in any complex hardware project there are certain risks, however.

Scaling Production: The challenge is to scale from a few units to thousands, while maintaining the level of quality and reliability we demand from our products. We have experienced manufacturing partners to help us in this process, and we are confident that we can produce one thousand units on time.

Production Delays: We have built in plenty of margin into our production time table to deliver the StickMover on time, but unpredictable things can happen. We will make every effort to push the StickMover into the world as soon as possible.

Our pledge to you is to maintain transparency via constant updates, and to build the StickMover to the same incredibly high standard we would build it if it was just for ourselves.
