About

Spry: The only waterproof drone that submerges under water, floats like a boat and flies in the air.

Both Spry and Remote Control are Waterproof and Float
Both Spry and Remote Control are Waterproof and Float

The Spry is strong and durable.

The Spry can submerge briefly under water and float back to the surfice, flip on its back and fly like a bird.

Never before have you been able to swim and fly ;)

It's interchangeable battery allows it to fly for 17 minutes and speeds of up to 70 kilometers per hour (43mph).

The Spry was clocked at 43mph with its standard two blade propellers. By installing 3 bladed high angle propellers, you'll be able to go even faster.

The enhanced control also available via the mobile app will allow you to Follow a subject, orbit around a point of interest, or return to the pilot's location even if the pilot has moved from the Spry's take off location.

 Gone are the days where all your friends have to hover over your shoulder to be able to watch the live video feed from your drone. The Spry can transmit its video signal to as many monitors and video goggles as you want.

The Spry's remote control has an integrated 4.3 inch monitor. But you can get a more immersive experience with the Spry's 5.8ghz High Resolution Video Goggles.

We've been working on the Spry's design for two years and every prototype has taught us something new.

Making the remote control waterproof was challenging and we had to test several materials before we came across the right combination.

We want to show you how the Spry is made, so through a series of videos called "Inside Drones Factory" we're giving you full access to a few of the factories that make the components for the Spry. Here's a short exce

We've been working on the Spry for two years and we're almost ready to start manufacturing and assembly. Once we meet our Kickstarter goal, we'll start ordering all the components and start getting ready for assembly.

About the team.

SwellPro USA is formed by a team of two companies, SwellPro and Urban Drones. By combining our expertise in manufacturing and customer support, we are able to give you a better user experience and the best Kickstarter backer support possible. This is our third Kickstarter project together, so we've gotten really good at delivering on time and user support questions. Based on our expertise and what we've learned in the past 4 years, we're extremely confident that we can deliver all Spry drones on time. By merging both teams, we are able to manufacture a drone with abilities that have never been seen before. On top of all this, we are dedicated to giving our backers a five star customer service experience by providing support after delivery from the U.S.A in three different languages.

Risks and challenges

All Kickstarter projects have a certain amount of risk, however the Spry's development is in its latest stage. The injection mold has been completed. The flight controller and firmware are almost finalized. All there is left is to run a successful Kickstarter and secure the funds to order all the materials and start producing the Spry. Our goal is to start delivering your Spry as early as mid November and have all rewards delivered no later than mid December. We do not expect any material delays.
