About

Introducing the YOYOdrone, the first yoyo that really flies!

I had an idea to add propellers to the yoyo to see if it would fly.  After ten failed attempts the idea started to fly.  After five more design changes, it flies REALLY WELL!

Propellers (like screws, bolts and nuts) can be angled in two directions.  I experimented with both to determine which I would produce.  As it turns out, both are super-fun to throw!  They fly differently and are thrown differently.  What else could I do but deliver both of them to my backers???!!!  At the $25 level, backers will receive one of each.  Just remember: "White moves right, black moves left".

I am ready to move towards sharing this incredible toy with the world.  The largest expense with producing an item like this at scale is the cost to make the production mold (about $28,000).  Please back this project to help fund the production mold and the initial production run.

The world is ready for more fun.  The YOYOdrone can deliver fun to the world!

Risks and challenges

I have chosen a funding level that will enable me to deliver all rewards to the backers. I have met with, obtained pricing information, and toured the manufacturing plant of the supplier who will produce and assemble the YOYOdrone. The manufacturer is local (Made in the USA), which helps sustain local jobs and reduces risks related to overseas manufacturing (ie. west coast port shutdown).

We have clear line of sight to the sourcing of all components of the YOYOdrone.
