Team DreamQii  announced today the IndieGoGo launch of their PlexiDrone, an ultra-portable, and intelligent, flying camera robot.


Here are a few of PlexiDrone’s features:
  • ultrasonic sensors for obstacle avoidance and safety
  • snap together assembly, with no tools, in less than 45seconds
  • retractable landing gear, so you will never see them in the corners of your shots
  • swarming technology, to control multiple drones simultaneously by smartphone/tablet
  • an aerodynamic backpack to carry aerial all your gear


You  could make a pledge directly through their website. There are only a limited number of PlexiDrone packages selling for the low early-bird price.

    Anyone hear about the Plexidrone, I was thinking of buying it a long time ago. But Im not sure how to do it. Their indiegogo campaign is ended and the link Samuel posted doesnt work. Does anyone know where I could see a review or something?

    Wonder if DreamQii is still around (prob not). Plexidrone just seemed too versatile to be real. Time has proven i was correct.

    This article is pretty old. DreamQii has made many new modifications to their Plexidrone ever since and are looking great. Even though there has been a delay with the production process, its looking promising. The best way to keep up to date with the progress is by following video updates on their YouTube page.
