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.
