Drone U is a drone that lets you fly them without any real instruments.
That makes it very easy to control.
But its wings are also made of a carbon composite, making it a lot more expensive to build.
That made it hard to mass produce the device in the US.
Now, though, they’ve launched their Kickstarter campaign to raise $5,000 to build a smaller, cheaper version that can fly without a wing.
The campaign, which has raised over $3,500 of its $5.5 million goal, promises to take drones that fly for more than 30 minutes and make them reusable.
It also aims to provide a cheap, simple way to assemble the device, as well as a way to test it out and build it.
“We’re really excited to be able to get to this point and build a drone with a larger wing than the one we’ve got now, because that’s a huge reduction in cost,” said Michael J. Anderson, the chief operating officer of Flysky, the company that’s making the drone.
“We can scale up our production capacity for a smaller drone, and we can get it into customers faster.”
Anderson says the drone can fly for up to 90 minutes without an instrument, making its flight time a fraction of that of the F-35.
The F-22 Raptor is currently the world’s most expensive combat drone.
