Extreme Fliers’ Micro Drone 3.0 Captures $1.4M on Indiegogo; UK Tech Startup Extends Campaign

Last month, UK-technology company Extreme Fliers launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to raise $75,000 for its new product, the Micro Drone 3.0. The device was built to be nothing like any other drone by combining expandable modular technology, sensor-assisted flying and a micro-gimbal for live streaming video. It is considered the first fully customizable personal drone.

“The step up in technology and features we have packed into Micro Drone 3.0 offers users a taste of things you would find in a high end device. We want Micro Drone 3.0 to be usable by anyone, whether first timers or an adaptable drone for enthusiasts. We’re truly excited to share these innovations with the Indiegogo community.”

Now, thirty days later, the campaign has not only achieved its initial goal, but has also raised over $1 million dollars. Extreme Fliers decided to extend the project for another 30 days.

“As some of you may have noticed, our Indiegogo Campaign has been extended by 30 days! This is an amazing opportunity that Indiegogo has offered to us as we did not use our full duration as allowed by them and will be of benefit of all of the current backers.

 

“Just to note , with the extension of the campaign, it WILL NOT AFFECT SHIPPING DATES as we have promised. Over the course of the coming days/weeks, we will be sending our updates of the manufacturing process and share photos of Vernon in the factor working on mold production, 3D printing frames, etc… Stay tuned!

 

Vernon Kerswell“Further, we were a bit behind on releasing this update as Vernon was in flight to Hong Kong to begin the manufacturing process. For your Micro Drone 3.0, as we initially planned. The extension of 30 days is all things equal, as we are moving forward as initially planned.

 

“Additionally, the first backers to the campaign will receive their drone in the order that they have pledged. Secondly, those who pledge after July 16, will receive their drone one month after the first round of backers.”

The campaign is set to close in mid-August.
