This project was successfully funded on March 9, 2014, raising $929,212 of an original goal of $35,000. Billed as the "GoPro of Drones," the Pocket Drone can fly approximately a mile out using the radio controller and telemetry at speed up to 40 MPH. It was also the first multicopter powerful enough to carry a high-quality action camera and folds up smaller than a 7-inch tablet. It features a 20-minute flight time with the onboard camera, an advanced autopilot and "follow me" mode, and it's all upgradeable, expandable and hackable.
