DIY Backers: Get ready to start building

Over the last few days, we’ve been poring over the final rounds of testing with the DIY kits. Thanks to these results, we are proud to announce that we will be shipping your kits today. This marks a major milestone in our journey. With your help, we have created not only the first autonomous drone, but also the first autonomous flying camera system. And now, it’s time for us to place it in your hands.

Straight from production, we’ve tested the entire finalized system in over twenty flights over the last few days. The cards and electronics have been individually validated with perfectly stable test benches, ensuring they meet our rigorous specifications and are ready for use.

For those of you who backed HEXO+ on Kickstarter at the DIY kit level, get ready for a sweet little package to arrive at your door soon.

The completion and testing of the DIY kits is excellent news for all of us. It’s a validation of the entire HEXO+ system, as it confirms that all of the electronics are on point. It also means that we are right on track with our production schedule for our ready-to-fly models. We’ll continue to keep you updated on our progress. Thanks for joining us on this journey.
