Kickstarter and DIY Drones was Good For Me
The good news is that Hobby UAV can start selling Airplanes now. Hurray!
I was so emotionally and physically spent after a solid month of putting myself out there. When the Techpod went Successful on Kickstarter I was just exhausted and the first thing I had to do was take a nap. Thirty days is so much longer when putting your future on the line.
It was really exciting to see the community from DIY Drones showing me so much support. I designed this airplane not just from my own experiences, but from the experiences and cravings of a whole community. Manufacturers just didn’t want to put any money into making a design that makes sense for the true hobbyist and enthusiasts. Thank you so much for all your support.
Up Next …
The molds are going to be tooled starting in about another week (when the funds will be available)and 500 techpods are on their way 100 days after that. I want to promise everyone who supported the Techpod that I can ship them by Christmas, but it is still too early to know if I can get all those airplanes here and shipped out in time for the holidays.
Expect Your Techpod in January 2013.
Going on the Road
There is a variety of events taking place in the hobby airplane modelling world. Some of these events I plan to attend and let people see the Techpod for themselves. I am not sure which events yets, but check back here and we should be posting the agenda soon.
Pre Order Sales are Available in the USA
Now that the ball is rolling, there is a limitted supply of Techpod UAVs available for pre order purchase here.
