Longest flying portable drone that can lift 8 pounds!

Hello drone lovers!

We are excited to be so close to our goal on KickStarter with another 3 weeks left on the campaign. 

In the meantime a test we did last week proved that Easy Drone XL Pro could actually lift and fly with 8 pounds of weight for quite a few minutes (without bursting into flames). This is with a hand-tightened frame and it's default battery and props. 

We are still sticking to our 3 pound recommendation for the camera weight though since we want to give you more than 100% overhead to fight winds and be more agile. 

Take a look at a recent demo we did at InterDrone in Las Vegas below:

That's a nice simple design, and congrats on fullfilling past Kickstarter campaigns.

I do think your claims are a bit of a stretch though.  I have drones that are "portable" and can carry more than 8lbs and/or fly longer than 45 minutes.  You might want to qualify that as "backpack-able".

Hi Rob - thanks!

You're right LOL :) Backpack-able would be the right word for it. 

BTW - thanks for all your support on the forums.

I do not mean to in any way be rude but is this just off the shelf hardware on carbon booms? Congrats on your kick starter, looks like its going strong!

@The Sun - Hi there, sorry for a delayed answer. You are correct about the aluminum frame parts. They are modified off-the-shelf connectors and have been a great fit for the overall design. They are also pretty expensive and take time to modify so we are going to start making our own parts hopefully after this KickStarter campaign is successful. 

Thanks for the support!
