DreamQii PlexiDroneDreamQii’s PlexiDrone will be hitting the market in Spring 2015 and has us excitedly waiting in anticipation of all it has to offer. Ready to go from the box, this small, user friendly drone can be operated by the PlexiGCS App for iOS, Android, and Windows. This drone snaps together in under a minute and no tools are required. The PlexiDrone works with your favorite camera and mobile device and offers options available for additional cost to really make your shots breathtaking!

The PlexiDrone makes capturing amazing aerial videos and pictures easier than before. GPS Follow Me and real-time camera control right from your smart-phone or mobile device gives this drone a competitive edge over others. PlexiGCS allows you to control multiple PlexiDrones at one time, giving you the ability to capture videos from all angles. The GPS Follow Me on the PlexiGCS app is as easy as pressing “Follow Me”; the drone will then follow a moving object, or stay focused on a single point of interest. The moving target would need a mobile device, iOS, Android or Windows smartphone running the app and have their GPS enabled. PlexiGCS allows for live video feed from any WiFi or IP camera, GPS Waypoint planning and navigation, simplified direction control, real-time telemetry display, single touch GPS Follow Me, control of camera view & rotation, real-time voice and buzzer alerts, sharing of photos while you fly, and more. Of course, control via a standard 2.4 GHz Radio Controller is also available if desired.

DreamQii added on a feature that will save you from the work of cropping your shots in post production by making the landing gear retractable. This provides a 360° field of view with no propellers or landing gear in the way, making shots far more professional. Included ultrasonic sensing allows the PlexiDrone to detect obstacles in its path with a sensing distance of up to 32 feet away. The PlexiDrone’s Obstacle Avoidance feature allows you to decide if you want the drone to stop completely or find another path entirely if it experiences an obstacle. A bottom facing ultrasonic sensor on the unit allows for altitude hold and automatic extension of landing gear to protect your camera if the drone comes too close to the ground. Two optical sensors, one front-facing and the other bottom-facing, increase stability in indoor flight even without GPS availability.

The current cost of the PlexiDrone Starter kit is $699. This is a pre-order price that is below what the expected consumer price will be once the drone is available in retail stores. Included in this price is a PlexiDrone, PlexiHub, 3S 6250 mAh LiPoly battery and battery charger. You can upgrade the PlexiDrone from a Quad-Copter to an Octo-Copter by purchasing the Octo Upgrade PlexiArm kit for an additional $199. The Octo-Copter upgrade allows for better stability and heavier payload capacity. With the original Quad-Copter propeller system, the PlexiDrone can carry a maximum 1000 gram (2 pound) payload. The Octo-Copter upgrade increases the maximum to 1500 grams (3.1 pounds), though it should be noted that the upgrade does reduce flight time somewhat.

With the standard Quad-Copter arms and propellers the PlexiDrone has a 29 minute hover or 25 minute mixed flight time. With the optional Octo-Copter upgrade the flight times reduce to 24 minutes for hover only and 20 minutes for mixed. Both sets of the flight times are great for a consumer friendly flying drone. At 15 x 15 x 5 inches, and 2.2 pounds Quad-Copter and 3 pounds Octo-Copter, the PlexiDrone is a light weight, consumer friendly, high quality drone that has us extremely impressed. We are pleased to put the DreamQii PlexiDrone on our list of iReviews 2015 best drones.

      DreamQii and Klever have clearly forgotten all about this interview. Do not buy a PlexiDrone or anything from DreamQii! The product simply doesn’t exist and it’s doubtful if it ever will! No one has seen it. They haven’t delivered the PlexiDrone to any customers and have not delivered the BublCam, or the Sony video cameras either. It’s all just a dream idea right now (or a nightmare for some customers!). If you visit their Indiegogo campaign page, their Facebook page or other “PlexiDrone” customer pages you will quickly read about the frustration many customers are experiencing. If this is how DreamQii treats their customers who have supported and backed them before they have even produced a product, imagine how bad their customer service will be if DreamQii ever does deliver their product!!

        I am not sure if this is the first time you have invested in a crowdfunding campaign or are just intentionally doing this to destroy the reputation of the company. They are very much out there and not trying to spam anyone. Production delays are a very common thing and happens to any company. If production delays happen to a company that is just starting off, it is nothing new. DreamQii as a company has been focusing on more important aspects right now which include perfecting the PlexiDrone. They already revamped the initial model to look and perform much better. Even though they have been slow in getting back to their customers, they have still been getting back. Many customers have already got back refunds. There are lots of new videos being posted showing the progress of the company and the drone. A company that is trying to spam their backers would not be posting videos and giving refunds or interacting with customers on their pages such as YouTube and Facebook.

      I don’t know man. I believe plexidrone is going to be released 🙂 Saw some footage this few days of Plexidrone flying on their youtube channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycGujzu2mnM Hard to imagine them giving up on a working platform. It’s definitely not easy for a startup company competing with large company like DJI, delays happen.

        He got his money back. Not because he used a lawyer, but because he went through the system and asked for one. DreamQii isn’t trying to scam anyone, they have just been going through production delays. Would you want to have a drone that is not well built or rather have one that performs excellent. Patience is what people need.

          Most people asking for a refund are not receiving any. Or a heavily discounted one at best. I didn’t receive any response or feedback to my concerns. I understand patience, and I understand crowd funding campaigns don’t always go according to plan. However, Its been more than 2 years now, still no Plexi Drone. I’m starting to lean towards the idea that I wont ever see the Plexi Drone.

          @johnSmith… they offered 50% refund and now nothing. 2 years later why haven’t they produced something? Competition has already come out with everything the Plexidrone was supposed to have 2 years ago. PLUS a camera. Have you seen what they have flying around in their videos? It looks like a pterodactyl and about as big. So what if they produce something now they are way behind what you can already buy from DJI. WITH a camera.

    I ordered this scam product year(s)??? ago….. Date keeps slipping…they don’t even talk about ship dates anymore…just continually revamping and extending their marketing scam to get more poor idiots like me to send them money for a product that is the real Phantom Drone of the industry….

    It’s really sad….don’t believe me…google it yourself and read the forums. Indiegogo is at this point…and contributor to the problem.

        Wrong,you must work for them. It has been over 2 years and they have not come up with anything. I want what I paid for when they said it would be done. Revamped? All companies revamp theirs and they sell as new models

          Correct. Two years is a long time to wait. I can understand delays for a startup but no company takes over 2 years to only come up with foolish excuses like revamping the product!

    This is turning out to be a big scam and the 2 million in contributions will soon disappear just like the web site will as well. I blame indiegogo as the starters of this whole thing. Broken promises and bull delivering dates. Don’t send a penny to this site or get yourself scammed like we did. The web page is perfect reflection of what’s behind this company if you want to call it that. Buy a DJI drone and save your cash.

      Clearly you havent followed anything from Plexidrone’s youtube channel or facebook page. DreamQii keeps posting review, how to, and other videos. People who actually buy the plexidrone get updates. They even have a support page running and looks like their website looks different… it looks like you people got paid to troll all over this page.

        Still 2 years is a long time to wait. Companies deliver products while continuing to make their product better not promising clients a better product and never delivering anything!

    I got my money back last year, just after March. To be fair, their fb page is still there, they keep posting stuff, and it seems they have a production model and backers will be choosing options soon. There is a video of it flying. Idk, I gave up last year. They were pretty-well full of s when I dealt with them. I’ll check it out if it ever makes the shelves.

      I kept my preorder for the Plexidrone. I agree with Darren, it has been a long time but their fb page is there and their support site is open too (support.dreamqii.com) although their main site is not. I think if they did ran away there would be already thousands of articles about it. It is highly likely they’re taking time in getting the product ready, hopefully that will happen soon

        There wouldn’t necessarily be thousands of articles if they ran away. They are a startup company nothing big to deserve wall street recognition. I do not believe they will ever deliver anything, 2 years of production delay is not normal.

    The whole Plexidrone and DreamQii situation has been quite unfortunate. We as backers and customers wanted DreamQii to put out a successful product that gives all of the features they promised. However they have been in their production phase for a while now. In all fairness to them, they did completely revamp their older model in order to make the new model look and allegedly perform better.
    They have started getting more active on social media now and are starting to show some promising videos on both their YouTube and Facebook pages.
