Up and Go, crowd funder with GoPro style branding.

After seeing a potential GoPro Karma patent yesterday, an Indiegogo that has no shame when copying branding. That to me is a warning flag.

Another folder like Ryan Goldsteins, but they have been around forever so its not all that novel as an idea. The same factory in China must be creating the innards for all of these watch based follow me quads. I strongly suspect they are using http://www.ardupilot.org code without attribution.

The flash sale pre order price of $299 has attracted many. I hope the quad in the video below is an early one a its hover is somewhat erratic.

Meet UP&GO. Simple, Smart and Affordable Aerial Camera. from Jonathan Globerson on Vimeo.

We started out with a goal of creating a quality aerial camera that would work for people’s everyday lives. While of course, we started with an idea in mind, we decided there was no better way to get the perfect camera than to listen to you, and your needs, when it comes to what you’re looking for in an aerial camera.

Crowdfunding has allowed us to further develop our product with your help, and your ideas in mind. Throughout this continued process, we’ll be keeping you updated and asking questions about how you’d like to see it grow in the future, including different add-ons, or different parts of the project. Change is good, and it’s all about you!

It’s an incredible feeling to be able to bring together a community of active UP&GO users, and one of the greatest rewards we can get from our campaign. Your opinion and input is truly what drives this product, making it better all the time, and allowing it to grow for your benefit. UP&GO is a product made for you, by you.

It’s our promise and guarantees to ensure every cent that comes from our campaign will be used to make UP&GO the best it can possibly be. Most of the funds will be used for things like molds, tools, etc. In order to pass the savings onto you, we will be purchasing a CNC machine to cut our own carbon fiber frames, instead of outsourcing. Though all of the electronics included in the camera will be produced by a larger manufacturer to ensure quality, we will be setting up a small production facility to put together the frame and plastic body parts, offer thorough testing of the products and pack them with care before shipping them off to you. Our hope, as well, is to go past our campaign goal to be able to cover a few additional research and development costs, so we can continue to come up with fresh add-on ideas that will bring UP&GO to life even more. Every cent will be used to make sure this is the best aerial camera on the market, and the last one you’ll ever need.

We’ll be adding and updating some of your most frequently asked questions to this section throughout the campaign, so you can keep checking back if you’ve got a question you think others might, as well! In the meantime, feel free to text Kristy, at+1 (628) 888-1378. She’ll help to answer any questions you might have, and can also connect you to one of our team members if she doesn’t have the answer you’re looking for.

You can also connect directly to a team member, you can do so through Indiegogo, or email us at [email protected].

Our team is comprised of seasoned entrepreneurs, product developers, robotic engineers, and supply chain experts with more than 58 years of entrepreneurial and manufacturing experience, so rest assured the product will exceed your expectations.

We have done a decent work, so the risks are minimal. We have finished R&D stage and have a working prototype. We already signed a large manufacturer (Flicker) who committed timely production setup and delivery.

What you are seeing is a prototype, so the final product may be slightly different from what you see but will be definitely supreme quality.

To assure best product quality we chose a large and established factory for UP&GO production. There are a lot of advantages working with a factory but due to low quantities we plan to order, the manufacturer can choose to produce other orders (larger quantities) and move UP&GO production run for one-two months. This can cause delays with product delivery to backers.

We warrant to the original purchaser of the UP&GO Aerial Camera (the “Product”) that at the time of shipment release this product is free from material defect in materials and workmanship.

Once your return is received and inspected by us, your refund will be processed and a credit will be applied to your credit card or PayPal account.
