Zano: Upgrades played major role in failure drone project




zano attributes a large portion of the failure of his drone-project on Kickstarter to upgrades that are added to the basic model for the development. The company recommends backers who want to go down to the creditors meeting their money back.

Zano offers his apologies and gives insight into the cost of the failed project. The pie chart must provide clarity on where the money from Kickstarter backers has gone. The company hopes to meet this obligation where the Kickstarter Zano Tuesday on former had to communicate openly and transparently about what happened with the project.

Zano further explains that it was wrong to a great extent on the upgrades of the drone. “During the Kickstarter campaign upgrades were proposed and implemented within the design,” the company writes, “Who made upgrades to technical challenges to an already complex project.” Among other things, would increase the weight of the production models on 70 gram, where the prototypes were 55 grams. The effect on flight time would be offset with lighter plastic and larger propellers.

Furthermore, the project would suffer had calibration problems in mass production and delays because there had to be developed a test facility. Last week, in a brief statement disclosed that project for the development of a small autonomous intelligent drone was no longer feasible. It was a financially very successful project that converted 3.35 million shrugged.

People who Zano via Kickstarter supported now want to see their money back, but they can forget, the company said in an e-mail to victims, which has been passed Tweakers. “Kickstarter backers do not have the status of a creditor,” says curator Gary Stones. He says that while victims therefore will not be allowed on the creditors’ meeting to be held on 4 December. “Save your time and money to get here,” said the curator in the email.
