    The aexo transformer kit turns your Inspire 1 within seconds into a laterally protected drone! Attach and detach the aexo frame with our quick release system whenever you want to! Even in the transform process, the propellers are laterally protected, and you can move freely!

    Pledge for the aexo branded design edition in raw aluminum!

    Same...not for prop guards, they should be a disposable item

    Prop and Drone protector are not a disposable item, they are a main part of it. I know too many people, who was injured - not only Enrique Iglesias - also professional pilots - nobody wants to share his bloody picture of course.. The protector or transformer is so important, that 15% of the price of an Inspire is not too much - it aluminum and made with a high class laser-cutter.

    I'm not really going to make an argument about your product cause that's not cool, bottom line is prop guards are very much disposable.

    Aluminum will not break so easy and this is a good point. Who believes, that a drone does better, if the protection breaks?? Is the Inspire safer, if the prop guards break away? You wouldn't believe how much crashes we tried - and the first of five aexo frame is still alive and works brilliant like the others. You just need to bend it back:) It´s not cheap, but it has a good quality.
    It seems to me, that you where lucky, and you never had an unexpected situation with your drone. But a lot of pilots that I know did have bad experiences - even professionals. They understand what we do.
    We believe in aerial exoskeleton and we think, that this will be mandatory in the future.
    We see it like a seat belt in a car. In the past a lot of people did not have seat belts, airbags, headrests - even not a crumple zone.

    Can´t you see, that this is something good? Someone who has been injured sees it. You don´t have to buy anything, if you don´t want to - but please don´t you spread bad words about our project. We don´t want to annoy anyone.

    Thank you.

    So far... early days of course, but no takers, the market will let you know how your pricing model works.

    I use the world language and not your own language - this belongs to everyone, right;)
    As long as you are able to understand, that the use cases are truly there, I´m happy..

    Aluminum has no adverse effect on GPS or magnet. In the video you see the prototypes with Naza V2 Flight Control - it works very well.

    Has this been tested under windy condition greater than 30 mph? I know the Inspire does amazingly well on its own but have more solid mass has more affect on with and turbulence.

    I fail to see the practicable application unless you don't want to take the time to safely operate your equipment. I have flown and flow and flown to the point where I am comfortable flying through the interior of my house. To me it just looks like it would give a false sense of security. My twoents anyway. Good luck. I also wonder about the adverse effects on the equipment if it is degrading battery performance by as much as 40%. My two cents anyway. Good luck.
