AERO-POD 1: hover/fly

AERO-POD 1: hover/fly

Updated Mar, 5th 2013

My new Lean Canvas narrows early adopters down to one class: the model aviators.

We now can ship model kits to be assembled by the customer who is a tinkerer. Way less overhead, salaries.

PROBLEM
1) Wanting bigger payload
2) Latest cutting edge
technology
3) Longer flight times
EXISTING ALTERNATIVES
balloon, plane, quadcopter,
drone
SOLUTION
Product is loaded with sensors,
gyro, gps, wifi and G4-, all
software connected to give it
autonomous flight as well as
smart phone control.
Product is longer airborne
because of combination of
quadcopter & airfoil for longer
delivery routes
Product has greater payload
than anything currently on
market
UNIQUE VALUE
PROPOSITION
Will enable you to take precise
areal photo shots under your
control and with your high-end
equipment.
Heaviest payload on market.
HIGH-LEVEL CONCEPT
Works like a quadcopter with
wings: distance flying and
precise spot landing-, all under
GPS/computer control!
UNFAIR ADVANTAGE
Aggressive patent creation
Dream Team: Software by PA
quadcopter Dr.; Air foil design
by German model aviator
CUSTOMER SEGMENTS
Aviation Model Enthusiasts
EARLY ADOPTERS
Model aviators
