Successful Kickstarter Campaign ZANO Nano Drone Starts Shipping

ZANO, a very successful European Kickstarter project, has delivered their first nano drone to a customer. So what is the ZANO?

ZANO Nano Drone

Autonomous, Intelligent, Developable. Meet ZANO the world’s most sophisticated nano drone – aerial photo and HD video capture platform.

ZANO is an ultra-portable, personal aerial photography and HD video capture platform, Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and intelligent enough to fly all by itself! ZANO connects directly to your smart device (iOS or Android)  via onboard WiFi and enables you to instantly begin capturing and sharing moments like never before.

“When we began work on ZANO, our goal was to make aerial photography and video capture truly accessible to everyone. This meant making ZANO small and lightweight, yet durable enough to take with you anywhere. Intelligent enough so no piloting skills were required, and most of all, pricing ZANO at a point that makes it affordable.” Reece Crowther, Head of Marketing

ZANO – Autonomous. Intelligent. Swarming. Nano Drone.

The first real delivery is great news for a project that raised $3.4 million dollars in under two months and has since been plagued with delays, missing their own shipping deadlines. (How bad has the shipping delay really been? Check out the iPhone’s in the YouTube video above, that will give you an indication.) A recent announcement from Torquing states “Shipping has begun and we currently have 250 units that the team are busy packaging and labeling for delivery and we anticipate that these will be in transit very soon.”

Earlier this year, Torquing raised over £2.3 million ($3.4 million) in under two months, becoming the most crowdfunded Kickstarter project in Europe ever. However, since then, the company has repeatedly missed its own shipping deadlines. The longer the Zano delays, the tougher time the device will have competing against larger and more established rivals like DJI or Parrot.
