PlexiFPV Perk Status
The PlexiFPV system was offered as a perk for the PlexiDrone crowd-funding on the Indiegogo website. The PlexiFPV system is considered an upgrade to the baseline PlexiDrone as it enables the pilot to receive an ultra high-strength video signal on a dedicated LCD screen. This offers a great benefit over lower resolution and much higher latency solutions that make use of mobile devices such as smart-phones and tablets.
What was the Issue Raised by Backers?
The PlexiFPV system did not appear on the dreamqii.com store when the PlexiDrone crowd-funding campaign ended. This caused confusion from backers that contributed for this perk. The main concern being that backers were unsure if this package was still even needed for their PlexiDrone, or if it had been replaced, and if they should pursue a refund for this item if any of the aforementioned concerns were correct.
What Caused this Issue?
When the PlexiDrone campaign ended, DreamQii had to complete negotiation with suppliers of all parts and sub-assemblies regarding price and volumes. Since the final price per unit for the PlexiFPV system was not known when the dreamqii.com website was initially launched (Dec. 1, 2015), we were not able to include it for sale on our web-store. This resulted in the backer confusion regarding the PlexiFPV system
Answers & Solutions
Do I still need the PlexiFPV?
If you would like to have long range, nearly zero latency, and high resolution live video while you are flying, then this package is the way to satisfy your needs. Despite what is advertised for other drone products, a dedicated FPV video system is still more reliable and out performs other video feeds viewed via mobile apps on smartphones or tablets. More information on why PlexiFPV is the preferred way to receive a live video feed from PlexiDrone can be found here.
Has PlexiFPV been replaced or become obsolete?
No, PlexiFPV has not been replaced. However, the actual video transmitter and receiver that will be delivered with your PlexiDrone perk are better performing than the ones originally ordered through the IndieGoGo campaign.
