The Micro Drone 3.0 project has already exceeded 400% of committed contributions after 5 days of fund raising. This is the next hot crowd funded drone to watch
Yes, we have reported on several successes, and many more failures, that have gone the crowd funding route. However, few have had the immediate draw that the Micro Drone 3.0 has had. See the UAV in action:

“About Extreme Fliers
We are a small group of inventors, engineers and of course, drone enthusiasts.
Micro Drone 3.0 is a great product but also it is a platform that continuously evolves with a pipeline of ideas to create new functionality through modules, be that serious stuff like a smart module for monitoring air quality, night vision camera or fun modules such as a nerf gun shooter, we have the engineering experience and know how to develop new and exciting modules which snap on to the Drone. This is just the beginning and we can’t wait to see what you all comes up with!
What started as a personal passion, Micro Drone has evolved into a product that has developed so much from it’s users. With Micro Drone 3.0 finally here, the exciting thing about the coming months and years is building on the platform and furthering the technology. We can’t wait to see what we accomplish together. Since Vernon first demonstrated Micro Drone 2.0 at Techcrunch Disrupt NY in 2013, we realised that building great technology is within our collective reach. We have the ability to hire top engineers for product development all over the world, so we also want to share our plans and allow users to be part of the process. You get to be involved with other users who believe in us and share our vision. You have really inspired us and we have learnt so much about advanced technologies, from rotor theory, electronics and industrial design. We micro-sized it and applied this to Micro Drone 3.0 to create highly desirable sophisticated features. We then tweaked and perfected the concepts, building countless prototypes to make it consumer friendly and bringing together the best ideas to create the next model.
We want you to be the first to get your hands on Micro Drone 3.0 and we want you to share your feedback and comments. With your help, we will be able to finalise tooling to go into production.“
