As we approach the start of the summer, we wanted to thank everyone for their continued support and enthusiasm. This month we were able to test out our proof of concept. This included taking our working prototype out into the field and attempting to fly it inside of different sized tubes. The two foot long drone flew flawlessly through many types of pipes including a sewer drain, a 5 foot tube, and a 3 and a half foot tube. We could not be more excited to confirm this proof of concept for our prototype.
We also wanted to say that out Owner and Founder, Elena Parrello, was happy to meet everyone at Drone Focus last month. She learned a lot about what is out there and is excited to reconnect with all of you soon!
We will be starting s crowdfunding campaign soon! Please keep an eye out on our Facebook page and on here, as that's where we'll be posting the link to the crowdfunding campaign!
There will be a couple of options for support, with an awesome 3D printed trophy for qualifying supporters! Thank you in advance for helping us spread the sunshine, and improve the lives of sewer inspectors everywhere!
If you've visited us before, you may notice our name has changed. Instead of Sunshine Industrial, we are now Sunshine Aerial Systems! Thank you for being understanding during this transition. It has been very smooth so far!
Also, feel free to join us at 1MillionCups Grand Forks tomorrow at 9am in Grand Forks, ND! And another event to add to the calendar: Sunshine Aerial Systems will be presenting at Drone Biz Luncheon in Grand Forks on Thursday, November 10th!
