This is a beautiful piece of well thought out, designed and manufactured technology…I am so happy to be at the receiving end of the DreamQii team’s hard work, determination to create something special and wonderful attention to detail.
…the DreamQii box [packaging], both inside and out, looks and feels great, and very premium.
…the genius small foam inserts around the box keep the packaging minimal (you should give Amazon some tips) and it is very well protected…There is no damage or signs of excessive wear on the box, it’s in pretty much ‘mint’ condition.
Shipping Program Status
DreamQii began shipping campaign perks to PlexiDrone campaign Backers in May 2018. Backers were selected for this shipping program based on their geographic location, their expertise, and their willingness to provide DreamQii with feedback about their overall shipping experience.
This shipping program will continue through phases scheduled to align with production rate changes, DreamQii company expansion, product certification approvals, and the completion of intellectual property filings (just to name a few).
DreamQii’s shipping program is designed to address the following challenges and manage production rates accordingly:
- Adherence to export control regulations to 90+ countries
- Minimizing border delays & fees that vary with possible package declaration options
- Minimizing import duty feeds to backers
- Minimizing overall shipping cost
- In-progress intellectual property (IP) filings
- DreamQii company expansion (ongoing)
How are Backers Selected?
Backers scheduled to receive PlexiDrone perks in this shipping phase one are selected based on items such as, their residence in regions where the majority of backers reside, and where the highest identified risks to unexpected shipping and import costs. Backers were also selected based on their willingness to protect DreamQii intellectual property, press embargos, and overall competitive advantage via specialized Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs).
Backers Continue Receiving Perks
PlexiDrone campaign backers will continue to receive perk items scheduled in phase 1 of our shipping program. DreamQii’s customer support staff are reaching out to backers to provide details of what perks will be shipped, tracking information, and any documentation that requires review and approval. DreamQii then maintains communication with these backers post-delivery in order to gather important information about their experience. Phase 1 of our shipping program is scheduled to end in August-September 2018 with delivery of PlexiPack HS perks.

Supporting PlexiDrone Production Rates
PlexiDrone is a complex product with thousands of components to manage. Everything from capacitors to injection-molded components has to be continuously managed for procurement. Our DreamQii production team has established partnerships with component vendors and contract manufacturers to take over the management of the bill of materials (BOM) at the component level and assembly level. This allows our team to focus on production process refinement and quality assurance as we move through our production ramps and shipping program.

DreamQii Expansion & Customer Support
Supporting the entry into service of thousands of PlexiDrone units requires a team of professionals to support our customers, liaise with manufacturing, and attain our business development goals. For DreamQii, this means growing our team and scaling our infrastructure to meet the demand of our entry into service Backers and customers. Part of this work means creating and curating content to improve our customer support experience, and readily help each customer use PlexiDrone to its maximum potential. An example of this work includes branded customer support videos to guide users through key usage scenarios of the PlexiDrone product line.

PlexiDrone Reviews: Perk Unboxing
PlexiDrone campaign Backer Terry D. is an avid technophile with a background in engineering. Terry asked for permission to post his own unboxing review of the first perk package he received. His industry experience made him a good candidate to provide us with feedback regarding the overall mechanical and electrical design of our product. This was his first “Unboxing” video. For more of Terry’s product reviews and teardowns, check out his new YouTube channel, and remember to like and subscribe!
PlexiDrone Reviews: Detachable Arms Teardown
Terry followed up his original video by asking to post a tear-down of PlexiDrone’s Detachable Arms. In this video Terry goes over his impressions on the overall design features inside and outside of PlexiDrone’s Detachable Arms. Since posting this video, Terry has has made plans to do a little destructive testing. Our DreamQii customer support team was happy to supply him with the parts needed to make it happen.
A big thanks goes out to Terry and all Backers that have provided DreamQii with invaluable feedback!
Is PlexiDrone Still Competitive?
PlexiDrone’s key design features are unique in the drone marketplace. For example, a portable and fully modular drone has many advantages over a drone design that is just portable (or foldable). This is especially true when considering the amount of power packed into your PlexiDrone X8. In our next series of updates DreamQii will explain and showcase / review PlexiDrone‘s market-leading design features. We know this is a very important question to address with our community of backers, and we look forward to showing off PlexiDrone design features and options…
