PolyHelo, a company founded by former Caltech professors, NASA scientists and Navy Seals, says it has reached its Kickstarter funding goal for the C-mi drone.

The company describes the C-mi as an all-in-one camera drone packed with professional features but designed for real-world consumer use. The C-mi was chosen as Kickstarter's staff pick and has passed its campaign goal of $125,000.

The drone’s digital user interface has been designed for easily controlled flight, changeable camera modes, live video viewing while the drone is still in flight, and real-time sharing of images and video to social media platforms – all from a single app, the company explains.

C-mi provides four main modes – follow, orbit, pano and manual – that control both the flyer and camera from a mobile device. According to PolyHelo, consumers can focus on capturing images or a video and not on how to fly or manage the drone.

Some of the other features of the C-mi are the following:

  • Multi-axis gimbal;
  • Retractable, high-definition camera;
  • Portable design (detachable legs);
  • Robust housing, designed to stand the abuse of everyday use; and
  • GPS tracking, with an option for waterproof GPS wearable trackers.

Mark Richardson, CEO of PolyHelo, describes C-mi as a “pro drone for everyone.”
