Goldman Sachs Research

Drone shipments projected to rise from 2.2 million units in 2015
to more than 7.9 million units annually by 2020.

Drones are rapidly transitioning from gadgets for hobbyists to one
of the hottest technology items on the market.

Google, Facebook, Amazon and Walmart have entered the race
to provide a drone delivery service for e-commerce.

This will further increase the adoption of drones by consumers.

* Goldman Sachs Equity Research, Drones: Flying into the Mainstream, March 13, 2016

BI Intelligence:

Drones will be a significant part of our lives in the next 5 years

Shipments of consumer drones will more than quadruple over the next five years, fueled by increasing price competition and new technologies that make flying drones easier for beginners.

 

Product Lines

Camera, Drone. Reinvented.  

Lily Next-Gen™

Our Lily Next-Gen is an extremely easy-to-use camera drone in the spirit of the Lily flying camera. It features a 4K Ultra HD camera—a first and so far only one in its class, as well as a longer flight time than competitive products.

Lily Next-Gen’s Follow-Me feature captures stunning video of the user’s adventures. It’s smaller than most other drones, folding to the width of a smartphone to be taken anywhere. It’s the first in a line of Lily-brand drones for both fun and adventure as well as professional use. 

Above and Beyond  

Mota GIGA™ Series

With up to 90 minutes endurance, GIGA drones tackle demanding missions wherever and whenever. Optional REMOTE HANDS™ Flight Management System under development will optimize your GIGA for any mission, and prototype radar—a first in the industry—provides obstacle avoidance at greater range and higher precision than any other technology. 

Agile, Precise, Fast. 

MOTA Pro Live™ 

 Able to maneuver in the smallest of spaces, Mota Pro Live drones handle exceptionally precisely and quickly. One-button operation for auto flight functions and rapid deployment make them ideal for capturing video and photographs under the tightest of time constraints. Available in four and six-motor configurations.

Drones just got to be fun! 

Mota JETJAT®

From smaller than a golf ball to less per side than a jumbo paperclip, JETJAT drones provide the most fun-per-ounce, sending beautiful SD video to a smartphone. Winner of a Toy of the Year nomination by the Toy Industry Association, they are perfect entry-level drones for novice pilots as well as providing hours of fun for adults and children alike.

Lily Next-Gen vs Competitors

 

“We started with two people in 2003.”

Since 2003 we have come a long way in building a company that is a role model not only in size but in being innovative and in simplifying complex electronic gadgets. We are not about creating the most complicated gadget on the market. Instead, we make things simple to use so consumers will want to use them day in and day out. Think of the difference the iPhone made in simplifying how people make phone calls. That’s our strategy for making robots and drones part of our everyday lives. We created our business from the ground up with a strong foundation for growth. Our Regulation A public offering is a first step in inviting everyone who believes that robots and drones can make life easier to be part of this revolution.

We hope you will join us in making this happen.

Mota’s plans for blockchain in the drone industry “would be much larger than what the FAA is trying to accomplish by itself,” Faro said. “The FAA is working on a centralized system. We’re working on a global, multinational system of data that is freely accessible.”

Invest in Drone Simplicity

Relentless Focus on Innovation

We are exploring the application of blockchain technology to drones. Drones collect data, and blockchain offers a better way to capture, safeguard, and share data.

Blockchain technology already enables safe and secure activities such as online voting, digital rights protection, and cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.
