We Develop Powerful Flying Robots
Approved by all 5 celebrity Shark Tank investors with a deal worth $1.5 million!
xCraft has been featured in multiple major press outlets including VentureBeat, Inc.com, Fortune, Business Insider, MarketWatch, UAS Magazine, Fast Company and TechCrunch.
The global urban air mobility market is projected to reach USD $86.83 Billion by 2035 (Source).
Urban Air Mobility (AKA “flying cars”) is an exciting space that people have dreamed about for decades. From the beginning, our founder's vision has always been to have xCraft move people and things efficiently and autonomously through the vast open airspace. Our plan is to continue to reshape the future of the drone industry right here in the USA.
xCraft develops technology that powers the future of autonomous flight. With a launch on ABC’s Shark Tank, xCraft has become “America’s Drone Company” creating an arsenal of innovative, patented drone systems that have forever changed the UAV landscape. Now our products are launching into a marketplace full of demand for the solutions we’ve crafted.
xCraft appeared on Shark Tank and was approved by all five celebrity investors. Following our debut on the show, we were featured in multiple major press outlets including VentureBeat, Inc.com, Fortune, Business Insider, MarketWatch, UAS Magazine, Fast Company, and TechCrunch.
We’ve raised over $4.3M from previous crowdfunding campaigns and now have more than 5,000 existing shareholders. Recently, we developed a USA-Built multirotor with a 2Kg payload for DoD and tactical operations and delivered drones to the US Air Force Academy for UAS training. We also added an aviation pioneer and founder of Scaled Composites, Burt Rutan, to our Advisory board.
And lastly, when it comes to our sales - purchase orders have already exceeded
Drones expand the reach of the human race, enabling us to quickly deliver life-saving medications, search and rescue more efficiently, safely spot wildfires, and even communicate in areas without cellular reception. But, prior to xCraft, there was a gap in the market for high quality UAV that fly extremely fast and far, while communicating with their counterparts.
xCraft's patented technologies are taking the drone industry to new heights. Our team provides valuable products to critical markets such as agriculture, defense, public safety, mining and construction. xCraft's unique drones are designed to outperform our competitors. These technologies, among others still in development, will also be used in the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) market.
As markets reach new heights, xCraft is partnering with companies in various industries to solve real world problems.
xCraft is committed to providing state-of-the-art technology to improve public safety. Our current solutions include the PANADRONE, SHADOW, MATRIX SE, and the NANO ONE.
These drones are becoming an invaluable tool in firefighting, rescue services, and law enforcement. This incredible aerial imaging technology is being used in more industries every day, but its value as a safety tool is also starting to be widely recognized.
Whether employed in disaster response or as part of a search and rescue mission, the many benefits of using drones are clear. Models like the xCraft Panadrone can quickly scan wide areas, record threats using high-resolution imagery, and give first responders immediate data to work with when allocating personnel and resources.
Combined with other technology such as thermal sensors, drones can also locate missing persons in remote locations in a fraction of the time it would take an on-the-ground search-and-rescue crew.
Surveying & Mapping
The geospatial industry is constantly looking for ways to improve data collection and accuracy. The addition of new UAV technology has become a mainstay factor adding to the speed of data collection and pinpoint accuracy.
xCraft technology harnesses the advancements of data collection sensors and the GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) to deliver high-quality mapping and surveying results. Our long-range, fully autonomous UAV platforms are pushing the edge of UAV technology in the Surveying and Mapping industry.
xCraft strives to support the military with low-cost, rugged, and simple drone operations to successfully support a large spectrum of conflict.
These operations can support:
In addition, we secure greater interoperability among system controlled communications, data products, data links, and payloads/mission-equipped packages on UAV.
xCraft UAV capabilities and new developments in technologies enable missions to be more effective with reduced risk. xCraft designs, implementation, and development of UAVs can significantly augment a mission’s outcome. The reduction of casualties is our main focus; we have minimized the soldier’s workload, vulnerability, and exposure to the enemy.
Mining & Construction
The use of mining drones has revolutionized the way large mine sites and quarries oversee their operations. Unlike traditional surveying methods, our drones are able to provide exceedingly quick and accurate data across a large territory. This dynamic, real-time data collection also facilitates communication between workers on the ground and management at other sites.
Our drones are equipped with downward-facing cameras that are able to capture highly detailed images of a mining site from a variety of angles. The resulting models and images allow precise calculation of stockpile values and the amount of material that can be moved. Additionally, these images help managers pinpoint safety concerns that might affect workers at any given work site.
While our drones thrive in mining and surveying capacities, they can provide immense value across multiple verticals. In fact, the Panadrone, is a fully autonomous tethered “drone-in-a-box” that can fly up to 400 feet and remain airborne for 24+ hours. This system, which features an aerial camera and pop-up mesh network for communication, will be used by one of our customers to survey disaster areas.
In addition to Panadrone, our innovations have the ability to hit major markets in diverse industries.
Here’s a look at the rest of our product pipeline:
The innovative solution for surveying and mapping
Everything you need to begin capturing high-res mapping images is included in the MATRIX RTK Package. We designed the MATRIX RTK to be a one-stop solution for surveyors and engineers. We have developed a GPS bay station to be used alongside the MATRIX RTK to achieve autonomous route precision down to centimeters.
We are currently developing an image stitching software that would allow high-res mapping images taken during a flight to be stitched and processed in a fraction of the time it takes currently.
Bringing state of the art surveillance to security and defense departments
Providing the modern foot soldier with an ultra-portable, immediately deployable EO and IR micro UAS for real-time situational awareness. The xCraft NANO ONE is a rugged, American-Made platform with extended 30-minute endurance and best-in-class wind and rain tolerance. Simple and intuitive operation in GPS or GPS denied Environments, Auto Return, and Lost Link failsafe features preserve mission success when it matters most.
xCraft’s Shadow V2.0 is a portable, unmanned aerial system capable of 24hr+ tethered flight at altitudes of up to 100ft.
The UAS optionally integrates seamlessly with a secure Rajant Mesh communication network as a relay node and offers real-time streaming HD video, making it a valuable asset for any situation requiring secure pop-up surveillance and/or communication.
Set up is as easy as plugging in the 120/240VAC tether and sending the launch command through the controller. Pre-loaded flight stabilization software keeps the UAS hovering above the launch point at a fixed altitude, adjusting for wind (up to 30 knots or 34 mph) and light rain. When the mission is complete, a simple “land” command transmitted through the controller returns the UAS to the ground, where it can be unplugged, packed, and ready for transport in minutes. The system includes an emergency backup power system that will safely return the UAS to the ground in the event of a primary power system failure.
Five Pound Payload. American-Made Workhorse.
The MATRIX SE is powerful and efficient. It comes with a SUI Controller and Android tablet. Depending on what you need, the Matrix SE has options. Easily swap payloads to meet your desired outcome. 4K camera with 3.5X zoom, LIDAR, Thermal, IR, EO, and Multispectral payloads are available.
Maximizing scouting efficiency and accuracy
For quick and thorough surveying and scouting, we recommend the Maverick Mapper. It can autonomously map a 40-acre area in a quick, 25-minute flight. The Mapper comes with a Skydroid controller that’s compatible with any iOS or Android phone or tablet.
At xCraft, we are on a mission to develop powerful flying robots that change the world. Our vision is to better the planet and bring value to people’s lives by cultivating love, personal fulfillment, and innovation. We take pride in being leaders in American technological innovation, as we strive to surpass our customers’ expectations, while delivering undeniable value. We expect excellence, measure by results, and value character as a core trait in each of our team members.
xCraft has proven its staying power, after nearly 8 years of disrupting the drone industry. Our innovative, patented drone technology is outperforming our competitors and solving some of the world’s biggest challenges.
As “America’s Drone Company”, we see it as our mission to bring better, more efficient, life-saving solutions to the drone industry. Over our last Reg A+ campaigns and two Reg CF campaigns, we raised approximately $4.3M which enabled us to develop three new game-changing drone systems. Our company’s investors include over 5,000 shareholders. We hope you’ll join us, too, as we move into our next phase of innovation and continue to bring life-changing technology to the market.
Disclosure on prior Kickstarter & Indiegogo Campaigns: In 2015, xCraft ran a successful Kickstarter campaign and later an Indiegogo campaign for the PhoneDrone. The concept was just what the name implies; it was a drone that carried a smartphone - using its camera, processor, GPS, and cellular connectivity to create an intelligent flying robot. xCraft has been issued patents for this technology.
Although the initial funding went well, the project faced many challenges and delays in delivery, culminating with our manufacturer in China pulling the plug and walking away with almost $300k of our backer’s money. This was a huge blow to a small startup and to our community. We decided to do the right thing; cancel the project and pledge to refund backers. Today, we have already provided many refunds, but the work is not done. We are continuing to refund every single backer. Up to $150k of funds from this raise may go to refunds for those previous campaigns.
Proudly established in the Pacific Northwest, xCraft, through innovative design and manufacturing has provided US-made solutions for many industries including Public Safety, Surveying, Construction, and Defense. Alongside these industries, xCraft has its eye on the emerging Urban Air Mobility Market, developing technology that will enable fast, efficient, and quiet autonomous flight.

When Charles and I founded xCraft in 2014 we dreamed of bringing better, more efficient, life-changing solutions to the drone industry. We saw drones as the solution to some of the world’s challenges, including defense, energy, security, and public safety. But we also saw an industry that lacked innovation and improvement.
So we decided to take matters into our own hands by building the first prototype of the XPlusOne drone in my garage. Sure, we had a lot to learn, and we’ve failed many times, but we continue to have a passion for flight and a desire to change the world.
Today, we’re doing some incredible things to help make the earth a better planet for humans by creating faster, more efficient drones built with unique patented technology.
In fact, I wanted to take a moment to share a few things we are doing now to reach our goals…
Earlier this month we announced our new partnership with none other than T-Mobile! This is huge, xCraft now can offer 5G solutions for enterprise, public safety, government and other key business segments! That’s right, America’s Drone Company is now taking 5G to the skies with T-Mobile for Business Partnership. This partnership is yet another example of how xCraft is soaring to new heights and continues to push the limits with our American Made drone solutions and making our mark in this ever evolving industry.
Growing The Team
Last year, we hired a Sales Lead at xCraft. Refocusing our sales strategy toward connecting with new distributors and accentuating our already valuable relationships with a variety of industry partners. With three software developers currently contracted to improve our product features, we’ve also hired two UAV Technicians, and are adding others to the team in the very near future.
We’ve launched a brand new, SEO-optimized, 33-page website – complete with detailed imagery for each of our products as well as an improved user experience. Through various social media platforms and blogging, we’ve continued our efforts to inform and educate the public about industry trends and company happenings.
Research and Development
2022 has us working steadily on version 2 of the Panadrone. We’ve allocated capital towards adding new software features, and even some hardware features, for simplicity and functionality. We’ve also redesigned our nest shell, specifically improving how the lid operates and ensuring that the tether is maintaining proper tension at all times.
Bringing the Maverick SE to market
Hitting the market later this summer, the Maverick SE has sporty power, increasing the flight experience of the user. It has an enclosed and ducted design, maximizing flight efficiency of up to 20 minutes. Interchangeable FPV is also included. Easily go from viewing footage on an external display to experiencing what the drone sees in a completely immersive FPV. Additionally, this UAS has return to home, loiter, and hold features.

Before we go, did we mention we’re working on flying cars?
A lot of people have asked for more details on our plans around flying cars so we thought this would be a perfect opportunity to present our thoughts on where xCraft fits in this new and exciting market!
Urban Air Mobility (AKA “flying cars”) is an exciting space that people have dreamed about for decades. It was part of our founder’s original vision to see xCraft’s technology used to help move people and things efficiently and autonomously through the vast open airspace. Although it’s an exciting dream that seems to be closer to reality, we foresee several obstacles to full-scale adoption in the marketplace. Most notably, these obstacles are:
1. Intrinsic noise generated by the flying vehicles
2. Passenger throughput capability of a large scale air taxi operation
Aircraft are noisy. Even a small aircraft such as the Schweitzer 300C helicopter, emits almost 90 dB of noise at 100 feet away (citation). This is an uncomfortable amount of noise that can cause permanent hearing loss with long-term exposure (citation). A small flying car (or eVTOL as they are called) would likely generate even more noise than a Schweitzer 300C since they have more rotors with shorter blades which need to spin faster than a helicopter’s to produce the same lift. We don’t see public acceptance of such noisy eVTOLs being deployed on a mass scale in urban environments until this problem is solved. That is why it’s one of the key focus areas of xCraft’s future technology development.
Getting people in and out of a flying taxi at the same rate as they can do so in an Uber today is a huge challenge facing the Urban Air Mobility market. Many proposals revolve around placing eVTOL ports on top of skyscrapers. This presents the obvious challenge of getting people up and down elevators much faster than they do today. Elevators were not built to handle adequate rider volume. Also, to compete with ground-based taxis, hundreds, if not thousands of eVTOL flights would need to operate from a single location per hour. This is simply not feasible given airspace and time constraints. Consider that the busiest airport in the world (Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta) handles approximately 200 flights per hour (citation) with a vastly larger logistical infrastructure than could fit on top of a building. To overcome this obstacle, clean sheet ideas need to be presented that remove the bottlenecks and allow true competition with existing ground-based transportation approaches. This is the second key focus area of xCraft’s future technology development.
To the next level!

Our Campaign will be closing Monday, August 1 at 11:59PM PST! There are only three more days for you to get in on the action!

Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.
How much can I invest?
With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
When will I receive my shares?
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
What will the return on my investment be?
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
Can I cancel my investment?
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
What is the difference between Regulation Crowdfunding and Regulation A+?
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
