DroningON is a fresh and new brand created to showcase the latest in RC and to bring genuine, unbiased and honest reviews to its viewers. DroningON prides itself on quality video content, attention-grabbing editorial and constructive critical analysis and opinion.

As a fanatic for everything RC, Ash started flying nitro/glow fuel aircraft at the age of 12 and has been airborne ever since with helicopters, wings, gliders, quads and fixed-wing!

In 2015 a rather excited Ash invested in a crowd-funded drone called Zano but he quickly realized that the project and the technical concepts were deeply flawed. He raised these concerns with other backers which prompted Torquing Robotics (the company responsible for the crowd-funder) to increase communication and clarity with their customers, but the project rapidly looked unable to delivery. Ash fortunately obtained a refund just months after initially backing the project.

Constructively and publicly voicing the technical issues with Zano resulted in Ash being removed from various Facebook groups created by other devoted (but naive) backers, therefore he created a new group on Facebook to help other backers to understand the issues with Zano and to highlight the risks, fortunately they listened, appreciated the advice and obtained refunds.

The new group grew rapidly and assisted hundreds of Zano backers with understanding the project issues, many of those backers obtained a refund just prior to Torquing Robotics announcing liquidation and cancelling the project. The group and new community remained strong and focused on assisting other backers in obtaining refunds via their banks and PayPal.

Not wishing to close the group after helping so many, Ash branded the group with a new name 'DroningON' and started to monitor other crowd-funded drone campaigns, reporting on them via our new website www.droningon.co - the website proved popular and became a go-to destination for critical technical analysis of new drone campaigns including OnagoFly, Kudrone, SelFly, Gobe and others, helping potential backers avoid dangerous or flawed campaigns.

In the years since, DroningON has grown dramatically by working directly with RC retailers such as BangGood, GearBest, TomTop and HobbyWow, as well as dealers and manufacturers such as DJI, SimToo, Freewell, Energen, Mota, Extreme Fliers and more. In just over 2 years, the YouTube channel has grown to over 15,000 subscribers (droningon.co/youtube).

NOW we need YOUR help because we wish to review bigger and newer drones, but we cannot do so due to their cost to buy. Therefore this Patreon has been setup to create a fund enabling the purchase of the latest and greatest, that will allow us to bring newer and fresher reviews to you and our channel, plus as a Patreon supporter, you'll be entitled to giveaways, freebies and exclusive videos created JUST FOR YOU.

Our viewers mean everything to us, the comments and feedback that we receive on our articles and videos grows my enthusiasm to do more and more, I thank you all sincerely for that and for the support that you have all given since our inception.
