Idea & Mission
4mydrone is an “innovative startup of content” and technical information about drones and their ecosystems. It is therefore the first web site for drones and connected ecosystems where you can find all the information related to the drones-UAVs. From Apps to accessories, from all types of drones to professional payloads, from professional services to insurance.
“All in one place” for drones-UAVs
The idea of one website “All in one place” dedicated to drones, was born in the second half of 2015 to solve and bypass the search problem, through search engines.
Bypass the limits of the Web
Search engines do not always offer the right and immediate answers to user needs. Furthermore, in an evolving sector such as drones, the results offered by search engines – often doped by advertisements – are therefore not adequate.
The purpose of 4mydrone is therefore to bring together everything related to drones and their ecosystems in one place.
4mydrone therefore acts as a complete, exhaustive and above all constantly updated access point, for all those who use or wish to use remotely piloted systems – i.e. drones – for both work and hobby.
The contents offered by the site are managed through a powerful CMS and a refined internal search engine.
The information and data offered by 4mydrone are able to offer immediate and concrete answers to the needs of both beginners and professionals.
The contents of 4mydrone, accessible via the web, are offered free of charge everyone.
For more details on the history of 4mydrone, it is suggested to read the next paragraph.
The idea of 4mydrone
4mydrone was born in mid-2015 as a response to a personal need. In fact, having to approach the world of drones for professional purposes, the extreme fragmentation of this sector in terms of offers both from drone manufacturers and from manufacturers of accessories and components was immediately evident.
In addition, the searches made on the web to find the most suitable drone or accessory were extremely long and not very profitable. As the results of the search engines were often misleading or not relevant to the search.
From this arose the idea of creating a pilot project with the aim of bringing together all the information related to drones in a single directory. The original idea of the directory was to allow beginners and experts in the field to easily access all information. Data sheets and features of both the drones and the connected accessories had to be immediately available, avoiding waste of time in grueling searches on the web.
From directory to CMS website
The original idea of the web directory where to place the different categories of drones, accessories, components for drones, etc. it was only the basis for the transition from directory to CMS.
The directory, in fact, in addition to including basic information such as manufacturer’s name, website link and email, included only a couple of fields for some additional information. It was therefore limiting.
The analysis of ecosystems connected to drones, such as App, Software, Professional Payloads, highlighted the need to include diversified and specific information that did not link with the concept of web directory.
The analysis and the collection of structured data for the different sections: Drones, Apps, Accessories, Racing accessories, Professional Payloads, Professional Services, etc., therefore highlighted the need and the opportunity to be able to offer a whole series of dynamic data, through a CMS, with a simple and pleasant user interface.
Obviously, the creation of a CMS capable of satisfying the needs of any type of user worldwide, presupposed both the detailed and exhaustive acquisition of the contents relating to the various categories, together with the maintenance and updating of the information acquired and the expansion of the database.
The solution to these three crucial points has been identified and developed using the most modern technologies and is one of the strengths of the website. Drone-UAVs models, new products, apps, events, etc. are constantly updated in order to offer the user the latest possible up-to-date
Added value at zero cost
It is evident that only the contents of the 4mydrone Marketplace per se constitute a high added value offered at zero cost to each end user.
However the CMS although of high value content, could not exist without the natural completion of a Blog on drones-UVAs and their ecosystems. The contents of the Blog, consequently they could only be of high value. Indeed the articles, news, comments, guides, not they are trivial or obvious, and they constantly report the photograph of this sector in constant evolution.
New ideas for startups with drones
Finally, as a “Content Startup”, we could not ignore the present and future trends and opportunities offered in the drone sector such as aerial data.
In the sections of the Blog and in other future sections of the website, great emphasis is given to innovative ideas, such as aerial data, which in the near future will give rise to new startups related to drones.
