Remember the Lily drone, announced in 2015 and never produced? Well, although they got into all sorts of trouble, they seem determined to rise after the crash. Mota Group, Inc. acquired assets of Lily Robotics this year. They are now introducing Lily Next-Gen, a drone that brings the fun spirit of the original Lily drone but with improved features. The biggest improvement, I’d say, is that the drone seems to be actually produced. But other than that, Mota Group, Inc. announces that the Lily Next-Gen will shoot 4K video, 13MP stills and 120 fps slo-mo at 720p.
We’re still in shock after hearing that Lily Robotics is shutting down, but apparently this isn’t all. The crash of the Lily Drone is even worse than we imagined.
They are also facing a lawsuit by San Francisco district attorney’s office for false advertising and unfair business practices. And apparently, their promotional video was not even made by the drone they were promoting.
