I have been a software engineer and a web developer before taking on management roles.
The novelty of what we are trying to do is exciting and challenging at the same time, as it's the case for every innovative product. The UAV and drone technology is advancing at breakneck speed, and therefore our requirements and our understanding of user needs are changing rapidly, and we have to be able to adjust to create a product that addresses user needs and wants.

I like the Airbnb app and the minimal, less is more design approach that it follows to show as much as possible without cluttering the screen. The Fabulous app, which is a habit tracker is another example of beautiful design and enjoyable user experience. The Headspace meditation app because it uses a combination of colors, characters and other design elements to create an identity and distinguish itself from the competition.
The app is in continuous development, and we are adding more features based on user feedback, but the initial version of the app took around three months to be developed.
The main frustration for our users was the tedious process to log a flight plan and a lengthy form to fill every time. We made "Minimum Friction" as one of our guiding principles from the start and tried to streamline the process to log a flight plan by automating as much as possible and remove unnecessary steps.
We have localized our app for New Zealand Airspace and added all the rules and regulations from other authorities to create a one-stop shop for registration, flight planning and getting approvals from authorities. Currently, other apps only allow for basic flight planning only.
We are integrating with available flight controllers like DJI and Parrot to create a seamless experience from pre-flight planning, flying and receiving real-time notifications and post-flight reports.
Giving us feedback and what features they would like to see in the app. Also helping us by sharing the app with their friends and other people flying drones.
