Drone startup Flygildi raises angel funding

Drone startup Flygildi, which is creating a drone that is disguised as a bird, flies flapping wings, and is undetectable by radar, has raised an angel round. The amount is undisclosed. Flygildi was founded by the two engineers Hjalti Harðarson and Dr. Leifur Þór Leifsson.

In a press release, Helga Viðarsdóttir, CEO of Spakur, and chairman of Flygildi, commented that the drone has already garnered significant interest from Tom Moss of the drone company Skydio; Palmer Luckey, the founder of Oculus; and the defense company Lockheed Martin, which has shown an interest in participating in further financing of the company.
