Please note that this is a simulation of the Dragonfly and the
Blackbird working together. This is a project in development and the
screens on the Dragonfly are simulated for demonstration purposes only.
Project Blackbird (tm.)… the ultimate Docking station for the Dragonfly. As
some of you have actually asked for this, Jeff and the idealfuture team
could not wait to unveil this patent pending, fully engineered and virtually ready for
production docking solution.
***Please note, the Blackbird will NOT take away from our product development for the Dragonfly as the Blackbird is already fully engineered and is essentially production ready.

And you better have at least one power strip
to have a way to plug in all the components. This is all in addition to

also knows how frustrating they are to set up.
