Our new financial partners will allow us to get product in the hands of our customers and dealers quicker, as well as bring new industry altering products to the market.” When asked about his next move, Tim Nilson said “My greatest career joy has been the drone industry. I love this industry and will remain the CEO at Lumenier and GetFPV for years to come. For me, I now have the financial backing to turn many new ideas into reality.”
