    I just got this email from Helipal offering a nice looking MR called Storm Drone:

    The link to see it in detail is this: http://www.helipal.com/storm-drone-6-gps-flying-platform.html?email=20131128

    The price was dropped from over $1k to $658.00, too close to the Phantom price.
    It offers so many features and seems so nice, anyone recommend it? I need a back up bird in case mine dives into open ocean one of these days.

    The Storm Drone is a decent platform, it's pretty much a customized FW550 frame, with landing gear from a Tarot 680/690. The reduced price listed there is a good deal, it would cost you nearly that to build the same setup part-by-part.

    Just note that it has the NAZA-M lite as opposed to the v2, but that might not make much of a difference to some pilots.
