    With all the issues over Phantom imports into US the Kickstarter project Airdroid is looking more attractive all the time. This has already been mentioned in another post, but here is the original link:

    They have just updated their data on vibration attenuation, lights and international shipping. They expect to ship in June. Interesting alternative, but still without a gimbal

    This is an awesome drone to take when you're travelling and for doing hikes. I wonder which is the smallest remote control tx to go with it? It's such a shame that you can save so much size\weight with the drone, but your TX is a normal sized one :)

    unless you can fly with your tablet.


    This is cool but I swear I've seen that bike clip before on someones youtube page and they were using a 450. This is a really neat thing to have in the back seat of the car. Traffic jam on the highway? Launch it up and see how far you are backed up. I

    I remembered seeing a video about these guys putting a demonstration in front of a panel trying to score investors...i wasnt impressed so were the panel...lol.... The tri looked cheaply made. I doubt if it's a phantom killer. No thanks!!!

    For less than 5% of a proper tx's range though.

    Because... it doesn't have curved bodies like Apple products? ;)

    Surely all that footage was shot using a gimpball. If not then this is an amazing product:)
