    To have any flight time the thing would have to be almost entirely composed of LiPo battery.

    It's nice to be a graphics designer. Reality isn't so important.

    No way it could do straight down photography with those cameras so it's not legit.

    If Apple built a drone..

    I'd be all over. Once that elegant hunk of beautifully cut glass & aluminum fall out of the sky it will kill more than just a few nerds. I just hope it's google nerds!

    APPLE RULES!!

    Drone market is a real huge market and any big manufacturer would like to jump into it. Why not Apple?

    Because we're clearly much cooler than you.

    And that's really a huge accomplishment when interneting.

    Obviously. Oh how special. If my dreams come true, one day, maybe I will achieve your internet level of cool.

    Because quadcopters are toy grade that you just fly around like a rc helicopter. A drone like a phantom has the ability to have autonomous flight. Any questions????

    Because you would need to call some quad-copters, some hexa-copters and some octo-copters, and almost nobody would understand what you are talking about. Drone is a short and concise term for a semi-autonomous airborne utility platform.
