    They just took the Karama out. That is one nice drone. Wonder how resistant to water it is?

    Too flimsy, those arms will be ripped clean off in a light crash, this is the Phantoms greatest asset i think, its hard shell.

    Or they'll give way preventing shell cracking.

    I don't see it as an upgrade at all. I see it as a totally different craft for really a totally different purpose/purposes.

    I will probably wait until the dust settles and the first set of bugs are ironed out.

    Looks absolutely fantastic. Doesn't seem like it has *that* much of a leg up on the Phantoms as far as capability, but being so portable and so small it a huge asset. DJI's figuring out how to do it better and smaller - who knows what the next one will be. P5 maybe?

    Next generation, but tempting! I'm in on a new product when they come out with the Mavic-Phantom morphed into another modular platform (maybe smaller), and a controller that accepts iPad or iPhone. They could be positioned to be viewed top or bottom and interfaced with all DJI products. Stay tuned.
