    I was interested until I saw the price. Also I see the battery is exposed underneath.

    Hmm .. it's a 450 class tri with double motors and flies for 15-20 mins.
    It appears to have a fixed tilting camera mount rather than a gimbal.
    The pain of losing a Phantom is nothing against the pain of forking out $7700.
    Floating won't prevent hard crashes, trees or being lost far out at sea.
    At that price, I could go through 6 x P2+ Phantoms - and have a substantial battery collection when I got to the 6th.
    I think I'll stick to the cheaper machine to get pics like this ..... (and they need to get some better photos in their sample gallery if they want to sell at this price level).

    No gimbal will make for some nausea-inducing video as well
