    That price is without a battery or transmitter. $758 with transmitter and battery. The photos show a GPS puck inside the frame but there is no mention of GPS or Return to Home in the specs. Don't see a vent to atmosphere or heat sinks for cooling ESC's. Overall it looks nice for the price considering it's waterproof and a 520 size quad with big motors and props. It resembles the Aquacopter frame.

    Edit: I did read the manual. It does have GPS.

    I'd almost think you'd be better off buying the Dex waterproof shell and building a true waterproof quad.
