    Looks like it has the same integrated iLook camera/FPV system as the Tali-500. Who knows what DJI has in the pipeline?

    WHOA ----

    I was wondering how they would do the 4 --> 8 proper transformation. This is pretty cool!!!

    So glad I didn't jump for the TALI H500... I've been monitoring this thread for a couple days now... I think I'm gonna sit back and see how this all plays out... looks to be a good Christmas this year :mrgreen:

    I believe the Tali-500 can do the dual motor thing also, making it a dodecacopter. :shock: I'm not sure what the real advantage is except for increased payload at the expense of 50% of flight time? One thing I do NOT like about the Scout is the cell-phone based "touch sticks" for control.

    The cellphone option is in addition to, it also has the same remote used on the Tali 500, which is a nice remote. I've been reading the Tali forum for the last month. A lot like this forum in its early days.

    I love the follow me feature. And how about it, it comes in the aluminum case!

    I like the "Follow Me" function, but you would need to pay attention to altitude - like riding your bike under hi-power lines or trees! But, on reflection, considering my age, it would probably just hover a lot :roll:
