    I was waiting all year for this. Decided not to get one after all the negative reviews.
    I heard it has some major flaws.

    I watched a few hours of youtube vids and summed up:

    Good:
    Stabilization - good in 25mph winds and surprised how well the video held.
    Light and portable
    Cheaper vs Phantom range
    Video is decent and on par with phantom vision + (sub gopro).
    Has sonar
    Frame is robust and can survive a few crashes (except for camera).

    Bad:
    Poor Battery + Frame Design
    Poor Battery charger
    Wifi range
    Very fragile - wifi wont reconnect on small bumps.
    No manuals/instructions.
    Drops in mid flight without warning.

    I fly my phantom over water frequently. I think the bebop is much suited to aerial street selfies.
