    Not a Phantom, but does use a NAZA M Lite controller.

    Could be a LOT of fun. Seems to fly like a wet slug in regular propulsion mode, and, of course, no gimbal or cam stabilization at all... but for out and out flying, the VTOL would make it a bit more convenient for me and where I fly. I'm not seeing anything about flight times, though... that always makes my nervous.

    Plus... just adding it all up... $499 for the bird, $399 for the "PowerPACK"s, then batteries, and RC... you're well over a grand. For something that's as limited as this... way too much to spend.
