    12" props and 30 min flight time sounds very nice.

    450mm and it carries a real camera!!
    Looks like the company is new to quads so I'll wait to hear from early adopters before I buy but definitely interested.
    Their Youtube video is all computer renderings, no photos or video of a prototype so it might not be available for a while yet.
    They also have two larger quads in the pipeline.

    Mmmmm... retractable landing gear. And is that an easy-access hatch at the top? Mmmmmmm

    Looks slick. Will wait for pricing and full features before passing judgement, though.

    looks like quite a big bird with similar battery spec to the tali 500.

    If it is made by thunder tiger then it will be a really quality machine, I have owned quite a few thunder tiger raptor helicopters and all have been quality machines but they are not cheap at all as far as price goes! I cannot wait to see this quad!

    Looks like the GHOST will be available sooner than we can imagine!

    The size is a about one size bigger. Small Vs. Medium......

    from the video this GHOST is really fun to fly and watch at night with those LEDs on.

    Wouldn't a black flying machine absorb and retain more heat then a white flying machine? Just wondering?

    Probably. But I would think it'd still be well within operating temps for all the electronics... so unlikely to be anything to worry about.

    That looks really nice, especially with that light in the middle.

    In Australia we are not allowed to fly at night.

    That's good that you're sure but how about pointing us in the direction it listed officially somewhere?
