    Many of us consider self flying to not be very useful and will probably be afraid to use it. You should actually take DJIs self flying technology seriously as it's lead by a team of 3-4 Tesla autopilot engineers who DJI managed to steal away from the company. They have really great people working on the technology.

    Hoping it lives up to the hype.

    Stealing - so much like other technology Chinese have gotten from around the world, and DJI technology is even stolen from them by other Chinese companies.

    And here's why we shouldn't. Zero top, sides or back monitors. So as long as the obstacles are on front or bottom you (should be) good. Hopefully.
