    Drones

    I'm thinking about getting myself a Drone to play with. I've been looking at this one.

    Looks good.

    I bought a cheap one to try and my main problem with it was that the camera was fixed relative to the rest of the drone. At least this has a three axis gimble for the camera and the auto pilot facilities are a lot better - looks like a good price for the spec.

    I went ahead and ordered it today. I'll try to remember to update the thread after I take it for a ride or two.

    I took this for a spin in the backyard today. I'm impressed by the build and power it has. The camera view is outstanding.

    I'll need to find a large open field to really get a feel for it. The backyard gives me enough room to get used to the controls and navigating the thing though.
