Reviews are bad. Great camera, wobbly drive performance and no gimbal or stabilization for the camera. Lots of lag as well in the video feed. All of this according to CNET.

Last I checked, no one wants to spend money on something that would be better spent elsewhere. $300 isn't chump change. The video on this doesn't warrant the money, whether or not Adorama discounted it by 50%. I can only assume it wasn't selling at the original asking price for that kind of a discount.

I'm in the market for this type of product. For the good of the community, I post whether or not I buy any particular product. How is it bad if I TD a good deal on what I judge to be an inferior product for me? In the end, it's just a bad deal... Unless it's free, that is.

LOL!!!! I guess you can be here since 2008 and still be a noob. There's a "not a good product" reason for TD.

This thing also is reported as having bad motor mounts. Read the reviews, the motors pop out and the craft crashes. If you buy watch for cracks in the plastic mounts.

hey, i most sincerely hope you find something better for $300. i am not saying i would buy this, but i also wouldn't be likely to spend less than twice the money for anything significantly better.

true, because i think that 'not a good product' is a subjective reason. i think toyotas drive like crap and would never buy one. and yet millions of people disagree. if my refusal to judge other people's preferences makes me a noob, i'm ok with that.
