Be sure to check the air map for your area before purchasing. If you live within city limits of any major metro area chances are you are going to have to contact numerous places (small airports, heliports, etc) before flying. For me it was way too big of a pain (mainly because some small airports do not have dedicated resources taking calls, but you have to contact them pre flight), so had to return. Just hope this helps someone else.

I jumped. The gimbal AND drone for $299 is insane! I know their going out of business, but this is too good to pass up.

Can anybody recommend a good camera to pair with this?

Check out reviews for Yi 4K cameras. Its cheaper and par to par with GoPro black.

Does this one http://www.bestbuy.com/site/3dr-s...us-content include the gimbal and everything plus the backpack? Origins price is more than all the other packages

So if I don't have a camera (gopro) yet is this really a better deal that the phantom 3 advanced for example?

If you can grab a DJI Phantom Advance for 379.99 (they've been popping at that price sporadically), go with the Phantom.

I ended up getting this and grabbing a GoPro off of eBay. Reason being is with this for $299 and the GoPro for around $200 or so it's like $550 out the door after taxes and a memory card. Plus you can use the GoPro separately and you cannot use the camera on the phantoms separately.

Thanks for the feedback. I understand dji is better and think I will get this and wait for the Mavic.

Does the xiaomi yi mount to this gimbal and it's compatable with the 3dr with out modifications?
