This description from Banggood should make everything clear...

Description:
The quadcopters models " medium " , that is to say, with a distance of 14-24 cm between each motor ( a completely arbitrary value ) , are becoming more numerous. The Eye One Xtreme RC Logger or alias LaTrax are perfect illustrations . Galaxy 3 Visitor Nine Eagles will soon join them. Hopefully it is more successful than its little brother the Galaxy Visitor 2 . What could be the case if the device is based on a GPS rather than electronic compasses to power the drive controller in flight information.

It discusses the main features : an independent way of theft of camera orientation , a function return automated its starting point , a camera for photos and videos in flight. To this is added a "Following " mode: it is hoped that this is a function of monitoring the radio , which could be very interesting to shoot oneself in the practice of a sport nine eagles ... galaxy 3 visitor quadcopter 2Le remaining characteristics , including size, weight, type of engine ( they are probably brushless) , battery, availability and price are still unknown. And for illustration only , we have so far that 3D rendering paparazziesque to put our teeth ...

This is not a micro... The size will be about the same as the Xtreme or even larger...

Looks good if it is brushless. "( they are probably brushless)" from Bangood's site is a bit ambiguous

Waterbound...how much would you be willing to pay for a micro with GPS? I am curious what people's thoughts are on this possibility.

I don't know.. It all comes down to how good do they make it look on video to the point I make another impulse buy! I think something with that kind of nano technology is a ways off but it could demand $500-1000 easily IMO. It has to work, it can't fly away, have waypoints etc., that kind of technology in a nano package would be an incredible seller. Just looking at where we were 3-4 years prior compared to footprints getting smaller is amazing.

I can't remember who said it, but someone posted a year or so ago and stated that multi rotors should be integrated with components by choice, meaning if you want GPS, fpv functionality that all you would need to do is add the component to the system. In a perfect world that would mean a system that was built to be compatible with known components and it would be sold that way. Truly plug and play for every component.
It's hard to state what I would put as a dollar amount or value on something like that but I believe it would be very popular, same as a micro/mini with full navigation and related capabilities. The closest thing I can relate to full navigation functions is something like an APM system or NAza etc., so put that technology in a micro package and I would pay for it

The reason I ask, is because I have been researching this type of build, and given existing components it would be in the $700 range or so...mass manufacturing could bring thr cost down, but you would still likely be looking at around $500. Maybe $499.99. The argument I have heard from people is that few people would be willing to pay that if they think they can get a bigger, and therefore perceived BETTER system for the same or cheaper.

I have been looking into it as well and could probably benefit a separate thread on the topic, would be nice to get an open sourced project out of this, I would definitely devote time and energy to helping the cause. I have a long way to go but where I work we develop and test aircraft communications and have the ability to have detailed conversations with some real gurus in the communications areas so would personally pic to hear everyone's thoughts on ideas towards those goals.

You can build a 350 size quad for around $300-350 with APM, transmitter,lipos, charger.... rtf. At least i'm trying. still waiting for all the parts.

I agree. We could take this elsewhere. I have thought about trying to build a potential base of interested parties, and then suggesting a crowd-sourced option to fund an ultimate production. I have someone now with a carbon fiber mini to micro (slightly bigger than a Ladybird, but smaller than a 180qx) frame capable of carrying a fully featured FC, and have been discussing this possibility with him.

The point is, it would be smaller than a 350 size. And, that is the type of mentality I suggested. A micro with GPS would be a cool feat for no other reason but miniaturization of the tech, BUT, it could potentially have a limited market due to perception its small, so it should be cheap, and that it wouldn't be able to carry something like a GoPro.
