From Horizon hobby facebook page:

the camera will work with any 5.8 GHz capable iOS or Android device. I've personally seen it work on an iPhone 5 and a couple of different Samsung Galaxy devices, but check yours to make sure it will work!

For that price I'd buy a DJI Phantom 2.

I'd think about it for around $600.00, but 1G is too much.

A regular 350qx RTF is $470. Add on a $300 GoPro, $100 glb gimbal and $200 worth of fpv gear and you're in the same boat.

Of course you'll also end up with a surely better camera and fpv gear that gives you a real time feed that's not limited by wifi range...

The gimbal looks nice though

LMAO I would do the exact same thing building your own is really the better and cheaper way to go. The strippers are a bonus.

5.8ghz for video transmission?? I know an Iphone can do 5.8ghz because I have my wifi router at home set to that. I wonder what the range is like. I think they missed on the price but it does sound like a nice feature set.

Shoutout to the 518! But a gopro is a gopro and this camera is not a gopro.

This is definitely good for beginners with cash.

@savall. Pray we don't trade miller!!!

This is targeting the phantom 2 vision, it's RTF and has a wifi camera with a phone app
Because the vision is $1200 they thought $1000 is ok
Vision gets a long flight time (no mention of the flight time for the blade)
Blade gets a gimbal
It's nice to see competition!

I am more excited about that 250!
