Why not just answer the most important question. How much was it cus if it is $3,000 or more dont think you will get many interested around here. The big Red Flag is the fact they have no prices on there website. Not alot of people want to give them personal contact info so they can find out it is most likely overpriced. Maybe they do not know how to do business over there but if they want to be successfull in the states they might want to change there business practices.

I believe that I read somewhere that the price was in excess of $10,000 including the base station and transmitter. Ok if you are a Government agency but very pricy for us mortals.

They always do what the master says, even a child of 3 years old with no prior experience can steer a Microdrone.

Thank God they exist, this forum is full of lot's of other nice quadrocopters which i like!... build on the same concept, but not quite comparable.

Who cares, just as long as your budget makes it possible to build or try one.
Let us not compare apple with a different somekind of fruit shall we?

i just want to share some stuff i did with them, that's all .
Very impressive... 86 sensors is a hell of a lot of info to handle. What kind of processor do you have in that thing?

Stop right there big guy, the MK fully loaded with cams will make much more
money, how u say? you can buy 5 MK fully loaded with cams.
while the drone is on 1 job site, you can have your crew at 5 different job
sites with the MK. DO THE MATH.
that drone cost over 20,000.00 YES THATS WHAT I SAID $20,000.00
take that to the bank.
i own a fully loaded mk with HD cams, and my 5 year old can fly it.
with gps/hold vario att hold you would have to be a moron to crash it.
trust me ,no different in flying,, only its size.
also i have 135 led lights,3 computer chips and 2 high power lasers to fly at night. 35 different combos, LETS TALK UFO.

I heard that thing cost between $30 and $50 thousand dollars.
My fully loaded UAVX Octocopter with GPS, gyro stabilized camera mount and Go Pro HD camera costs about $1700. How is this for stability.

Draganfly don't publish prices on their website. Their piddly little X6 is $26,000 and can only lift 500g. I think that makes this one rather good value.

We can all learn from looking at any and every multicopter, regardless of who built it and whether we think it's good or bad. So, please quit bitching 'cos you can't afford one and... pay attention! ;-)
