65,000 dollars?! Who the heck is in charge of building this thing? The are obviously making a $63,000 profit.

And that , in part, is why our government is financially in trouble, bloated contracts with no fiscal responsibility. Im tired of the UAV companies (and UGV) charging our government, local or federal, a ridiculous price for something we know is not worth what WE spend on it.

You'd think for 65K they'd be able to afford a camera better than that

I'm pretty sure my OSD480 gets a lot better video
