I like to reward those who develop stuff on their own.
Why I buy from
DJI PhotoShip one
Rusty at AGLhobbies
Quinton @ Multiwiicopter.com
Tabb @ CineStar (wish I bought from him)
Wing the small developers are who have made this industry. If we turn I them and buy Rabbit FlightControllers, clone gimbals on eBay and fake frames from online sites then they are all going to stop innovating and move to a different niche market.
Part of being an aware consumer is knowing what our actions as buyers causes
Wing I do not fall into the race to the bottom and hence do not shop as walmart.
I am not going to over spend or buy more toys on the backs of others.
Don't get me wrong customer service plays a big part in my decision to buy from a company. however I work hard for my money. I slave hours on end to keep my client base happy. I have a family to care for. I nor you should owe ANYONE support. They, the developers/inventors chose their career paths and made the decision to take risk in a financially challenged time. Just like I chose a career in art and media. Nobody owes me anything, I earn every bit of money I make by providing the best quality product I can at the lowest possible price. I do what I can to be flexible on my rates. Now people can go elsewhere and get cheaper rates than I offer, but the chances of getting the same quality of product and service for a cheaper rate is slim. If they can, I don't blame them for going that route. They owe me nothing, it is their money. So, again, I will definitely buy from someone that sells a similar product in quality at almost half the price.
Now, someone was equating me to an occupy movement squatter. Does this mentality sound like I agree with that stuff? Actually it makes him seem like he thinks the world owes him something because he is a developer. That is occupy mentality there, not mine.
