Glad to see more entries into the multirotor market that aren't sinfully ugly! I love the retracts. The 4 to 6 rotor upgrade is an interesting feature.

On their facebook page they hinted that the pricing will be "surprising"...which tells me it won't be. Off the top of my head Im guessing it will be in the same ballpark as the Phantom 2 if not a little higher.

of course it will cost more then a P2, this is a much larger quad, it looks like a Skyhero Spyder, those quads costs over 2000 dollar when bought as a RTF Kit, you cant compare this to a DJI Phantom2. I have a DJI Phantom2 but if they would mass produce this thing as a RTF package like the phantom, the price could drop a bit but the carbon fibre frame alone is pretty expensive compared to a Phantom. I would be very interested in such a copter, i always wanted a larger Phantom2 Version with more payload and better materials.

wow!!

great news!

DJI and competitors beware!

aling dominated the sales rc helicopters and crushed the traditional manufacturers.

and will probably dominate multicopters too.

Hey Jeff --

I didn't know you are with Align now. Glad to see you have ventured over to the MR side of RCGroups. :-)

Stephen (Steph280...) started a thread here, over a year ago, that Align was going to get into multi rotors, so it looks like it is finally coming to fruition. That's good, in my opinion, as DJI could use some real competition.

Anyway, I'm looking to hear more about these new platforms.

I love Align.
They popularized the RC helicopters with cheap super combos and exellent quality.
I hope they do this with multirotor too.

align could hire IBCRAZY for fpv tester.
