I suppose they will be available via EasyPay as an accessory too?

I wonder what they are considering the "target-market" for these?

 

If the price is right I could see this being a great Xmas gift for a kid.

 

Is there something business related that people could/would buy these for?

probably target market of ages 10 to 25 +10 years - 2 years.  They are just trying to pull in more families, perhaps branch out to the more tech hungry consumers.  Perhaps who want to use these as security cams/potential fun.  I don't know.  I would love to see their marketing plan as well.  Bet its pretty sweet :)  I wonder if they have a cell antenna built in or if its just wifi.  also wonder if its going to be another service cost if so.  or free to current customers to use, just have to pay for the device.

I want the one that can fly. Just too bad it's battery life sucks while flying. I wonder if that battery is upgrade able?

I'm sure ifixit will probably get their hands on one. Or you could be adventurous yourself;).

I'll wait for iFixit to figure it out.

Believe it or not but 8 minutes is better than average flying time for a micro quad copter. One hour charge time is terrible though.

gotta keep in mind it may weight it down a bit tho...  So you gotta evenly distribute the weight.  But my question is what makes this one any better than previous drones?

    • Mine is still working fine here in Raleigh.   There were some outages related to the snow storm.    I have seen it take a couple of days to recover from storms.   It is not among the highest priority services.  
    • Looks like my MB gold at my office was finally decommissioned sometime last week. It was working the previous week and I was out of town last week. I came in today and it was powered down. I unplugged it and plugged it back in but it just keeps looping through trying to establish a connection. Looks like it's time to add it to our ewaste pile.
    • I did spot some NRCA in Crown Heights last weekend. Sadly because I'm using an iPhone I can't see the exact carrier combo but it did report that it was seeing 2 NR carriers. At first I thought it was a glitch or some weird stale data because my phone was still reporting NSA 5G and the primary NR carrier was the 80MHz n41 carrier but reading Sascha's article it's quite possible that my phone was using B2+B66 +n41+n41.  — — — — — On another note, it looks like someone found n5+n77+B2+B66 on Verizon:   
    • This entire FAA argument is stupid with no evidence at all that there is an issue with C-band.  You may be right that there is some conspiracy nut involved. The guard-band between what aircraft altimeters use and cellular C-band is 220MHz.  If any safety critical aircraft altimeter is reading signals from 220MHz away from the frequencies it is designed to use, that is a very broken safety critical device and should have been replaced it long ago.  Everything in an aircraft is designed and certified for precision and is checked regularly.  The aircraft is not designated as airworthy for instrument flight if the systems in it are not certified to be precise and in good working order.  If an altimeter is so broken that it is off by more than 220MHz from the frequencies it is designed to use, it could just as easily be off by 1GHz or more which would likely cause it to fall into other frequencies that are also already in use. 
    • https://www.pcmag.com/news/exclusive-we-found-t-mobiles-secret-weapon-against-c-band Seems like he's seeing: B2+B66 +n41+n41 n71+n41 Not that it really matters, I suppose:
