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?

    • Curious as to how SCP works with it regarding NSA, particularly in markets with n41 BW=100 and second channel.
    • Downloading now. ****DVK3, 2.3 GB in size. 
    • T-Mobile eNB 879491/879493/879494 on the keep site map is located at 40.77536940167816, -73.92011957697034. Sprint eNB 5762 is now T-Mobile eNB 306271. Located at 40.582064139078206, -74.16175767702059 Weirdly both of the new Sprint conversions that have been found in Staten Island (eNB 306271 and eNB 326459) were sites I visited earlier this summer but neither of them were broadcasting the keep PLMN at the time. In fact, Sprint eNB 5762 was completely offline when I visited. I suspected both sites were keep sites based on their location relative to neighboring T-Mobile sites so I was surprised when I didn't spot 312-250 coming from them. Glad to see T-Mobile still kept them. Also T-Mobile isn't done with non-conversion new builds in the city. T-Mobile eNB 894075 is a brand new site added this summer on Rockefeller University's campus in Manhattan. It gives me hope for neighborhoods like Red Hook and Williamsburg that desperately need sites along the waterfront.
    • Nearly every site I encountered in the Bronx was running N41 SA. Consistent pings in the low teens and speeds were actually great. Sprint eNB 9294 got converted but isn't live yet. Location: 40.83091697219704, -73.8178106151994   Sprint eNB unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 310677 Location:40.880070855974395, -73.83644046611454   Sprint eNB Unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 894775. Bonus speed test with 2CA and N41 SA. Location: 40.8989406640668, -73.84564472722599   Sprint eNB Unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 894854. 40.86220687471859, -73.86242513896488
