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

When do we get the Area 51 flying drone that we can use to buzz Josh in Pahrump?

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?

    • Interesting, T-Mobile is demolishing a Sprint B25-only site that even Sprint wasn't using anymore. Sprint moved from that pole to a former Clearwire site on a nearby much taller mast but never demolished this original site. Up through 2021, there was still power to this site. Some time during COVID, the lights on the RRUs were no longer lit.  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/ENR24-01067/Kirkland Streetview 
    • I noticed that on my Boost line. I ended up mapping some 2G on Cellmapper because of that lol. Looked like it would connect to T-Mobile 2G for a bit and then disconnect and show no signal. Thankfully it's back up and running.
    • Outside expert explanations of AT&T outage: https://www.lightreading.com/mobile-core/at-t-s-outage-twists-up-its-mwc-story
    • Service just restored in Columbus Ohio on AT&T network.  They seemed to do it in the following order: business (done early) then 5g hours later then ADSL and 4g about 4 hours after business. Then texting and wifi calling that was not setup before. At one point they were trying to route calls on T-Mobile 2g, but that failed.
    • Nationwide AT&T outage occurring right now affecting all of their brands, MVNOs, and even FirstNet. Although this kind of outage is rare, I bet Verizon and T-Mobile are both gonna try to use this to pull First Responders to their network or at least consider them for backup services. https://www.theverge.com/2024/2/22/24079910/att-network-outage-sos-mode
