Oh why 'bored'. Just say it out loud. If you're a geek! :D

Every kid's born in the 80s dream. A controlled plane, but better. It is like controlled hummingbird.

 

As for the video. Prices are, wow. Over 1000 pounds.

The second one is quite good and looks like it has a pretty good range. The 6 propellers are great also as mentioned.

Third plane like one. It looks very dangerous when starting. You can easily hit your head if not careful. Not actually a drone by today's definition. Like the tablet. 15 years ago tablet was used for graphics. Now nobody knows what is it for... Years ago drone was always a military crewless plane. Now it is rather a hummingbird.

And the flying dog. Just have no words :D Come one Dronie, we'll go for a walk... Just, no...

 

One very important thing is missing, though I know it is rather a showcase than proper review. The last one uses GoPro so you know the quality of the video or photo. But the rest? I guess 1080p and +30fps but it is important information especially if the camera is impossible to change.

 

It was fun to watch :)

Tony has just done a video on "best camera, best video cam best drone".

The original phantom drone can be had at a great price second hand.  But 2nd hand ??? Buyer beware.  Check for flak damage and  signs of rough landings...

Buying used things that are exposed to any stressful situations is always a jeopardy.

 

For me tablets and drones are totally useless and have no place in my life at all. So there is no way at this point I could buy any of them used or new. I like the drone video effects but as it becomes more and more common it become so pointless.

Maybe that's just me but GoPro videos are still amazing and fun to watch. I like games, I grew up playing, so maybe that's why this first person point of view on the screen is so natural. But this 'fly up/fly down' shot is getting ridiculous. You're watching news and see that amazing info.

 

A new supermarket is open (camera fly up for wide shot of new supermarket...).

Next news.

(camera fly down from the stratosphere dramatically) Last night two rats attacked frightened taxi driver.

 

You get the idea ;)

It was ok when you saw that shot once in a while. But when you see that at every single occasion. It's like reusing of stunts by M. Bay.
