"I like the hexa frame. Nice design but a bit pricy for a 250 size frame. I have a nighthawk 250 with cc3d, motors, esc, and props for $160. Frame is carbon fiber and very durable."

"Not sure I'd want four high powered spinning blades that close to my face. I would not recommend this method. It's better to have a broken coptet than a slashed face. You can have anything happen they last few seconds."

"It's all up to the user... for those wanting a flying toy that takes good video with limited capability get the Phantom 3. However, if you want a true flying robot get the Solo... exactly as its name implies. It looks like it can also…"

"You have to realize how far 3dr has come since their first Quadcopter kits with apm 4 years ago. Amazing progress and at that rate DJI will soon be passed."

"It is a very impressive machine and looks a lot better than the white toy-like phantom 3. I'm not usually an early adopter I'd buy one. Very nice!!"

"I'm sure YouTube makes a certain amount of money for each video posted. How do you handle that? This is getting ridiculous. The government just wants a chunk of money."

"As they should be. Any responsible drone pilot wouldn't fly there anyway with the people density and the perceived security threat."

John commented on David Barclay's blog post Vulcan UAV Frames from CreativeFlyers
"Agree...and the arms are cut into thirds making them a lot more prone to easy damage/failure. I think a lot of people are trying to come up with alternate designs besides the standard quad. No need since the standard quad makes the most sense.…"

"I want one but it's too expensive and the battery is customized. I can build one to do the same thing for about $500 although not as pretty. Battery thing sucks though... Wonder how much a replacement cost? Also would suck to see they much $$$$…"
