"Just backed for two boxes! Good luck with your kickstarter campaign. It is not as cool as the 1M$+ recent drone kickstarts, but it has a lot more chances of delivering, and safety is important to our hobby."

"@Chris I am totally with you. The batteries we use in our flying equipment right now were not designed to be discharged so fast. Just think how quickly they get "old", compared with cell phone or notebook batteries. I know from hardcore 3D…"
