Opening opening the box I noticed that everything was very well packed and well laid out. I really liked all the nice touches the came with the kit, from the wrench's, to the extra prop collets.

I made a couple of videos. Overall my impressions are very good. Out of the box I would say that it performs better than a phantom 2. I took a couple video's today with my cell so you'll have to excuse the video. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask

To help everyone out here. There are two major GPS bands:

L1: 1575MHz

L2: 1227MHz

Most GPS receivers only use the L1 band. 

NEO-6M (Reference pg 6)

LEA-6H (Reference pg 6)

While the gps could potientally be susceptable at that frequency (1227MHz) it more likely is some emi bleed over and not the actual operating frequency. Many people use high power transmitters and some are not great at sticking to the specific frequency. This is why there are many filters out there for the 1200/1300MHz band. Some are because of harmonics though. 1200x2=2400MHz which is not so great for 2.4 stuff.

Ok.. what does one do with the SD card that came in the box ?? do I have to open her up and put in Pixhawk ?

Not sure if you figured it out yet, but that is most likely just a shell that came with the micro and not used with the Iris.  The micro sd should already be placed inside your Iris.
