I will not try to write everything down in one sitting so this will probably be an ongoing blog (at least a few posts).
As I posted on another thread, I'll quote here...
"FWIW, I have not been a part of the AirDroids team since April of 2014 (less than a month after receiving the KS funds and before spending a dime of it). I cannot discuss much as per the confidential separation agreement I signed, but I have been completely out of the loop since then. I have no access to any customer service channels or emails. Needless to say, I would have tried/liked to do things differently.
I AM a recipient of one of the units and it was already bound to the included transmitter (As RTF as I could have expected). I did change the default mode to stabilize (I don't think alt hold should be the default setting) and it left the ground a few feet without any problems (I haven't had a chance to take it outside yet). The redesigned landing gear leave something to be desired for sure (I am considering designing some 3D printed replacements to post on Thingiverse). I'm interested in the tail boom modification that was discussed here to see if it's necessary.
Provided I don't receive an onslaught of negativity here from backers or DIYdroners, I will continue to have an open discussion and review the product as an informed consumer."
