I have to admit, that sure is fancy. I really like the logo work that you guys have been doing here lately. It's like a complete make over. I still enjoy the old Ardu logo's and such, but I like where the new stuff is going.

Looks good!

I like to see closer shots how the camera gets mounted.
Will there be options from 3DR to transmit video from GoPro to ground station, i.e. a Goggle?

Yes, an autopilot-controlled and auto-stabilized direct-drive gimbal will be announced soon, as well as a FPV video-streaming kit.

Chris, looks like I'll be doing business with your company. Please keep in mind a larger version of Iris for heavier load (NEX5/7) and longer flights.

Is it only tilt stabilized?  or is it tilt and roll stabilized?

I could envision a squadron of these used by volunteer pilots attached with emergency response teams. The capabilities at the price point will make this hard to overlook for grander endeavours.

This footage was shot with our new 2-axis gimbal (roll-tilt), the tilt axis can be directed. The gimbal mounts to the belly, and longer legs provide clearance.

Nice. make this an Octo or X8 version of this for heavier payload, i.e. a plug n play brushless gimbal for gopro or NEX type cameras and you've got me a buyer.

If you provide an all in one solution , preconfigured with the right brushless gimbal PIDs for predefined cameras, you will have a killer.

Am I missing something as most of the post/videos Ive seen on the next gen FC has been based on the VRBrain system with little to none anywhere on the PX4, I base my next purchases on youtube/vimeo/forum/diydrone feedback/marketing, so is the PX4 the APM3? is there a recent roadmap on hardware? Just want to make the best informed decision looking for the next option from APM2.5
