I love this, finally a real safe copter ;-)

It looks fantastic right up until half way down the page... how to connect fuselage, with elastic bands and tie wraps :-(

All for 175 bucks !

I pressed the buy now button, interested to see how this works out.

Looking like a very nice platform for quite a number of utility purposes like power-line inspections and wind turbine blade inspection where you want to get in close but if you accidentally touch it doesn't damage what you are looking at or cause you to fall out of the sky.

Actually traversing a mind shaft would be interesting.

oh and wicked fun FPV.

Yes, looking good.  I've ordered two.

Do you have other colors.

The previous models that safeflightcopter has in their web was more beautiful...

Like all things artistic, the realities of manufacturing usually take over and modify original ideas.

Just in time for the North American shopping season!

Looks pretty cool, and durability looks good. I would feel much better flying this around people or objects rather than a 20 pound octo. I'll get one and modify it a bit to my liking.

What motors are you guys using?  I saw they had suggestions.  How long does something usually take to come from RCTimer?

Very intrigued.

About time someone improved the conventional frame design for more safety and durability. Ordered mine too.
