Sure looks like one. Good eye!

What I am confused about is why are you using 'UAV' as the tagline of the 3DR ?  Is there a move to using that over 'Drone'?   Shouldn't it be 'drone technology' tag line?

The suspense is killing me! I wonder if they mean ArduCopter 3.0?

a gimbal maybe?

Opps, didn't realize UAV had been in the tagline for a long time.

I realize they are one and the same technically.. however the word drone as posted in many threads on here has a bad rap.  Personally I never say the word 'drone' to anyone I talk with... just problematic in general.

I say drone all the time.. love that word. If people don't get it, they just don't get it. We have the media to thank for the negative connotation. More people look at me with a blank stare when I say UAV or UAS.

I prefer to call them flying robots!

@Joseph, Yeah I refer to them as Flying Robots when I'm talking to people who are inexperienced but definitely still use "Drone" when I'm speaking to someone who is knowledgeable in Robotics or Aviation.
