Thanks for bringing us this BluSky1,

I Linked it in my Quadcopters Are Fun RTF page here: 


I don't dispute ease of use of the Phantom for ordinary people, but I do think they should start with an Hubsan X4 or UDI 818A (or similar) while they learn to fly for, safety, cost and frustration reasons.

They will save on time, money, pain (and lawsuits) in the long run.

So I've been deciding on my first quad copter, I had sold myself on IRIS over the FC40 even with the $250 price difference, I figured this was a larger investment from what seems to be a dead-end with latter.
Should this video worry me on my choice as a intro unit to a "full size" quad copter?
Thanks for any input.
