I've been pondering it for some time. Last week I finally broke down and bought a drone. A DJI Phantom Multirotor System. It arrived today and Stensen did most of the assembling, which really was not that much. I did the manual reading and very light instructions reading on learning how to fly.
After the battery was charged, I decided to take it for a spin. With a a GoPro of course!
The video below is the very first flight of the new toy. I was surprise at how easily I learned to fly it. The second video below is a 6 second video showing the drone ascend to almost 200 feet.
