Yup, surprised Casey's handlers didn't make sure of that, his video is totally soft.


Theirs is also soft... I assume for the same reason

Here are some pictures straight out of the camera comparing the Karma to the P4. I gotta say they look quite similar, although the P4 gets the edge (ignore the color and brightness differences, these are due to different exposure settings and could be equalized easily).

Also, Casey put out a new video today, showing the camera to be far inferior to the P4... then he posted an update on twitter saying that he didn't focus right ::)...

Basically, the camera is great. Just how great remains to be seen until there are thousands of them flying along with the GoPro.

Mavic is not the same quality but i agree on the convenience is key and 28% More flight time*

Anyway to find the owner of a drone? Someone flew a Phantom through an open window of my friend's apartment in Brooklyn. Literally he walked in and there was a drone sitting on the floor of the living room.  ???

Only if there's an FAA ID on it (check in the battery compartment), and only if you're law enforcement.

I love how they came up with such an exact amount of what the maximum damage your drone can cause... they clearly don't know me...
