Even though I have the complete photo, out of respect to 3DR, I have cropped it!

3DRobotics is using 2001 Space Odyssey themed video to announce the release of it’s new UAV, Quadcopter on coming Monday. Video (see below) is fun to watch and makes one wanting to see the real thing. (Too bad for me, I visit Berkeley marina too often and seen the beast on more than on occasion). I can’t wait till Monday to learn about the price and other things such as cameras and accessories.

DJI also announced their Phantom 3 in two models, Advanced and Pro, costing $1000 and $1260 respectively. But that is for another post, when DJI becomes a bit more open 🙂

I am a 3DR fan and thankful to them for the opensource work they are doing. PixHawk has become my most studied computer, lately and there is much more to learn. Let me say I love mapping.
