People have been testing and abusing this camera drone model since it came out and the results are pretty damn impressive. Max altitude I've found was over 4800' AGL with the built in 16mp gimbal mounted and gyroscope stabilized camera. Not to mention built in GPS programming/tracking/flight plans, etc. Streams to your android/iOS device with live video and photo capture as well. (plugged into the transmitter and using their app/interface)

Probably will end up buying one for photography stuff once I'm working again. (they run $1000 ready to fly)

Plot a bad price, I thought they would cost more than that

Oddly enough, the drone's name and manufacturer are in the video info text.

Flying that high over a populated area is hugely irresponsible. Idiots like that are why the FAA is in the process of banning "drones".

The 'Smart' mode has it locked to 45m AGL max. I'll admit getting into anything that high is irresponsible and potentially into airspace of other commercial or private craft.

Just saying it is neat that the drone *could* go that high.

The blade 350's are supposed to be pretty bad ass. For the time being I'll stick with my x5c for $60.
