    The flight time on #5 is unmatched although I've heard its a little hard to control it. I want it though. Any word on preorders?

    I was gradually scrolling through and was really enjoying been able to compare each platform... I was wondering if it needed specs such as flightime, camera resolution etc until I saw the "parrot drone" - very funny

    However I think for the price quoted you should have a African Grey that has speech..

    Honestly I'm thinking the DJI S900 + GH4 might be the best combo. I am a commercial photographer breaking into video, I shoot with stills with Nikon D810s or medium format digital backs and video with d810s and sometimes RED. The inspire camera is DECENT but in my opinion after reviewing lots and lots of footage and just getting one of my own yesterday, it's definitely not quite up to par with DSLR video. Maybe cutting some of the footage in with it will pass with some good color grading. I like that they fixed the wide angle distortion issue but the dynamic range still kinda sucks and the video seems pretty soft when flying over things with texture. I also wish there was a way to control focus if you wanted to fly closer to objects in the foreground. I haven't flown my Inspire enough, I am still pretty happy with it. I love all the technology its got but I wish the camera was just a little bit better!
