    Mmm this one doesn't look cheap to me.
    “The Aeryon HDZoom30 payload revolutionizes aerial image capture,” said Dave Kroetsch, President and CEO of Aeryon Labs. “During the last 8 years of pioneering small UAS, and thousands of flight hours on the Aeryon sUAS platform, we have witnessed a consistent need for increasingly precise, high-resolution imagery across our diverse customer base.
    So they do listening to there customers;);););)

    I don't understand the attraction of a camera with a zoom feature on a drone...
    Fly it closer to target? Unless, of course, you are trying to creep.
    What I would like to know is the size of the sensor - has anyone found out what the spec is?

    Spend a little more time reading on the site for the camera and you will find the answer to your question. ;) For example:

    For commercial sUAS operators, the Aeryon HDZoom30 enables close inspection tasks on critical infrastructure such as power lines, flare stacks, and cellular towers, by delivering detailed, high-resolution images without bringing the aircraft into unnecessarily close proximity to the structure. For instance, using the Aeryon HDZoom30 it is possible to read the serial number on a power line insulator from a safe distance of 100 ft. (30 m).

    do they sell the camera seperately?
    I saw this at a trade fair a couple of months ago. Funnily enough the I1 camera looks to be better built.

    Just got word from them stating:
    Unfortunately, the new camera payload is only compatible with Aeryon SkyRanger products.
    Now, for those who incessantly moan and groan about how "over-priced" DJI products are, get a load of this. The lady who replied to my inquiry said:
    ... a full turnkey SkyRanger kit starts at $75,000.

    How on earth could they ever justify a $75,000 price tag? Gouge big-business (with deep pockets) and LE agencies so they can simply pass along the price to us consumers (and tax payers) with shallow pockets.
