Seems like this would be a great option for boat usage.

Really very tempting!!!

This makes me question my obsession with collective pitch copters. I might just have to pull the trigger

I keep wondering how water resistant these quads are. Does anybody here know?

That thing is next level compared to the Go Pro Karma. I will be picking one up for next season.

Haha. Same here. Just preordered the Mavic. The video that Casey Neistat put up yesterday sold me on it.

Also DJI (and a couple others) offer PayPal Credit for payment aka you have 6 months to pay for it. I was going to wait until Christmas but I'll just pay for it then. ha

Phantom 4 is on ebay. I love it, but the Mavic is going to be so much easier for hiking, camping, airports, and boating.

I used to dabble with collective pitch choppers and still play with RC cars and trucks. The drone thing is an entirely different animal. You only use about 2% of your collective pitch skills. My 8 year old can fly my Phantom 4 well enough for taking great photos. Waterproofing would be useless unless you want to fly in the rain. I have flown my Phantom 4 for over 30 hours since i bought it, probably 90% of that over water and have never been slightly concerned with crashing.

thanks Alan
I know that drones are very stable. I guess I'm thinking to much.

Massdrop just got a deal on the pre-orders and extra $100 bucks if you were going to get one anyways...

Thing to remember about Massdrop is that they aren't an authorized reseller so warranty goes out the window!
