Default microdrone complete "A STEAL AT $56340?"

are they cheaper by the dozen? who was it that needed 30? detroitdr? well there is one good thing. it says prices are subject to change without notice! actually drone + transmitter only $23,850 + tax oh I forgot if you dont purchase the base unit you will need charger and battery for an additional $1,700. DFY sticks it to you $8,500 for GPS add on. but These
guys stick it to you from the getgo. but you can have GPS for $2,720 and I bet you in order to use it you will have to plug it into their BASE 1 and that is only $18,300. Damn Government Contractors!!!! [>:][:@]

Hey Everyone

now that i have had time to think about microdrones i just want everyone to know at first I was truly dissappointed at the high cost and how it will inhibit me from having one. I didnt mean to be so sarcastic when I started the thread. Well ok now I'm lying again I really was pissed but now that i have had time to think about it. I want to say Im sorry for the attitude. I'm sure that there are people that wont bat an eye at the price
and that is good for them because it really is a badass machine. If one lands in my backyard I might just have to hang on to butit for a while[:-]
but i could buy an dfy5 ti pro for the price of the battery and charger!

I wouldnt take that price too seriously, everything here in Oz is subject to some pretty hefty markups, wait until they announce a price in europe, it will probably still be expensive, but no where near the Ozzy price!
I regularly import stuff from American retailers e-shops and save hundreds of dollars on stuff advertised on the net here, I don't think they quite get it.
http://www.microdrones.com/index.html is where I would go for a more realistic price, when they announce it
