Just reading some reviews of it, and even some of the real geeky people who are in RC helicopters and the like are surprised by its build quality and stability for the price

I'm guessing they're using the phone/tablet as a hotspot - not attaching to a WiFi in McDonalds

No, it'll work like any other WiFi connection and like most WiFi gadget, the gadget will act as the WiFi hotspot and phone/app will connect to that. Be interesting to see what the range is like, especially outdoors, though (i suspect it'll be alright but nothing brilliant as i imagine the transmit power is pretty low).

Still, it's pretty cool Get some pics/vids up when you get it!

I had a look a while ago at other quadcopters, Droidworx/Xaircraft; but it starts getting seriously expensive very quickly once you start adding different modules (autopilot etc) and camera cage mounts etc.

so how do you do it with them? obviously this one having a camera means you are going to take it different places, unlike a plane which you would just fly on a big open field with nothing around

CEO has the original, flys it around his house very cool and quite easy to fly.

If had a spare 250 laying about I would have one too, good fun.
