The Dobby is a tiny drone with big ambitions

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67GVAzCHa64

With the onslaught of 4K Pocket drones, the consumer is only going to benefit in a big way. More competition drives the price way down. Double-win! As for this one, I like what I'm seeing. The only negative for me is that you can only get 10 minutes of flight time. Sure, I could by more batteries, but I find that to be a workaround for a problem that shouldn't really exist.

Wow, 10 minutes.

I see battery life as a huge problem with today's electronics. Once we get past the huge limitations and concentrate on the actual product, I can entertain the purchase of said technologies.

They Call It The Hover Camera...

Looks interesting, but I don't think this is something I'd want to invest in.

$550 FOLDABLE 4K NOTEBOOK DRONE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzDLVx-5HSM

Casey goes a little deeper with his review than the previous post. Whatever Drone I get, it has to be able to reach a certain elevation as well as distance since what I have in mind for projects include aerial shots. This doesn't look like it could travel a city block.

You've Never Seen A Drone Like This...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a10ivcSbX14

I posted a review of the Doby a few post back and I'm surprised that it was never mentioned before, but I just noticed that there is no Gimble. That makes this a non-starter for me. Without a Gimble, there is no point in owning this drone. The purpose and a big purpose for me is to be able to shoot Top-Down video along with all the other standard shots.

GoPro recalls Karma drones due to power problems

This is not good. Brand New product and already you have a major issue warranting recalls. Not sure how this got pass quality control. Seems like this would be at the top of the list of what to look out for during its testing phase.

I do believe drones will get tinier as the tech improves...thus proving to be a huge security risk. Think about all the illicit things people will use them for to spy on others. Of course, the motorize sound coming off the drone will give itself away. But that too will get to the point one day where the sound problem will be solved.

Did you see "Eye In The Sky?"  Dude uses a drone the size of a fly.  And we already got tiny cameras in our cars, the rearview cams, you know?  The real issue will be the lev-tech and the battery tech.  I can see the devices becoming energy-efficient enough to run off a watch battery.  Shouldn't take much lift for those things to take off.

Yeah, those are purposely used as Click Bait. I would say about 95% of YouTubers do that for the intent of getting as many clicks as possible and if they have a partnership with YouTube, that means $$$$$$$$$ if they reach a certain number of page views.

I suspect we will see a major increase in Drone fails after this Christmas
