I'd love to be one of them because that would mean I FINALLY have one.  ;)

60 minutes has an episode of the future of combat drones.. now

And I have to believe what they are showing is just the iceberg tip of where they are now.

6 awesome drones from CES 2017

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rt0Yps9DNkA

A couple of new drones have my interest, but the one that I'm scratching my head on is that PowerEgg Drone. It's way too big to be anything practical for those that travel a lot. I'm sure most people will not want to lug around something so big and cumbersome. Give me that drone that clocks in at 75mph though!

DJi Phantom 4 Pro+ vs. Inspire Pro vs. Mavic Pro in 4K

I like Casey's graph at the end in breaking down how each Drone stacks up to the other. It's easy to follow and useful information in determining which drone is best per your requirements.

DJi SPARK vs DJi Mavic!! EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THIS TINY DRONE

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


A lot of DJI Spark video reviews have been flooding YouTube today. This is a pre-release Prototype and isn't the final version. The one downside is that this only shoots in 1080p. It's not a deal breaker for me. It just would be nice to have a 4k option. There is no dedicated controller for the prototype, so we don't get to see how it handles. Casey's review really isn't one that I would base my money on. There are plenty others out there giving it a better test in what it can and can't do. I'm still watching various reviews. When I find one that showcases this better, I'll post. But just based on what I've seen so far, I'm very encourage and at a mere $500, I can and most likely see myself buying my first drone when this finally drops. It's insane that the body of this drone is smaller than a smartphone....especially given the quality build and parts associated with this. Usually the smaller drones (which there are plenty of) are cheap and not worth the price you pay for it.

$500 Drone vs $3000 Drone - DJI Spark vs Inspire 1

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPY7dIz0GBI

Here's the other side of Casey's video with Marques Brownlee own review.

I did a little more research. The Spark with no controller is $500, the Spark with controller is $700. That's still a pretty good deal.
