    Shot with a Mavic Pro, I stumbled across what appears to be a Red Tailed Hawk

    mikedt 你好

    I've seen too many crashes, which puts me off spending a lot of money on a Chinese drone. Like flying them can be an expensive bobby, especially things like DJI.

    Yea, but DJI has the absolute best hardware, and software. The builtin protections, and smart flight modes make this practically crash proof, well, unless you are a total idiot.

    Can it follow you around? Ive seen some of those little Chinese drones do that. Keyword: Little.

    Do they make a 'total idiot' model? I'd need that one. ;)

    Have you seen the drone competitions? Now that's some crazy flying. It would be a great deal of fun if you had endless dollars to throw at it. Flying in and out and around old abandoned warehouses and such against the clock and other drones would have to be a real rush.

    Yea, it has a ton of smart flight modes, as do the big professional DJI drones.
    Yes, it's why I went with the more expensive one. You know, the ones that practically flies for me, and doesn't let me lose it, haha
    The cheap ones are SO hard to fly. Everyone says to start with those so you get real good, and you dont lose much money if you crash. I went with the one I would actually enjoy flying, haha.
    The 499 DJI spark is awesome looking, fits in palm of hand.
    The racing ones are *insane*, and cool as hell to watch videos off. Mine is a quad-copter, and in the camera drone class. I mean, it does just over 40mph. But those stunt/racing ones can do 100mph I think.
