That's insane - geo fencing? What about range and transmission quality? Any bugs and glitches

Yes, geo fencing allows the user to define a box that the drone will not fly out of, so no possible flyaways, I got 1050 meters today in range with 0 signal loss or video lag. No bugs/glitches with the Android version, I'm using a Galaxy S8+, 1130 nits display, brighter than the HB Crystal Sky, flew solid 23 minutes no heat or overload issues, App is lightweight and very user friendly.

You're selling it man! I'm considering many options at the moment.

Also no mandatory NFZ's, you can fly anywhere, and as we all know within our governments regulations FAA/CA, but the drone will never stop you as of yet.

So no landing itself in a lake because there use to be an airport 4 miles away 30 years ago - thats encouraging.

Nice, subscribed.  I am intrigued by the simplicity of this drone.  I really dislike the SD card holder though.

$699 USD, 16GB card, 1 Battery, 1 USBA>USB Type C cable, 8 props. From 10% battery to full takes 135 minutes BUT it charges from any 5V-2/3 Amp Phone Charger, will also charge from a typical car power port with a phone charger adapter.

The SD card is a lot easier to get out than the MA. Remove the battery, slide the holder back, lift the card out.

Yeah, agree its probably easier to remove then the Air, but if that tiny metal clip breaks off and gets lost... your up a creek.  Video looks really good.

Yeah, I actually had to buy a pair of tweezers just to remove my SD card from the drone - terrible design!

Yup, Fully Auto, no post edit on the color ect... just clips and transitions, so it is original, this thing will also shoot HDR video on the fly, 21MP stills 4:3 format JPEG/RAW

It needs a set of ND filters, Polar Pro is in the process of making them now that it has been released.

Thanks, No it is the new Anafi ;-) Notice the lossless zoom in 3 scenes.

Nice video with an appropriate music. Of course also good camera guidance.   

Yes, there is a nice camera on the little French beauty.

Ah ok.
I have not encountered that abbreviation before
That 'lossless' part is a bit like marketing.
They just use a smaller portion of the sensor to increase the focal multiplier.
But that is not the same as lossless.
The lens is fixed so there is some loss in quality (since you are effectively using a smaller portion of the resolution of the lens itself).
It is better than digital zoom 'old style' but definitely not lossless.
My Panasonic videocam also has this 'boost' to increase the zoom range 'lossless' (increasing from 10x zoom to about 20x) but you do notice a degradation in sharpness.

Agreed but is very handy to have especially filming wildlife, the zoom used in the video was in 4K so it only allows 1.4x, if filming in 1080p it will do 2.8x. Another nice feature is never any prop shadows even in full on Sports Mode due to design.

Yes, it is better than nothing.
But it is still some kind of a marketing lie that it is lossless.
I sometimes use it myself with my videocamera when the action is simply too far away.
