Hey. Whatever happened to the charging dock that was being shown at the launch events? I'm not talking about the charging hub that ships with the fly-more package. I'm talking about the box that uses the charging terminals on the bottom of the batteries, presumably able to charge just by setting the Spark in the box. Any idea what happened to that product? Will we be seeing it any time soon?
I know it was rumored to have its own battery, good for some number of recharges in the field. Is that going to be a thing or is it vapor ware?

The charging dock is kind of like concept car that the auto companies display.

I don't believe that to be true in this case. They went to a lot of extra expense to put charging terminals on the bottom of these batteries. I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have done that if they didn't intend to release the product they are intended for. I'm hoping that the product they showed at the launch events was a prototype and that it just hasn't been ready for release yet.

Will it work in a car?  That would be perfect for car use.  Pull the spark out do a quick flight, bring it back and drop it into the charger.  Messing with micro connectors in a car is a pain in the rear.
