The question is, how long can it stay in flight? 3 minute? 2 hours? If it can actually last more than ten minutes I'll be surprised, if it can last more than thirty I'd consider buying one.

"The video feed is streamed over WiFi to an iOS device running the remote control app."

If one were to read the article, you'd easily figure out that, yes, it is only for Apple. But, that's simple reading and processing that information, and from your comment, I can clearly see you do not have this ability.

And because all the fanbois will not like this I'll say this: I've never owned an apple product, and probably never will. But this unrelenting hate for anything, be it good or bad, is really out of hand.

I concur, besides, they are really limiting there mark share by forcing people to use one type of product, why can't we control it from our PCs? If it runs over WiFi there no reason it can't be routed to a computer or laptop.

If these have fair battery life and signal strength, with the cameras on these, they may be good for paparazzi.

I also would like to see Android support. My Evo's 4.3" screen would really be sweet with that video stream.

I have nothing against the iPhone but PLEASE support Android. With 200,000 new Android devices activated each day there are a lot of devices out there that could attach to your Drone.
