Is it this one? " Xiaomi Mi Drone release date and price. We're not sure on a specific release date yet but Xiaomi has confirmed that there will be two models of the Mi Drone. One which is just 1080p for 2,499 Yen ($380/£259) while the 4K model is 2,999 Yen ($456/£310)"

Nope and if history has shown anything with concept quads if the Xiaomi is ever released it will be more expensive than you show there but even based on those prices the UP-Air is cheaper.
Will it do the laundry at this price?
Ahh, can peep into neighbours window! I always wondered how she looks coming out of the shower
I do like the pricing but there's soooo much to go wrong with these types of things that some decent support is vital. I'd rather pay extra and know I've a chance of resurrecting it if there's a problem rather than flying a couple of times and chucking it away.

There's 2 schools of thought really, the view you state and the ah well won't be the end of the world if I stuff it into a tree... Pay 1200 quid for a Yuneec and you're unlikely to feel that way....or consider this entry level before you splash out on something more expensive.
I'd rather wait for xiaomi to release, can't afford dji Phantom 3 unless price goes down to £250-300

I would cry if I stuffed this into a tree and my wife would belt me round the back of the head.

I built my own from scratch for around this price. Relatively easy to do, very satisfying and a great way to get your head around how they work and how you would repair it when (not if!) you crash it. The best part was when I crashed it for the first time, assessed the damage and realised replacement parts were going to cost all of £3. You're more likely to break a cheap plastic part than the electronics inside and despite the different brands there are lots of common parts that are easy to find (mine uses the same frame as a Phantom).

Sorry, that was the P2 but the P3 can be had for £332 delivered:

Is the P3 worth the extra £100 over this one or not?

What are the key model differences?
Dji are famous making drones and they are successful and their gps are too good
Not in the same league as posted here but if you want to try out cheap starter fpv this is not bad for the price and spares are cheap too. I have crashed it a few times and lost and found it once, it survived crashing in a field and being licked to death by sheep. Only downside is fpv range is about 75m.

In theory I don't see why not as long as the weight is low enough dont forget 2mp in video terms is 1080p, whilst it's no go pro it's not terrible. This chap has done quite a few mods on it, but I keep mine fairly stock.

You should look at the hubsan h501s not as good but a good starter drone for this type of thing.

It's a bit of a lottery but I did have to pay customs charges on mine, think it was about 20 quid. Had lots of stuff from China in the past and this was the first time I've had to pay
and was that the upair one that you got ? if so how long was shipping and did you pay the higher shipping option . thanks again

I think they are chalk and cheese, I love my 501 and my 502 but they don't have a gimbal so videos are not as good. My 501 was only £180 from Banggood Spain so no import tax and it was cheaper.
