    This looks like one of the best camera drones I have seen so far. the design seems very well thought out.

    I will be quick to order a Lily Camera when they design a waterproof battery compartment so I can bring multiple batteries for a day windsurfing on the lake. Until then I can not imagine using it for 20 minutes and then leaving it locked up in my vehicle for the rest of the afternoon sailing session.
