Phantom 2 Vision: The Flying Quadricopter Camera That is Actually Useful
The concept of the Phantom 2 Vision is not one of complete novelty. I will admit that. The Phantom 2 Vision by DJI, however, has something that the other quadricopter cameras do not: solid execution. (And great mobile integration.)

Alien Chestburster Macarons: Get in Me Belly (or Maybe Not)
