What is that blue belt? A carrying handle??

(No I don't fly these things. No rotor models of any kind are allowed at our field)

If it is related to 3D Robotics, who has a new manufacturing plant in Baja, Otay, TJ.......the quad shown is not yet posted on their web site......so, I'm clue-less.....although, it is apparent that some kind of Go-Pro Hero is mounted and all the motors are brushless......and that model shown is much more attractive and stream-lined than the 3D Robotics I've seen in person......having moved to TJ should help keep the cost of production down too!

Looks like the top of a DJI Phantom to me, but I'm not flying those either. Yet. OK. You got a new club badge holder! ?

Ok. You're a rep for them? Googled them and seems they produce some autonomous electronics? Not being deep into the uas world yet, their site was a little vague for me. I didn't see what their product does that a lot of quads and things do already.

Ok, I'm loving this, but it is not related to me.

Yes, it is a DJI Phantom (version 2, means nothing)

and Yes, it is a 3D Robotics Neck strap...


So.... what can those two possibly have in common..... now?

Hmmmm, Maybe you can put the strap around your neck, and attach it to the Quad, and it will lift you off the ground to do some sight seeing LOL

DJI has bought out 3D Robotics? Hard to imagine it being the opposite way around, DJI being much bigger.

Taking out the competition so they can keep their prices up?

Did Colin Guinn and Chris Anderson put their heads together with something......I remember when Anderson rounded up $30 million to set up an alliance (capital venture) with several others in the industry in 2013......?

The DJI Phantom (or some new name) will have a new whiz-bang fancy computer on board.

I'm still sniffen around but loosing the scent pretty fast.....It would not be that surprising to me if (now that 3D Robotics) has firmly planted it's R & D feet on the west coast....and DJI is now DJI North America (Texas), something would be brewing.....running out of guesses though!
