    So the announcement today looks to be for the Yuneec Breeze - a compact 'selfie drone' controlled from your mobile.

    Users of the H might recognise the Orbit, Journey and Follow Me modes from the ST-16 - with IPS and GPS this seems to be as autonomous as possible.

    Camera is built in, 4K stabilised. Less than 400g.

    Well I was looking at examples from the Dobby drone from Zero Tech which seems to be getting good revies. Its camera is better than the H's ;-) The Breeze sounds good though, I like the idea of a small selfie type drone.

    I understand that Qualcomm have produced a platform for selfie drones, which many of these new machines are based on. So it's a question of which brand you like - for their mechanical design and the controller software.

    I just went to Horizon and looked and it's $500. I'm sorry but that made me laugh.

    I mean.... is $150 more than a GoPro really that much?

    I think the right price range should be around $300. I'm just going to wait and see as I'm sure others will come out and prices will drop. The Dobby Drone is very nice and small when folded up. These would be great on a backpacking trip.

    I'm sure within a year or 2 pocket size, 4k60P autonomous pocket drones that take selfies and fetch snacks from the kitchen will be $200

    Man, may have to sell my Parrot Bebop 2 and buy this, this looks so much better, though I doubt it could get the distance of my Bebop 2. But in the video, you can see the camera move up and down, so obviously it has some sort of electronic gimbal instead of a fixed camera with a digital gimbal like the Bebop 2. Plus the video looked WAY better than the Bebop 2.

    $500 bones for something that MAY fly for 9 minutes. No Thank you!

    Yeah that might be a buzzkill. Might stop me. At least the Parrot Bebop 2 gets 20+ minutes on one charge.

    How long does it take to make a selfie? :)
    I agree it is overpriced.

    I would pull the trigger if it was 15 min and waterproof - maybe $500.

    We can put a custom battery in there and fly it longer eventually. It's a decent machine for the price. By Christmas it will be in the mid 350 range with sales and promos I bet.

    "It's a breeze" ... that is It's easy or simple. So simple a child could do it.

    Seem to be drifting (no pun intended) toward autonomy, isn't that illegal here.

    Without a waiver anyway :)
