Although a little short in the camera department this new product offers much that few others do, including open access to the flight control system. To see someone that recognizes that users have different needs and provide them the ability to tailor their system to fit their needs is a breath of fresh air. Doing so at this price point is especially surprising for a U.S. made product. Let's hope he achieves a level of success that provides for more development and expansion of platforms and features. This could be a birth of a product line similar to what 3DR had originally delivered. Go Teal-Go!

Yes, good luck to them. It's easy to dismiss the new kids on the block because the market leader is so dominant. But I remember Apple starting up and all Windows users laughing at them. Autel are showing that it can be done in this sector - especially with so many disenchanted DJI owners looking around.

I think the Teal is designed and assembled in the US - but manufactured in the same old place. That's still a leap forward.

Perhaps similar to KDE where parts are manufactured overseas by reputable vendors to manufacturer design specs and held to design standards by the marketing company. You want super reliable, high performance motors and ESC’s for heavy lifters you go to KDE.

BTW, there are Pixhawk and PX4 FC’s made completely in the U.S. but not for retail purchasers. They are pretty much under the control of the proprietary builder group.
