Good call Greg, and all the "kinks" are still not ironed out !Tough call. Back in the late 60s or early 70s if I had waited for that Dick Tracy screen to come out I would have waited 20 years minimum for a good one. I would probably wait but with all the promise from CES 2017 I would still wait at least 6-9 months for them to work the kinks out of the first runs so your realistically looking at waiting another year. Its your call.
This ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^I just bought H pro realsense pro pack. It was delivered Thursday. I am a happy camper. If you keep waiting for the latest and greatest you will never own or enjoy anything. Just look at Apple. Everybody keeps waiting for the next iPhone to come out..just to own the latest. In the electronic computer world the technology is already old when you order the product. Just buy it and enjoy it. Then upgrade several years down the road. Buy it and have fun....
Not I ! it's all Yuneec's fault, and you are correct, the perfect drone will never arrive ! feeed meeee !If I wanted to own a business, and I do, I would develop a business plan that addressed what it needed to do, the customers it needed to target, and establish exactly the equipment necessary to get it done. From there I would select the equipment most capable and go to work.
If you want to starve to death, keep waiting for the next latest and greatest product design, or the one that's without any consumer complaints. There will never be the perfect Multirotor because there are very few users that understand their equipment as well as they should. Many product complaints are due to user failures.

Let me know if your a happy camper after you fly ! I hope you got one with all the juice squeezed out of the lemon my friend !Honestly if your facing the decision whether or not to buy something because of when a fictitious product is going to be released, you'll be forever in buyers remorse no matter when you buy.
That being said I'm in total alignment with what @Tuna said above. Buy the drone, you won't regret it. I purchased mine yesterday after months of research and looking forward to getting her in the air today.
Now that's what i am talking about Pat, I am learning towards a ebee fixed wing for my farm mapping surveillance, more steady and reliable and for sure Pro grade, and stick to my P4/P3/P2 with Go Pro for real estate and building structure shots, Let me know if you find a good one, I have a few in mind my friend !If I was seeking a truly "professional" drone it would not have a 'toy" flight controller driving it. The FC would be extremely versatile, have full user code review and alteration capability, and be easily utilized for different size and weight aircraft. The FC would permit incorporation of equipment from different manufacturers without the need to buy expensive adaptation equipment from the primary FC manufacturer. The FC manufacturer would have to provide an extremely comprehensive documentation package to enable users to perform accurate and effective adaptations.
There's currently only a couple of those out there. Neither Yuneec or DJI is among them.
