    It flies somewhat similar to a Mavic. It hovers nice, and I believe it's the only one of its class in the $600 range, but do you think it's a copy of the Mavic/other drones?

    I don't think it's a copy but a unattractive execution of a smart/portable/4k camera drone that doesn't seem to be any better than a mavic other than price. I'd still rather spend a little more to get a mavic that I think as a first generation model is phenomenal.

    also you cant fold it with the battery so that takes up more space

    Yup you're right. On the table in the pic above they show it like it can't be folded.

    Even better still, you can play world's first Augmented Reality Vitus drone games, which Mavic can't.

    Contender yes..

    Rousey was a contender too. Fight lasted how long?

    When people actually get their hands on them we will know. Until then.. Conceptually I like it we will see how long the fight lasts.

    Yes, it is a Mavic knockoff in the same way the Mavic is a knockoff of the Dobby or GDU Byrd. There were other folding quads as well before the Mavic.
    Are you old enough to remember when Apple sued Microsoft for the "look and feel" of their windowed user interface (which they stole from Xerox?)
