    Can your drone haul up a large DSLR camera? Can your drone stay in the air for hours? Can your drone be flown in places like National Parks? KAP rigs can be had for around $200 less the camera.

    That's weird, though my mom did say, a drone is like a modern day kite. It's kinda true (without the string), controller is like holding the string, and guiding the flying object.

    No, neither can that one.

    Still wouldn't buy it if it was $50 bucks.

    Heck even if it could haul a massive DSLR into the clouds, then what? How the blazes are you going to release that shutter? That's what I thought.
    Strings break and I stand by my assertion that thing is just silly.

    I hope the $8,000.00 price on the Fotokite is a mistake.
