While looking for something else I came across this:

I didn't have time to watch the movie yet, but what I saw reminded me a lot of these videos:

Quadrocopter Ball Juggling, ETH Zurich

I'll check those or later. They look pretty cool!

My father is having a pretty rough time lately so I decided to buy him a quad to help cheer him up.  I ended up getting such an awesome price on it that I ended up getting one for myself as well. Needless to say I'm a bit excited for them to come in and been watching videos as a result.

I sure hope this will cheer him up, I have seen some inexpensive ones that has preprogramed sequence for flip, made from China.  Quite interesting and fun to fly if I may say so.

The one I got him is not a really good high quality one but it has great reviews for the price.  It's the Syma X5c in case anyone is curious.

I have the same.

Buy lots of spare parts too.

Very good and tough, but needs really calm conditions, like early in the morning.
anything above the gentlest fof breezes will move it about a lot, quickly. You can fight a slightly strong wind but it will be sideways all the time and difficult to point to where you want to.

His property is surrounded by trees so wind isn't usually a problem for him.   Last month they had a visiting dog tree a black bear in their yard.  They took pictures of the bear with a zoom lense for obvious reasons but I think it would be neat to have a quad with a camera handy for that kind of thing in the future.

Hoping your dad feels better very soon and has a blast flying his copter.

I've had this quad for some time now and I really do enjoy flying it.  It is a fantastic entry level quad and I'd recommend it to anyone. It is actually so lightweight that I have found it nearmy impossible to damage.  It simply does not build up enough kinetic energy to cause damage on impact.  Despite the warning above, I have yet to use any of the spare parts it came with even though it has been banged around a lot.

That having been said, I have just found a great deal on a DJI Phantom 2 Vision that I couldn't pass up.  In fact, the deal is so good I have to wonder if it is a fake or stolen and I'm putting a lot of faith in the PayPal protection system on this one!

I hear that DJI models are much better to fly and film with and this one also has FPV, which I think will help a lot to see which way the thing is going if nothing else.  :D

Looks like the deal was not legitimate.  I got the following email from eBay last night:

I kind of expected this when I bought what was supposed to be a $700 drone for $40.  :P

Still, I have 45 (44 now) days worth of Paypal protection to see what, if anything shows up.  :D

I also got this message when I logged into eBay:

Quote
We had to remove this listing from the site and you're not required to complete the transaction. If you've already sent payment, the sale should process as normal and you don't have anything to worry about. If you have any questions about delivery, please check tracking or contact your seller. If you run into any trouble along the way eBay is here to help. Please visit the Resolution Centre to help resolve any problems you may encounter.

I always send payment when I buy something, so of course it was sent immediately.  If it wasn't for the line I've bolded, I would have cancelled the order as soon as I read the message.
