looks pretty cool, more expensive than the lilly and more similar to the dji phantom prices. Not waterproof but you can put your own gopro on it, replaceable batteries and with a proper gimbal. Also pre-order.
DJI is cheaper than lily at launch though by quite a lot. Leaves enough for a gopro or one of the cheaper equivs if you prefer.
Of course the current DJI models you need to learn to fly and point. You could get into FPV which is another ballgame so we won't go there, although it is brilliant.
Gopro will probably be doing this too I would think, however it will be mega bucks as with everything they make.
Personally I'd say a phantom and sjcam 5000 plus is way to go if you want something now and want to learn to fly them. Failing that maybe get the lily now at a good price or see what else comes. No way they will sell for 1000 bucks, that is fairy land so I wouldn't worry.
