All the bits look familiar and it even comes with its own monitor. I’m sure its Ardupilot or PX4 inside so should be suitable for a little bit of hacking.
If you are needing a simple quad for some experiments you would spend close to the Up airs $369.99 just in parts. Add to that the time to put it together.
Is it pointless to build your own GPS 30cm class multirotor now?
If you are in business and it is APM or PX4 based and will support waypoints would it not make sense to put a Parrot Sequoia under one of these rather than a more expensive platform?
A few short years ago the sub $1000 drone was a dream, then $500 became a tipping point. Now sub $200 capable GPS equipped RPA seem very likely to become a thing.
Just look at the autopilot when looking for a cheap quad if its Ardupilot or PX4, you can do everything the expensive ones can for less.
