    This is "news" to me... and I thought I'd share.

    If you happened to be one of the people who watched Shark Tank on 10-23-15, you saw a rare occasion when all 5 Sharks struck a deal with xCraft.

    I ordered a PhoneDrone soon after. And a day after I placed my order, I received an email question (as all who made orders did) asking some basic info about my background and why I was interested in ordering a drone. I sent them the info (long story) and I got a personal reply back from the founder, President and CEO J.D. Claridge (interesting guy I might advise too.) He advised I was the only one he had ever heard of who started flying lessons at age 12...

    The PhoneDrone was originally scheduled to be released Fall 2016 but there is a slight delay. xCraft will be releasing the PhoneDrone at CES in Las Vegas the first week of January and I was advised that I was the 43rd person to place an early order, mine should be here very soon.

    Shoot, I might just buy a round trip ticket to Las Vegas and check out the PhoneDrone at CES myself and escape this wicked cold Texas weather. It was 72 degrees here today. I had to wear gloves, a face mask and a full length parka.

    I'm going to drop my old iPhone 5S into it and keep the iPhone 7 in my pocket. I doubt I'd ever be that trusting to actually but my active cell phone in it.

    This is one of the reasons I got the Yuneec drone over DJI, So I don't have to use my phone which the battery wouldn't last long. Looking forward to how it works for you. When do you expect to receive it?

    Mid January, but I will be out of the country when it arrives. Hope to try it in late February when I get back.

    Actually, the iPad Mini 4 battery lasts longer on the DJI Controller, than my ST16 battery for my H !
