25 minutes flight time is great. And with four rotors and a weight of 2 lbs 8 ounces, it should be fairly stable, in winds too. In addition to DJI, Walkera and Parrot offer good products, but DJI looks the best. The Phantom 1 has the advantage of using a GoPro camera which can be detached and used for other purposes whereas the Phantom 2 camera is built in. If they added night vision and an infrared light, it could complement home security; not just take great travel video and pictures.

What of racing drones for professional and amateur enthusiast? I am planning to purchase a drone for my photography and personal pleasures; along with a hexapod for my creepy crawly needs.

Nothing new. As someone who also flies RC plane, we had been mounting cameras on them for quite some time.
