NOTE at the 2015 NAB show. 3DR released their new SOLO quad rendering the iris+ a think of history. I had already finished the unbox. and here it is with couple added comments on account of the SOLO.
American company 3D Robotics have been making a number of APM based quads for a while, and the IRIS+ is (was) the latest of them.
There is a lot of interesting aspects about the IRIS+ its inexpensive for a RTF quad with optional video capabilities, but its also a bit like most "american made" things competing with a more polished high end chinese product. the IRIS+ look rougher in terms of the fit & finish, but that should not affect its flying.
