    "The IRIS is one tough quadcopter. I landed it hard the first day and nothing broke at all. The main reason I bought the IRIS is the ability to hack into the programming and customize the code. You can get in there and change things in all sorts of different ways. Some quads won't let you do that, but IRIS makes it pretty easy."

    "DJI is famous for having left a bug in their code that hackers have already jailbreaked. The Phantom 4 is no different. It's basically breaking the law, but it's fun to see how far this quadcopter can go without height limits and stuff like that."
