    "FOr the price the gadget isn't up to par. It looks very fragile and unstable. I won't buy it ever. When the alternative of drone are present, this is no brainer pass. Sorry. "

    "A good tool for aerial photography, the site is a bit wonky and definitely needs some tweaking. But the things that it shows and the features that are there are enough to get an understanding and a grasp of what you're looking for."

    "This company is out of England so shipping might take a bit longer, but your neighbor has nothing like this. Forget about drones, this is a way to actually hook up your camera for aerial views and to take the shot. You will control the kites course, so don't worry about losing the camera and kite. "

    "you attach this to your camera which attaches to your kite and it can help create panorama shots. I mean that's cool n all but it seems much easier to use a drone and a smartphone app, but if you like being technical and creative I see nothing wrong using this solution."
