    just a raw device at this point, but many third party's are working on a case.

    I missed out, they sold out too fast. In the waiting list

    Can't wait, we are putting one in the DC-3, give it full autonomous control should it fly out of range or encounter a stall.

    Would be nice to add GPS functionality but that would probably be seen as a bit dodgy.

    Still, i really love the idea of this. Have been following progress for about 8 months.

    Server or player?

    I need to get some free time so I can look at XBMC and linking it with the MediaPortal TV Server backend then I'll be able to use a Raspberry Pi as my main media PC.
    Then I can get rid of the Asus Eee Box
