@gekitsu: i rest the top of my palm on the mouse, but grip with my fingers and move the cursor with finger bends--basically a claw grip, but resting the hand on the mouse. the lift-off distance is really short (not customization in the software)--i didn't do an exact measurement, but would peg it at less than half a cm. But given the sensitivity at 5600 DPI/CPI, you can't life the mouse straight up without affecting/wiggling the cursor position just a little bit.

@bombauer: fixed--it should be viewable now!
1. no they don't. only JPEGS show up in the camera roll, technically.
2. lightroom mobile won't read RAW files stored on your ipad. only JPEGs. iPhoto and other apps will read RAW.
3. nope, CC is required, no local wi-fi synching :/
@DavidJ: just watched episode 5 last night, and really enjoyed it! it did a much better job at explaining the underlying concepts of the episode's theme (light spectrum).
@HKZ: yup: www.flickr.com/normanchan/
@warmonked: yes, but WHY.
@nilsth: you can't (yet) with the Vision line of Phantoms. The Phantom 2 lets you tether a "ground control" bluetooth accessory that gives you flight path commands via an iPad app. But that's a bluetooth accessory that's not compatible with the Vision line. Since the Phantom 2 Visions can connect to Wi-Fi using the range extender, we're hoping that DJI will release a similar feature for the Vision app.
@protocolsnow: three full flight sessions in open space.
i like looking at my past library and thinking about what kinds of photos are missing: group shots, candid moments, booth setups, and then make an effort to shoot more of those. It's nice to come back with an SD card full of images that are more diverse than portraits.
@web-shooters: top speed is 15m/s (~33mph), but I wouldn't fly it at that speed at below 100 ft. 10mph is comfortable.
flying in a theater, concert hall, or stadium would totally work.
the apps work on tablets, but on ipad it would be a scaled-up iOS app, and Nexus 7 would look stretched as well. DJI has an iPad app for its Ground Control Bluetooth Accessory with the Phantom 2, but don't know if they're doing to release an iPad version of the Vision app.
I don't think the camera will be upgradable without breaking warranty, but who knows what hobbyists will be able to do with it.
i've been shooting video in the default FOV, medium (~110 degrees), and can take some at the wide FOV too.
