Hi Gil
The Fat Shark's Byte Frost is pretty much the same price as DJI but fails miserably in comparaison, I don't know if they are still working on improving their technology or if they have given up.
It is hard to compete when you know DJI is willing to invest millions in R&D.
Even the upper end analog setup from fatshark is more expensive than DJI.
From what I see in the different quad groups, a lot of people are already switching to DJI, especially with the CADDX camera-VTX (parts from DJI) that can be installed even on 3" quads.
Fatshark had no problems selling $800CAD goggles, I would be surprised if DJI comes out with a lower tier. When Fatshark came out with a cheaper goggle setup, the vendors weren't selling many.
It will be interesting to see what happens this year, I am really surprised to see how many people I know and facebook quad friends are switching over.

So you're saying waiting (for a price drop) is futile ?

I should just bite the bullet, set an appointment with mortgage specialist ;) and take the plunge into HD now ?

The "beauty" of technology is that if you wait for the price to drop, the tech will be outdated by the time it gets cheaper and you will want the newer more expensive tech.
On the other hand, you can get a really good deal on computers running windows 7 now or even an Iphone 6!!  ;)

Or you can stick with the good old LOS that this club was founded on!

My thoughts on this, when I saw the clarity of the DJI system, they may get smaller, cheaper or have more features but it really won’t get much better in terms of the “picture” you will see. So I went in early, when it was on sale.

Interesting metric. A quick inspection of my current iPhone model and PC indicates waiting is not for me.
With Christmas nowhere to be seen, it's time to start leaving suggestive hints to the family about my next birthday present.... 8)
