    Good to hear the safety advice as people seem to think that because a drone has a cage on it’s propellers its safe to use around persons!.
    Even better news on the waiver so hopefully others may follow suit in the future.
    I’m looking forward to the shipping update & my fingers are crossed that others may receive theirs soon so we can all share our thoughts & experiences to help each other with our own Snaps.

    This solves the Low Altitude, Low Weight and Line Of Sight challenge for safety and FAA regs for a waiver. It’s a floor, not a ceiling. Mitigate the Risk. Great job to Tobin & Co. Bob Johnson/ Atlanta

    I think I speak for the majority of pre-sale buyers when I say “Awesome!” But where the heck is my Snap? Ordered 2 years ago.

    This news was what drew my attention to the Snap, and made me pull the trigger.

    Well done, awesome to have CNN Onboard. Just wondering is it an exclusive deal with them or are you free to also deal with other media companies so SNAP becomes the goto drone for industry??

    Totally hanging out for a shipping update please… especially your loyal overseas customers.

    A word on pricing would also be appreciated in the shipping update as you have changed the goal posts!!
    Cheers Russell 😁

      Thanks Russell. The wavier was exclusive to CNN. That being said, we hope that the science used to back this up will allow for further waivers in the future.

      What about the pricing would you like a word on?

    I am wondering ‘when’. It has been a long time and I’d sure like to get my drone before I get senile :o)

    Thank you Robert, I think the same. Mee too, waiting since more than 2 years that I can hold my Snap in my hands.
    @Vantage Team, good news, great product, but let’s give our feedback to Snap… don’t forget the shipment to switzerland. πŸ˜‰

    So you have been shipping for a few months now, yet there is no independent reviews out yet. Have you, or are you planning to ship units to trusted youtubers during this critical stage or your companys development? I ask as the internet is still almost empty of details about this drone, what is being written mostly describes it a vaporware and compares it to Lily. If the drone is as good as you say, and is ready for shipping why not deal with your PR? I think I can speak for everyone here when I say we don’t mind getting pushed 3 or 4 spaces on the line back, as long as we know its a good legitimate product.

      Hi Chris – Thanks for sharing your perspective on this. We have been prioritizing shipping to waitlist customers in advance of reviewers, as customers have been sharing lots of public reviews and we didn’t feel right doing anything to delay long waiting customers from getting them. There are now a large number of videos posted from customers, which I hope should give you some confidence that this is not vaporware. Here are a few recent ones:









      I’m in the midst of writing a shipping update now which will include more reviews. We’ll also give some thought to sharing a few with reviewers as well if others feel similarly.
