Well @frauenfelder according to the good folks at WeeklyPenny(!?) you’re wayyyy off -

From the “review”

The DroneX Pro was designed by two engineers and drone lovers.
They knew the market was flooded with two types of drones: cheap drones that were low quality, and drones that were well made, but carried a huge price tag.
Then they found something interesting out: the expensive drones were not that expensive to build – they were expensive to market. This led to one engineer telling us that the brand name was what people were paying for.
DroneX Pro is built with the same high-quality parts as the big, expensive name brands. But it relies on viral internet marketing and word of mouth instead of expensive mass media. This is a professional level drone at a bargain price, and lets beginners fly like seasoned pros.

It would be interesting to see a comparison of a whole bunch of drones–

“we’ve designed a couple of scenarios-- what’s the most inexpensive drone that can complete these shots”?
