    Yup, cool. The UAV was pretty "I want that" though, shaithis.

    It's H Zed O. An Englishman should not attempt to mimic a US accent.

    This is really cool. Be interesting to see the price point of it but in most instances I would say it is well worth it. Will more than likely do it for my next one if its available.

    I like how the hexus guy looks at the camera twice at the end preparing for a wrap up and gets it stolen from the other guy
