We never wrote a post about it when we originally put in a pre-order, but in May 2015 we took a huge leap of faith and preordered a $500Lily drone for our 2016 expedition. We knew we wouldn't have it for last year's trip since they weren't supposed to start shipping them until 2016, but the price (for what it is) seemed too good an opportunity to miss. So this year, when it arrives, we've been hoping to have beautiful aerial shots of us playing ukulele and cruising down rapids!
Unfortunately, I've just received an email from Lily telling us that she won't be shipping until this Summer, due to manufacturing delays :'( We're crossing our fingers that she'll arrive in time for this year's trip in August!
If you're in any doubt as to why we would fork out $500 on a product we haven't even seen yet, watch this video - your mind will be boggled:
