It's actually considered one of the top 5 "must have" drones on the market. It started out a lot cheaper, and it has been slowly increasing in price. I bought it for $500.

Yes, when I came across this Lily, it did cost only USD500 on KickStarter. At that time it was already considered pretty expensive. But because of the controller and the advanced options included with the app including waypoints etc, it is considered a very good investment for extreme sportsmen.

Just a reminder: if you invested in the project via Kickstarter, you did not "buy" a product. You invested in a project, and if the project succeeds in making a product, they have promised to give you one if they survive. Sometimes projects fail for failure to successfully make the product due to technical reasons. Sometimes they fail because it cost more than they thought, and they can't remain solvent, and thus fail to deliver anything to some/many/all backers. Not to say you shouldn't back projects on Kickstarter, but just a reminder that you are taking a bit of a risk. How much of a risk depends on the audacity of the project, and the ability of the project team to execute.
