    They were supposed to be out in June. Thought there might be an early beta release.

    In the last email I received from them, they said shipping will now start in October.

    Man these things look really cool guys! And it does say that they are shipping in October of this year. Little bigger than a quarter. Wow!

    Newbie here,
    Haven't bought my P4P yet, trying to learn as much as possible from the forum about flying it and marking the drone.

    Question: what is a ping tracker. Are we talking about a GPS device like Marco Polo?

    Thanks
    Sold out at $99. One year free service. I wonder how much the monthly service will be after one year? Neat little device.

    Per the link I posted above:

    "After the first year, Ping’s coverage plan is only $36 per year ($3 per month) per device."

    It sounds like you did miss something. As I noted above, the last email they sent stated orders will now start shipping in October.

    I am very happy with my Marco Polo unit and not only would I buy it again, it is the only thing I would buy because some of the areas I fly in do not have reliable cellphone coverage (especially for trackers which have low power and small antennas) so a cellular-based tracker would be useless to me.

    Thx msinger !!

    Reading through the updates, I see the latest 9-13 says it looks like they will start shipping, "roughly" on time.

    Any beta testers please post up results ! This thing really sounds like it really could be a great tracker!

    I'll take any progress at this point. This looks like it's going to be a great product.
