    i was very disappointed with the show tbh, the only bargain i saw was DJI selling the FC40 for £250 (but don't know how that compares to RRP). As for the show itself, think i was back on the train home within an hour

    there was 1 hall, half of which was netting off for FPV racing (which was good to watch, alot of crashes), a big Panasonic stand/dome (not sure what they have to do with drones) & around 30-35ish trade stalls. The stands seemed to vary from huge commercial drones with DSLR camera's, or ebay Phantom copies (seemed no middle ground). DJI had a small corner stand with a tree, tv & 10 Phantom/FC40 boxes on display. Apparently it was a big success with the traders, who expect it to be bigger next year
