Prop guards are an option.  I got 'em because of tipping over during take-off and landing... protects me from having to buy new props.  But they are removable.

 

Anyway:  7 minutes of sheer boredom:

Thank you for taking the time to show us via the video

Now the questions, sorry  :)

How easy to fly?

Whats the pay load? Obviously not a D4s I guess  <_<

Does that camera come with the drone?

Lastly,

Would a go pro be better?

Stupendously easy to fly...... when properly set up & launched.  It's GPS-based.  So if you just let up on the sticks, it stops and hovers. It will waffle a bit due to the innacuracies of commercial GPS, and the wind may toss it around a bit... bit it stays in one spot fairly well.

 

Camera & gimbal are included.  You can get them sans them, and buy the gimbal & a GoPro separately, but then you lose the live video-feed capability between the drone and a smartphone.

I think what I'm going to have to do is make some cards up to hand to people who want to flap their gums while I'm flying.  They want to know everything about it..... what it is, where to get one, how much they are, what it can do, videos or stills, how easy is it to fly, do I wear boxers or briefs, do you need a license...........
