. . . mind you with props flying off, duff batteries and IMU issues (hopefully fixed now) I don't suppose many of us would get to 50 hours anyway . . .

Could this be the beginning of an entire new model of UAV sales/service? That there may be "service centers" and that, to stay flying, we would have to service the aircraft regularly to stay flying. From a manufacturer's point of view, I can see it as a way of trying to address liability. With all flight data being uploaded to the cloud without the pilot involved and the ability to lock down the aircraft if particular firmware is not uploaded, it seems strategic - thinking ahead. Which may be good to keep the skies safe.

Just thinking out loud.

It's already a business model in the automotive industry....marginalize the retail aspect and bank on the service revenue....
