Can you purchase the 4K camera & gimbal?

Also does Xiro ship this to Australia?

Update:
After much play with the Xiro Xplorer V I did enjoy, but ultimately felt disappointed in a solid drone to fly but sub-par camera.

I had no crashes or rough landings and one day I landed on some grass to find the gimbal making a grinding noise and after 27days of owning and flying this drone I traded it in for a DJI Mavic Pro and very happy to the upgrade.

PROS:
- compact & portable but whilst more rigid it's quite large in comparison to DJI Mavic Pro
- Super easy to fly - very stable and reliable
- the IOC feature is very neat!
- hand set feels very good in your hands when flying
- the shell backpack was great but felt quite large if looking to go on a hike to use in national parks or remote areas
- add ons felt too expensive (additional batteries, blade protector etc)

CONS:
- Battery pack gets very hot when charging
- camera quality ok but not great
- raw files unusable (can't even open them in photoshop)
- fish eye camera is not great (lots of steps in post to correct the lens effect)
- firmware steps are clunky
- support (in Australia) was lacking
- gimbal made a grinding noise after less then a month of flying (15hours flight time approx)
- camera connection problem, often I'd find myself waiting 15mins loosing battery just waiting to connect.

I will definitely watch the space of Xiro as there is a lot to like and great for anyone looking to test the air I enjoyed my first drone experience with Xiro & I hope this helps any else not looking to spend a lot of money for a first drone.

Hi njmcgregor,
have owned a Xplorer V for a few months and enjoyed flying, but a bit disappointed with video quality.
I have been labouring over whether I should upgrade to a Mavic Pro or even a Pro Palinum.
I came across your post today.
Thanks for our thoughts. You helped with my decision making process.

I'm curious to know if you are considering the Mavic Air at all?
I am in Port Macquarie NSW.

That's a pretty good pros and cons list, Mcgregor. Where would you put the price of the drone though? Because that might be a deciding factor for me.
