I just want to see a nice Unix-like for these calcs. Eventually it'd be cool to have a bunch of slick stuff like a VFS and such, but for now I'll be happy once there's good math support and students can start using it.
The interesting thing to me is how quickly you transition from Sales oriented -> Marketing oriented if things are going well. Early product/market fit can act as a bit of a guide for when to do the transition.
The big innovation here over comparable camera-stablizied GPS-locked drones (eg. DJI Phantom II) is that there is no mechanical gimble which significantly reduces weight and battery consumption of the Bebop.
It's a great innovation, but I still prefer my mechanical gimbal. It offers a lot wider angles and I won't have to crop my footage. When I don't need it I'll just leave off, the reduced weight makes the drone ripping through the skies like a ferrari.
But a mechanical gimbal is awesome; it can rotate to a horizontal position, so you can get satellite-like views, or simply look at the top of something; with a fixed front camera you will never be able to get those kinds of shots.
We installed statsd/graphite early on to experiment around with visualizing our task and request logs for Zaps. We've since settled into Elasticsearch and Graylog which is phenomenal for debugging and support -- but has it's growing pains.
The timeseries stuff is used more at the application layer, rather than the pure logging layer. For example, I believe we're using it to track how many tasks an account has done over the last 30 days for pricing/plans.
