    I’ve got a DJI Phanton with my GoPro 2 underneath on a brushless gimbal. I really bought it for work but its such fun I pleasure fly it more than work with it.

    A mate of a mate does a bit of quadcopter footage, when he is not flying about in his paramotor. Quite impressive quality too:

    Great stuff! How much do you need to spend to be able to get a decent enough camera airborn?

    I don’t go for pointless gadgets but my god I want this. I’m a sucker for alternative viewpoints of the world!

    How high can one of these things go? And could you train it to follow you as you ride?

    OMG.. the possibilities…

    GPS “follow me” is possible, staying away from powerlines πŸ˜†

    400 feet is the legal max height in the UK but most drones will fly way higher than that. The max vertical and horizontal distances can be limited in the software as well which is handy. You can fly beyond how far you see using the camera to send video back to a little TV or a set of goggles.
    One limitation is battery life, ten minutes on a Phantom is about it.

    I’m very interested in anything anyone manages to build and can operate that can take a payload of about 3-4KG incorporating an RC orientable brushless gimble.

    I have cameras available to test. NW Based if anyone is interested.
