That's very cool. Please tell us more about how it works. Is it basically an RC plane with a camera? Or do you add your own camera? Can you change camera settings in flight? Thanks.

Here is a link to the one I'm using... all pictures were taken with a go pro 3+
DJI | Phantom 2


I also added a first person view transmitter so i can see the cockpit view while flying... this particular one has almost a mile range...

That puppy is too cool !!!

If I had some extra money laying around collecting dust, I would be flying 1 of those.

My financial advisor (DW) thinks I have too many toys now.

Neat!

Now all you need to do is put a high power laser pointer on it and use it to buzz the noisy camping neighbors.

My brother in law owns the first generation DJI Phantom model. I think more and more people will be incorporating these into their vacations and how they document their trips. Just think of how few people owned cameras and camcorders not that many years ago and now you can film, edit and send pictures/video to people right on your phone!

My brother in law will be taking his on his adventures and making some of the most amazing home videos no doubt. Here are a couple of videos others have posted showcasing some of the things you can do with them. One guy took his into the everglades in Florida while they took a tour with airboats. He controlled it right from one of the airboats. The other video is of the aerial lift bridge in Duluth MN.

As for price go on Amazon and look up DJI Phantom. You can score the first generation for under $500 and the latest release for under $900. You can attach a Go Pro Camera for $200 - $300 or the new DJI Phantom II can be bundled with a camera that is just as good as the Go Pro.
