,mmm,,,could it drop aigs on Just-thin beavers house?
The copter is a DJI Phantom with a gimbal attached to make the footage smooth and stable. Works amazingly well for what it is. Go pro 3 attaches right to it.
Yes, you can get a live view feed but I don't have that on yet.

Totally new to this so I don't know about other channels or extra weight yet

dji 450 looses a prop from Dan Kleinsmith on Vimeo.

Miles and miles of grass all around and it finds the one little spot on concrete to crash

Ain't that the way it alway works!

Well, I had hoped to get out and try this copter out before the shoot came up so thanks for the offers guys. The shoot happened earlyer than expected so I tested what I could then headed to AZ for the shoot and hoped for the best.

It just was released yesterday. You can check it out here
http://www.yamahamotorsports.com/spo...0/0/video.aspx

The copter clips are intermixed in with all the other footage we shot, but its pretty obvious which they are when you see them.

I just back from Texas from another shoot and will be filming lots more stuff personal here in town over the next few weeks. So, if anyone is still interested in getting out, just lewt me know

I thought you bought that helo for this purpose. You might need a big bore kit to haul a 1/2 rack, though.

I don't think I drink nearly enough to even begin to understand where copters and minivans intersect. Also, I live in WA, but if your copter/minivan has that sort of range, I'm in.

Nice!, showing this big tour-able dirt bike out in it's element keeps the spirit of some good off-pavement romping in the popular "Adventure Bike" class.
Honda's impression of an "Adventure Bike" is F'd up comparatively.

There are lots of leftovers from previous years... Saw a '12 for $11K last week. http://www.desertvalleypowersports.c...itID=100058355

Quadcopter cams are really cool. It sure opens up a lot of possibilities for your average photog that would have required an expensive helo ride previously.

Great job getting up to speed so quickly with your new toy. Video turned out well. Looks like I need to break down and buy the dji Naza control and have a little piece of mind when flying. Being able to hold altitude while panning or moving without having to think about it would be nice. Does your quad have the Zenmuse gimbal? It's on my wish list as well.

Our walk through the orchard yesterday reveled a few pear buds starting to pop. I'll let you know when you should be thinking about heading this way for the blossoms.
