    Very cool. Can it support the weight of a DSLR?

    I use it with GoPro2, and with the 3 blade high performance props I use a Canon 7D & 18-55mm lens. I get a 22 minute flight time with the GoPro2, but only 12-14 minutes with the Canon 7D. About a $1200 invested in this with adding the GPS position hold board, and custom batteries I made by hand. I've changed the software (Hacked) to make the flight 3D, do flips, quick rolls, and now I can fly upside down. No tricks are done with the cameras due to weight. I've taken it to 1680 feet, but the gray area of the FAA states no higher then 400 feet, as I was told by a Court Judge, Oops! :-) Also anything above 600 feet, will make the police show up from all the 911 calls of a hovering UFO in the area. It fun, but in NJ it's a massive pain to fly near anything of interest.

    We may need the copter to capture the footage as our group gets swarmed and attacked by hundreds of zombies tonight :)
