Cool. I wrecked a motorcycle, and totaled a knee when I was 26. While I was in the hospital, my then wife brought me a radio controlled airplane kit. She said "Here. Build this. Then when you wreck it, no hospital bills or lifelong disabilities." I was into RC for about ten years. Lately, I've been using a kite to get aerial photos of the islands where we live to post on our blog, but I've really, really been eyeing the rc quadcopters for aerial photos. I just need a marine version that can survive an ocean dunking.

Thanks for the video. I love this stuff.

Re: quad copter filming? This video was sent out to fellow club members a couple days ago. Taken over our club field. I haven't had a chance to talk with the owner regarding specifics, but it appears to be pretty sophisticated as he's able to follow another plane in flight below him? Knowing the pilot, betting this is pretty much state of the art. Fall colors easily seen. Check it out -

If you listen to RV Navigator podcast or go to their website, Ken the host has a quad copter with a GoPro camera. Pretty cool!

I've been looking into these a lot. I've been having conversations with a guy on making a waterproof version. The little motors are neat. The prop is attached to a 'shell' and the entire shell rotates. Brushless motors.

One of the most common base models, the DJI Phantom, was selling for around $700 for the past couple years. Amazon is now listing it at under $ 500.

These things are a lot easier to fly than any RC aircraft before. They have GPS receivers and attitude sensors. You can program an altitude or heading hold mode. Some of the electronics allow you to program waypoints and have the quad automatically fly them like an autopilot. People are starting to build their own quads from all kinds of things. You can basically bolt four motors to a square shape, install the brains and it will determine it's attitude and fly. Real short learning curve compared to an RC airplane. And RC helicopters? Oh my. That's a whole different game. Easier to learn to fly a Cessna 152 than an RC heli.

My RC airplane experience got me interested enough to go ahead and get a pilots license, too. For real. So you can see I really got into it.

I was looking at a $1200 copter, seriously thinking about buying it for aerial photos here over the water, when I discovered that you can buy the parts and build your own quad copter for something like $300. People are flying all kinds of things now. Bicycle wheel rims. Keyboards.

Check this out, for example:
