Thread-topic: Quad Copter with video cameras

Sorry, I know nothing about these, but if you go to and search 
"copter" you will see lots of listings many with reviews (I saw some with over 
100 reviews). Since the place is really known as a camera and video store, most 
of the reviews should address the video aspects and give you a pretty good idea 
of the benefits. Prices seem to be all over the place, so you should find 
something in your price range. Just FYI, I don't know about prices for these, 
but I find most of the time these guys are pretty competitive with Amazon but 
once you see something you like I would compare prices. BTW, NFI but I've been 
a very satisfied customer for many years.

OK, this is a little off-topic, but I'll be using it as a tool, so I guess 
that qualifies. 

I'm looking to get a quad copter with a video camera to help me manage my 
wood farm and the surrounding areas. I have lots of uses for something 
like this (also check the gutters of the shop, etc (so there shop 

I've been looking at these on Amazon and they don't give enough detail as 
to why one is better than the other. 

(Note, I'm not looking at the little ones for under $100 bucks. I've 
budgeted about $1000 for one, but can go higher if there is a good reason 

I don't need long 'flight times.' I do want to be about to see the video 
as it's flying. I would love to be able to take 'stills' as well in 

The camera needs to be able to point somewhat 'down.' (It seems most of 
these don't really look down much.) 

Any ideas or suggestions?
