Subject: [Shop-talk] Quad Copter with video cameras

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?
