  • If you own a DJI Phantom Quadcopter

    Or you're soon going to be buying one, the Zenmuse Gimbal is for sale at B&H PhotoVideo for $US369, normally $US699. See here: zenmuse| B&H Photo Video

    Don't forget that you'll also need to buy the upgrade kit for $US69.

    I love these Black Friday deals!

      Early Christmas present?

      There's a new model about to be released in Oz (it's already available in the US), and the prices of the main unit have dropped a lot - just in case that makes a difference.

        I've got a few things on next year that I'd love to get some footage of from the air, but I'll keep plugging away with ground level shooting for now

        One thing I'm really amazed with is just how far this tech has come in the last couple of years. A dinky little 60D, a few bits of glass and a Macbook really can turn out broadcast quality stuff (lack of photographer talent aside), and these affordable flying rigs are an even stronger endorsement of that technical evolution... can't wait to fly one of these things around a big event.

          A very good friend just purchased a DJI Phantom and I now realise I need one in my life.

            If you get a Zenmuse Gimbal, I may have a spare part for you that will save you some $$. It depends on how good I am with a soldering iron.

              I'm a poor dive instructor, this is way down my list of things I should buy.
              Seriously looking at a cheapy quad just for fun though.

                Aren't there any good dive instructors that could give you some tips ?

                  This was the only quadcopter thread I could find so thought I'd post a link in here to this video, it's pretty impressive stuff and you'll need around 16 mins to see it through

                    Good friend of mine just bought the one [MENTION=5311]Irish[/MENTION] had for sale; he brought it around my place the other night and I was very impressed with it's capabilities. Incredibly easy to fly and gets great footage from the go-pro, will have to add this to my list of toys I *need* also.

                      match your DJI and raise you this:

                      Taxidermy Quad at its best......I believe this is genuine......


                      Imagine the neighbours looking up at the family BBQ on Sunday.

                      Sorry to thread shit [MENTION=7864]Sventek[/MENTION] - it is Friday......
