After months of drooling I finally ordered one with a GoPro HERO3 Black Edition. I guess you can say I'm adding an air wing...
Anyone else here this crazy?
This is not the place to ask whether photo purchases are crazy.
What a wonderful addition to Iron Creek Photography. Just what you need.
Not buying a camera would be crazy!
I was looking at a fixed wing camera platform--they fly so much faster.
Never use the DJI Phantom Quadcopter with your GoPro camera when both devices have their Wi-Fi systems turned on. The DJI Phantom's Wi-Fi and the GoPro camera's Wi-Fi run on the same frequency, so if you use them together when both Wi-Fi systems are engaged, the DJI Phantom's transmitter will lose the ability to communicate with the DJI Phantom Quadcopter. Whenever this happens, you will not be able to tell the Phantom where to fly. This may result in loss of property or damage to your equipment.
And, don't forget that it is against the law to fly a "drone" for commercial video/photo capture. The FAA might have some rules out next year about who can use them and how. Just tell the FAA these are for 'personal use'.
Tell them you are with the NSA...

I have had one for some time. Put it on GPS mode, go up 7-900 ft and rotate slowly and take pics. I have also put the downlink system on mine so i can see first person what the mounted camera "sees" as its flying.
I know the owner and developer of these . Really nice guy and a member here.
Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
