Several months ago, I joined and posted a few threads about wanting to get into aerial photography. Since then, I have had quite a bit going on, but I have lurked around, and I finally got the chance to dip a toe into the water with a cool little quad called the WLtoys V959. It comes with a camera built in, recording standard def, but at 60fps. The whole package came in, RTF with an SD card and reader, for under $70 from banggood.com. Check out the onboard video from the first flight I ever took with it:
I really have been having a lot of fun with this, and it is extremely durable, although I did finally manage to fray a motor wire the other day. Waiting for the repair parts to arrive is painful, as I want to get back to making videos.
I am also imagining moving up to something bigger and better, but baby steps for now. Anyway, if you are interested, I put the link to where I bought it from below.
Thanks, and happy flying!
