yeah it's nuts. but I broke almost even in terms of $$ because I sold my hero1 and hero2 to get the hero3. So far the battery life is amazingly disappointing but the image quality is unbelievable. I'm quite impressed.
120fps or even 60fps is not that great unless you actually crash (!!) and then slow it down. Otherwise any site like youtube will convert it to 30fps anyway so shooting in the 2.7k mode seems to be the best option because the quality is so high. I use 60/120 when not in the air though so I can slow stuff down. 120 is really really nice.
