I know I will get a lot of push-back on this but again, just my opinion as a long-time photographer.
I would have to agree, and this coming from a heavy go pro user, I have comes to realize the go pro is not going to capture the picture quality I want from AP, and am now looking at carrying my micro 4/3 under my quad. But for the radian I still think the go pro gives me a good feel for the flight, and will continue to use as a fpv camera or for those quick flight videos. For AP if you are serious u use a multi rotor anyways.
