Trex 500 videography
I have been obsessing about getting a multicopter to get some awesome video. I want a very stable setup that produces good video with a go pro... Maybe even a dslr. I am disappointed by the lack of options however. It's either build your own or buy a very expensive one if you want reliability. Is it possible to get smooth shots from a heli like the trex 500 or 600? I have seen many vids and many are shaky but I wonder if I just bought a phenomenal camera mount would it make for a solid platform?

For what it's worth here's my bicopter with a GoPro bolted directly to the fuselage. Sorry the vid is so long (5.5 min).
Around the middle of the video there's some on-board shots while doing circuits.
Towards the end there's some of - ironically enough - a T-Rex 500 hovering with me:
There's no immediate plans to manufacture and sell this aircraft myself - but that may change.
I've since added a condensed (2 min) version:

Really glad you like it. I'm looking for a manufacturer but in the meantime could build a few myself.
The biggest problem, though, is finding a good bicopter controller. The one used in the videos is an Arduino APM+IMU with airplane code that I modified. However, it has some quirks I'm not too happy with.
I'm also playing with a KK board, but no success so far.
The people making the FY90Q controller say they are fine tuning it's bicopter code, but it's been a couple of months now.
