Quadcopter for filming with my dlsr

hello all,

This may be a stupid question looking to build one any chance on a budget on around 500 quid i have some experience in the model world with racing rc boats at national level and rc cars and have a specturum dx6i that i could use. i want to use it for filming with my dlsr i have a nikon ds3 which is very large around 1.4kg in weight is there anything that could carry this weight on my budget been looking on hobbyking at frame kits but have no idea!? if not i was looking at buying a small dlsr or even a gopro! any help would be great or even you may be thinking im crazy with such a small budget but thanks for reading my post!


Thanks Alex

I wouldn't put a dslr on what that budget would buy. To put it simply.

What do you want to do with it? We can help you better if we know the application.

Me personally, I wouldn’t put my DSLR on anything that flies. No matter the platform, crashes are almost guaranteed. Choosing a camera that can survive the punishment is key.
