That is my goal. I have a golf course that wants me to shoot all their holes (which is the reason i got the easy glider) but a quad copter would open up a lot of new possibilities.

Yep... Sam has been eyeing them up for a school project build ... showed him some of the FPV vids..

I think if you want to film the golf course the glider can go slow but is going to be an up and down affair, where you can gyro the snot out of the quad so its a very smooth cam platform ... second thought you probably could gyro the snot out of the glider as well if you wanted to use it as a steady platform

so would a 4stroke gas vyper or a 12s osiris be cooler?

one built for speed or one built for comfort

Man tri copters and quad copters have a lot going on. I need to just buy an RTF setup.

Found some gaui with camera mount for something like $379... you supply the batts and receiver

Its a whole new area ... I have more expertise in gassers (which is none) compared to rotor or quads

So it looks like this the whole kit including the gyro system. I would imagine my camera software from the flip will be able to take frames out of the video for single pics right?
