Hey New Yorkers. Anyone flying something similar to this?

I fell in love with cameras and lenses while working at B&H. I am now falling in love with copters and the idea of shooting photos and videos from them.

I am thinking of purchasing this RTF system:

But I don't think I am ready for it yet. So I've done some research, and it looks like Gaui might be a nice place to start. It's also been suggested to me that WhiteSpy's kit might be even better.

Which choice do you think will work better with a small GoPro camera?
Are there any other, similar choices for me to look at?


What do you think of the RTF system mentioned above?
What other systems should I look at that would give me the smoothest possible video footage using a Canon DSLR or the new Panasonic GH2?
(I know that I would first have to learn to fly smoothly

By the way, anyone lives in New York area, and would like to help me buy/build/fly my first toy? (for fun or for compensation) Or anyone who can give friendly advice via Skype or phone? I will give you a "Special Thanks" in my film production. Please PM me.


P.S. I will not be flying over populated areas until I know what I'm doing.

You shouldn't fly over populated areas when you know what you are doing...
Electronics can fail,
happens you can bet it's when you are hovering over a populated area!

Stay safe mate.
