DJI F450 Flamewheel ARF

I have decided to sell my DJI F450 kit (probably going to regret this). It is the full DJI kit with frame, motors, ESCs, props, and NAZA flight controller. I have decided to build a hexa and I need to allocate funds to that project instead. The F450 has had less than 20 flights with no crashes and is a great little quad. It comes with 2 sets of 10 x 4.5 DJI props (one set balanced and one set new and unbalanced), 2 sets of GWS 9x5x3 props (one set balanced, the other unbalanced), and 2 Turnigy 3S 2650 40C packs with Deans connectors. This kit has the newer DJI motors that can fly on 3S or 4S and has the white and red arms. They are the stronger, stiffer arms. The quad flies great and I have shot some GoPro footage that came out pretty nicely, especially with the GWS props. The receiver is NOT included. You will need a receiver and radio to fly. I just want a larger platform that can lift more so I am building a hexa. I am asking $475 shipped CONUS. I realize the kit sells for $460 new but this is built, flight tested, and includes battery packs and multiple sets of props as well. Please PM if interested rather than posting in the thread. I have great feedback here (and elsewhere) so buy with confidence! Thanks for looking.

That is exactly what he plans to do

Don't get me wrong.....the 450 is a great quad and it lifts a reasonable amount itself, but I feel the need to do a hexa for my purposes.

It depends on the camera.

Right now there are a few different mounts that could be used with various cameras. All mounts are installed underneath the quad but that is not your only option.

For instance, I mounted my GoPro right on top of the battery using the vented helmet mount strapped right to the frame. I also flew with a micro tripod zip tied on top and mounted my Sony CX-100 and even my Panasonic TM700, both of which are considerably heavier than the GoPro.

I was impressed with how well the quad flew, especially with the TM700 mounted. It flew the same as with the CX-100 but one minute less flight time and less power for recovery from a quick descent. Obviously you wouldn't want to do anything too crazy with a TM700 mounted as it is over 400 grams but it did fly it and it flew it smoothly and held altitude great.
