    wink Quadcopter for shooting photos from the air

    Hello everyone!I wanted to start out a new topic about aerial photography and making videos from the air.There is the new so called "Quadcopter" from Parrot called Ar. Drone.Basically It's an RC helicopter that is a little different looking(pretty awesome to me),and that s not controled by a RC remote,it is controled by your iPad,iPhone or iPod touch! It has two cameras that transmit video that the Drone is seeing,to your device from where you control it..I wanted to post pictures of it,but i cant right now so if your interested,you'll have to search it on the web.Its really easy to find..I know you can't mount a Canon eos on it,but yu can mount some lightweight cameras like GoPro HD,some canon pocket cameras,maybe a mobile phone with a good image quality..So if anyone has an experience with the Parrot Ar.Drone,or even heard anything about it,i would really apreciate you to help me out with the decision of buying it or not..I dont want to waste my money,and I dont earn 300 dollars every day,wich is the actuall price of the Drone.

    the ar drone is great, you can see one here flying around the top of the eiffel tower (photoshopped ofc). Eiffel Tower - Gigapixel Photo , go full screen and zoom in around the top of the gigapixel photo. however it will not lift much. No way you are going to manage to lift a DSLR. Maybe a point and shoot, but a small one.
