I built a bigger hexacopter over the last couple of months with hopes of getting my Canon DSLR in the air. I also bought the best gimbal for a GoPro that's avalible while I save more money for a big gimbal. I'm super pleased with the smoothness of this new gimbal. I had to share. Sorry it's just some boring footage of my house but holy crap I like this new set up. Now I have to remember to keep adding a little bit of stick to the yaw axis so it doesn't bob to the right and left

Raw footage- no post stabilization

What do you think?

Those things are gonna be the future of filming snow sports in big mountains. Bring that shit to the eastside!

Hey Tex, do you know if GoPro offers lenses that aren't so wide? I would think you'd want a more standard focal length when filming from the air so things look as steep as they are. GoPros tend to make everything look flat. That's really nice footage. Super smooth!

Fyi, your pad is sick!

Ohh shit i want one of these

How much for something that would lift a gopro and fly in some wind?

And how much for a DSLR version?

Cant wait to see what you can get with this in the mountains.

Awesome Tex! its amazing what the capabilities of these things are. Sweet house BTW.

BGnight-The Hero3 and Hero3+ offers some field of view options in the settings of the camera. You have Ultra wide, wide, medium and narrow. Gopro themselves have not offered a narrower FOV lens but guys have been switching them out with aftermarket ones.

Dude I felt like I was watching one of those epic ski films- T rice was going to walk out of his sick house and get into a sick plane or something! looks super steady and LEGIT. I'm trying to find someone with one of these for my summertime cliff jumping skills, that would take my videos to the next level!!!

how's it fair with wind?

Thanks everyone. Ha,thats my wife's house, I just mow the lawn :wink:

ChirisNZ- you can get a DJi Phantom that can carry a gopro for around 600 U S dollar but it wont handle much wind. ,but you still need a gimbal. This was filmed with a DJI hero HD-3 gimbal for the GoPro 3. I got the gimbal and a DJI naza flight controller for 699 US Dollars. With everything I have Im into about 2400 US Dollars that includes a gopro 3 black. I do have enough lift power to carry a DSLR like a Canon Mark 2/5D but I would need a differnt gimbal, which I already have on order. It will run me around 1000 us dollars for the gimbal and gimbal controller.
Ideally I would waunt a DJI Zenmuse Z-15 for a panasonic GH3 . That gimbal is 3500 us dollars and another 1500 for the camera and a 16mm lens.

^^^^^^^ that would be my dream set up. that would run about 7000-8000 dollars . And, you have to be realistic and know that it can crash.

Cometogether- this new one can handle up to around 25 mph . Again though that depends on the gimbal and how well it can stabilize

Tex- I heard the Phantom was getting about 15 minutes of flight time. What are you getting out of your model?

I get around 9 minutes. Thats with a 5000 mah battery. Im going to buy a couple of 8000 mah batts and see if I can get around 12. although 12 minutes of flight is pretty boring video after a while
