We had the thread earlier about the kickstarter drone project which then got shut down.
Some of you guys were showing off your machines and I am currently in the research stage for said vehicles.
Did you guys build your machines yourselves? - Matt Johnston had a scarlet under his rig, does it really have enough power to lift a running scarlet?
Ive seen the hobby quadcopters and checked out the 600-700 series helicopters. I still do not see enough power in those machines to carry a 5lb rig underneath.
So the question is, what resources did you guys draw on to build or buy your rigs? Is it possible to build or buy a complete rig to carry a dslr with stabilization and tilt for under 3 grand?
Oh and cause im a geek, show me some pictures of your aerial rigs!
well i guess you can mount an epic or scarlet - although i bet this rig was over (let me edit this again) $20,000
Im seeing the professional grade flight controllers going for about $2000. The 8 motor frames going for about $4-5 grand. Thats not including batteries, radio, esc's, or even the camera mount.
