    5D MK III on Quad Copter/Helicopter

    Found this pretty cool, it is a 5D Mark III on a Multi Copter flying over the Niagra area.

    There other vids are not bad either, would be a cool "toy"

    I'd love one of those quad copters.

    Just looking at that footage, for film production, it creates a whole new set of possibilities.

    Interesting, dramatic and previously impossible camera angles can now be achieved quite inexpensively without the need for cranes or planes/helicopters.

    Amazing footage! I've been toying with the idea of getting a small hobby quad copter and putting a GoPro camera on it..wouldn't quite get the same quality of footage but could still work

    From an RC point of view, I wouldn't want to do any damage with one as you will lose more than the house over it.
    Cassa will frown upon unlicenced and uninsured opperators.
