My nephew dropped a MkII off a remote controlled helicopter at 250 ft altitude a couple of years ago. It didn't survive the dive. We recently built a 75 ft trailer mounted monopod for him to use to shoot golf courses and other such stuff. I will post a pic when I have more time. It works great.

Just do like Mike does and toss your camera

It's cheaper... unless you miss!

Here is the website for the copter used in the OP's link. These are build-it-yourself 'copters, and they are high-end. Check out some of the videos on the site, the performance is just nuts.

If I'm reading correctly, that's 2,100 Euros, and doesn't include the transmitter/receiver, AND you have to assemble it yourself?

They say this version is strong enough to use a 5DmkII, LOL. Would I dare...? Would you?
