DJI Phantom Quadcopter

I may have finally found something I want for Black Friday.

The DJI Phantom Quadcopter with GoPro Mount Version 1.1 is a quad-rotor RC helicopter that acts as an aerial platform for a GoPro HERO action camera. This product will appeal to a variety of potential users, from RC aircraft hobbyists seeking the ability to mount a camera so they can record their flights, to videographers and photographers looking to open up a whole new range of shooting possibilities. New for the Version 1.1 update is a self-tightening rotor design. Whereas on previous versions there was a slight danger a rotor not securely tightened could loosen up and come off in flight, with this improved design your props will always stay tight. The Phantom can achieve a maximum horizontal flight speed of 33 ft/s and can ascend and descend at up to 20 ft/s. It comes with 2.4GHz Transmitter (TX) that features an operational range of up to 984′ line-of-sight. The controller draws power from readily available AA batteries. Please note that many Wi-Fi systems, including the Wi-Fi used on GoPro HERO cameras, also operate on 2.4GHz and may interfere with the transmitter. Take care to ensure the GoPro’s Wi-Fi is turned off with operating this quadcopter. Because of the complexity associated with multi-rotor aircraft, the Phantom relies on the Naza-M autopilot system. This system uses GPS for navigation and to maintain flight stability. While fully manual operation is possible, most users, especially videographers hoping to get the smoothest possible shoots, will opt for GPS Flight Mode. GPS Mode is an autopilot system that keeps the Quadcopter stable and right-side-up when moving, and holds it in a fixed horizontal and vertical position whenever the controls are released.
