    For me since I already have a Futaba 14SG and a Canon 5DIII it looks like a much better option than the Inspire. Every time I have checked they have been out of stock. Will try to stop by their office for the real scoop.

    M690L $1799
    5D Gimbal $1399
    FPV $ 199
    Total $3397 plus battery.

    The Futaba is about $500 and the 5DIII about $2700-$3000. I would have to buy a pancake lens, my 500MM is a bit to heavy. :)

    I think I'd stick to the Panasonic camera myself, I couldn't afford a 5d at present. Which futaba controller are you using . They are as expensive as the drone itself where I'm from. I was considering the Dji Inspire but for the extra money the Align is definitely the way to go.

    From their website for the M690L (the Hexcopter model):

    If it's 8 minutes with a GH4, it will be even less with a 5D.

    My guess is, once you've added all the stuff you need, like a controller, battery charger, FPV components etc, the price starts to approach a DJI S900.

    I think they do high capacity batteries, 10/12000 mah I think it said . It will be expensive but not quite s900 price territory but as capable as s1000 , i.e the ability to safely carry the 5d If required, so the opportunity to pick up a cheaper 5d in year or 2 is a bit assuring for the future .
