I've loved my Phantom and what I've been able to do so far, and my setup is still morphing to one which will be a nice, small, and convenient way of capturing stills and video with a GoPro. That's awesome. The limitations of the craft and especially the camera have driven me to make the choice to build a heavy lifting hexactoper for times when I want to use bigger and better cameras. I rely a lot on still images and frankly, the GoPro blows for that, especially not shooting in raw. I've done a lot of research and have ordered about 2/3 of the parts to build my own heavy lifting hexa. When I do something, I don't cut corners. I spent more on the MOTORS alone for this hexa than the entire cost of my phantom. The 3-axis gimbal is the same, a good $250 more than my Phantom. By the end, the rig will probably equal buying 10 Phantoms. Maybe I should just do that, buy 10 Phantoms... Or not. :ugeek: I'll keep my phantom for sure. Love it and there are applications where it shines. The hexa though, will be able to get much higher quality gear airborne, and hopefully will be a much more stable platform. I'm looking forward to the results. I'm also looking forward to the learning experience of building this machine. It's a biggie, 1,000mm's across.
