    I was curious, so I thought I'd give it a try. This is a short video of my experience. I would highly discourage you from trying this for yourself, unless you have a couple thousand dollars to blow. Still pretty awesome though!

    i can only surmise that the flight time was extremely short. however i would not shoot a professional video shoot with a DSLR any ways. sure the DSLR can do certain things like a professional grade video camera can, but just because a yaris can be driven on a race track, does not mean that it can compete with a lotus. with that said, i've seen amateur shoot "professional" quality video with a gopro that a professional could not get. it all comes down to what you do and how you use the equipment you have. just because you have a bugatti veyron does not make you a race driver - just look it up on you tube.

    But just think of all the beautiful girls you could pick up with that thing, And since there is no real back seat, she could
    hold your "Phantom". ;)
