    I saw on another channel, You Tube maybe, about someone mounting their DSLR to their Phantom. You can see his buddy holding it carefully in his hands during take off and landings. Flight was obviouly short and scary due to heavy and expensive Nikon hanging precariously underneath. O.K... dumb question of the month. Could you attach enough helium balloons to the Phantom to at LEAST overcome the 1 pound DSLR? It would fly laterally like poop I'm sure ( I think) but up and down? Think of the smooth video. C'mon, somebody please try this! And shoot some video as well. I'm too lazy to find some helium ballons. :idea:

    Yes, I'm a newbie. How could you tell?
