I'm just new to aerial videos, actually I use a canon 550 (t2i) with a sigma 12-24 but I'm not very happy with autofocus, so I would like to change it, what do you suggest me? I've seen some nice videos using panasonic gh2, what do you think about?

this is an example video

If the only reason is autofocus then stay with t2i as for AP it is advisable to set the autofocus to manual as it is always hunting even on gh2 ! I have gh1 and I asked my friend who has gh2 that he also switched AF off on his gh2 !

Could you suggest me a good camera, for better results than a canon t2i under 2.000 usd?

Use it in manual. Autofocus works if you have a clearly defined object to focus on, but from the air t a height that is not always the case. You will always be focused far in any case, why not use manual with focus set on the infinity symbol with shutter priority set to a high speed. I use the 550, never had a problem, great camera.
