This is the Q-700Pro which includes the WK-M flight controller/ radio system and camera mount system as shown in the ad. RTF out of the box.

Radio system is a JR 9503.(Solo setup) or (JR DX8 and DX6 for two man setup) I fly the unit plus control the mount (360 pan and 180 tilt with roll) all done with one radio in this video. Solo operation to cover breaking news for KHQA.(CBS) Camera is the Canon DSLR T2I with 17-50 Tamron lens. Live video out. (2 1/4lbs camera and lens) 500mw 900mhz video down link system. Can be setup as a one or two man operation. Unit includes down link installed. Does not include camera.

This unit has the ability to shoot.... still shots, Video, Pano's or Spherical's.

This was a test in poor weather conditions to see the performance of the system when being called out. Wind is around 20mph with gust to 30 mph. Extremely overcast with sleet. Temp is around 35 degrees.

Video from T2I

Hitting the website this week. The unit will be on sale the month of Dec. Including one free set of batteries with purchase.

Thanks
John

I wanted to write a quick reply and let everyone know that I purchased one of these units from John in early September. I own and operate a photo/video production Company that is located in PA, MD, and DE and we have been established since 1995. Our business has two divisions, one is photo/video that covers social events to corporate functions, government, commercial, and a wide array of other services and the other division deals with social media and press coverage.

The purpose of this quadcopter is for aerial coverage - primarily video - of real estate and survey work, as well as aerial coverage of cruise ships and PGA tournaments. I've flown Trex 700's and other copters for quite some time and this is a welcome change in ease of use, regulations, etc.

It took a bit to get the unit as I ended up getting a bunch of components upgraded, such as the DJI gps, but it is a SOLID unit, built incredibly well, and flies perfectly. I had my wife take some video footage of the unit taking off, flying, and landing, and can upload it if anyone would like it...given she was filming it's very shaky as she was also holding our baby in her other arm, but it gets the point across. With regards to client projects, most are WIP, NDA, and RR, so the publicity is often limited but can take it around here and film various scenery.

I'll have a follow-up post in the coming weeks with some video samples but have been very busy with client projects and travel, in part because we're filming a lot of the election and presidential coverage in DC. John has gone out of his way so much, much more than I expected, in that whether I email, text, or call him, he's almost always available. For the few times he hasn't been, his response time is great.

If you're a serious flyer who can afford a unit like this, it's a great business investment and far exceeds some of the consumer-oriented devices.

If anyone has any questions please let me know and I'll post again in the next week or two.

Here's a quick video I did this morning before heading out. It's from an open area nearby with some trees and houses in the background.

Notes are on the video but...

====================================================
Ground camera - Sony CX700 - 60p
Quad camera - Sony CX550 - 60p (rolling shutter looks ridiculous as the shutter speed is too low)
Winds - about 12-15, upper 40's temp
http://youtu.be/ADEDWZr6HJY

Canon 60D, Sigma 15mm FE
250/16/320 60p
Winds about 18-20
Temp - 51F

*Ignore the wire/motor at the top corner, I rushed this before it got dark and never set the camera up, and only had about 2 minutes of battery power left...I seriously need to buy more*
