I fly mini electrics and can hoverand FF somewhat. I want to eventually get into Aerial Photography and don't want to spend big $$$ yet. How would a Raptor 60v2 with an OS 70 work? I have a D70 that i would like to use but also a decent compact video cam in the future. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Chris

I use a Shuttle Plus with an HCS mount. Works great.

Would the raptor be able to handle the new HCS mount with retractable skids?

If you are going to invest in a heli for photo work, I would recomend a gasser, like the predator.....I fly a raptor 50 w/ tuned pipe, with an M30 mount for stills. The heli pulls the mount no problem, even with the down like...The problem is the exaust....If I want to take a pic down wind, most of the pics have smoke in them, and my camera get fuel residue(sp?) on it....not to mention that the predator with much bigger blades is much more stable than my 50 raptor. I am saving for a gasser right now and with keep the raptor 50 as a back up.

I would say, if you are going to purchase a heli, buy a gasser.

I was actually looking at the Intrepid gassers too.

I would presume that the Raptor 60 would be a bare minimum as power is concerned. So a raptor 50 Hyper would be not worth it, right?
