First of all, since this is my first post - hello to you all.

For some time now, I've been browsing through the forum and found some very useful information. The only thing left is to make up my mind and finally choose the best platform, suitable to my needs and financial possibilities. (I know there was a similar subject before, but I hope this one will be a bit more specific)

I realize that all solutions have their pros and cons. What I'm looking for is a stable,AP dedicated helicopter, mainly for photography but also for a video shoot once in a while.

Cutting to the chase;

I decided to go with electric heli, since I'm not looking for long flight times / range (rather decent lifting capability and stability) The options are (the chosen one will be equipped with DJI AO straight away) :

-Bergen e-observer (I'm a bit afraid of the distance between PL and USA, but they're known for their excellent customer support ...)

-Aircrane based heli upgraded by Clearshot.pl (the most expensive option, it will be around 20-22k $ with DJI on board, but with customer support right in PL. And Jakub (the owner) is definitely a person who knows his stuff).

- Trex 700 (with photoshipone gimbal 3x or 2x - other suggestions?) - self made (with changed electronics, picloc etc)

-other option ? (I'm always open for suggestions).

Now what I'm looking for, is some comments and solutions from people already using this kind of equipment. For example, I'd be grateful if someone dispelled my doubts regarding winter flying (is it possible, what's the % of power loss due to low temps , say -10 C)

Also if there is an experienced AP rig designer out there (preferably from central/ western europe), who would be willing to build a custom electric helicopter (f.e. based on trex), please PM me as well (I hope I didn't break any forum rules).

Any advice is welcome. Thank's in advance.

Wouldn't say so - 23 k $ for the complete package sounds rather expensive. Nevertheless thanks for the link.

I'm still counting on some more comments from you guys....

Best regards

You'd be amazed at how much good work you can do with a sub-$3000.00 setup....
