Trey Ratcliff made this video with a DJI Quadcopter and a GoPro Hero 3. I mean, this is just cool. It has a gyroscopic stabilizer for the GoPro, which is why the video looks all smooth and not jittery. One of the coolest things is, it has a built-in GPS. If you fly it out of range, or your controller dies, etc… the Quadcopter will fly back home and land where it started its flight!
Watch this video, which was made using ony the Quadcopter, the attached GoPro HD camera, and iMovie.
