    Thanks!

    Since we got so much traffic from the tv news story we are running out tonight and tomorrow night.

    We asked people to NOT "drive-by" last night since we didn't want the trick or treaters to have to dodge extra car traffic.

    Loved the show. I wanted to do some simple floods and pumpkins this year but ran out of time. I expected to find more after Halloween deals on stuff I could use for next year but surprisingly didn't find much. Loved the use of a quad copter for the video. I have an interest in them too.

    Yes, that's my drone.

    The model is DJI Phantom 2 Vision+

    You're looking at about $1300 to get started, more when you add the extra batteries needed.

    If the only thing you'd want it for is video for your display, I'd be happy to bring it over and use mine.

    Or alternately, I'd be happy to show you the one I have in person before you buy one....

    Wow Paul ... The phantom is one of the most popular units .. I assume a Go Pro cam on it. I know you showed a Phantom in your picture .. Awesome rig !

    Yes, I would love to have you come by some time in December and get me a aerial vid .. How long you can shoot before you come back down ? Is it best to shoot a dusk rather than in the dark ?
    Thanks,

    It's the model with a Hd camera built in.... The advantage (over the go pro) is I also get a live video feed back to my controller.

    Fly time? About 20 minutes. I have 3 batteries so I can get about 60 minutes of video before I ned to recharge.

    Batteries are $130 so that's why I don't just have 10, ;-)
