I think that is going to produce some better video than my AR Drone/Iphone 4S combo! – which I will have some footage of next week after a mishap during my initial testing today

And it could be a very expensive accident-in-waiting with a RED!

I soooooo want one!!!! The fun I could have with that.

it costs about 80000$… 😐 I sell houses less expensive then this.

That copter has just enough grunt to get it off the ground, and the RED is paired down to it’s most basic form and one of the smallest lens choices…it would certainly be fun….

Canadians may want to look at this before setting up http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/standards/general-recavi-brochures-uav-2270.htm just some red tape to keep things interesting.

We have similar regulations in the US [or lack there of]. 35 kg is a lot, this Octocopter probably has an all up weight of about 8 kg or less depending on batteries plus the weight of the camera, so I guess for you Canadiens it all depends on your definition of “recreational purposes.”
This is the third Epic I’ve seen flown on an Octo, its cool but I’m not sure how necessary it is. For those with a little less pixel envy you can fly a Panasonic GH2, Canon T3i or Sony Nex5N or soon to be released Nex-7, the latter two shoot 1080P at sixty frames and weigh about 300g and most people couldn’t differentiate between the footage.
I’m not saying these cameras are as good as an Epic but with aerial footage its a lot more about perspective, mitigating risk and expense than technology.
Here’s a couple of samples of aerial footage:

Panasonic GH2: http://vimeo.com/29891124
Aerial footage has a lot of potential in marketing real estate once all of the real estate agents stop shooting their stills and videos with iPhones.

This is a way cool setup, an expensive setup too, but look at the results.
