If it passes youtubes upload its ok. Youtube only lets you use certain songs.

Its stupidly simple. I fly helis and some 3D as well. This is soooo much easier. And without a FPV like the ar drone, you defiantly need line of sight to fly. I'm getting better at judging distance. But will get FPV soon so I can fly without LOS.

Nope, flew it in 15mph winds the other day. The day of video was 5-10mph winds.

This is way better than a balloon. Total cost for the Phantom is $697 plus the gopro. And of course I have 5 batteries. This is the cheapest RTF system you can get. And it is the easiest to fly.
