Would it be useful for overhead photography.

I remember seeing a news story on the Police having one that had CCTV camera on it, but they were told to Stop using it.

Re: hexacopter

In case you were wondering the base model is around $1500 then there's the GPS to add.
You can buy one here when they next have stock.

Re: hexacopter

I hate to think how complex the drive is, all those rotors ! and how is it controlled - i.e how do they vary the pitch of individual rotors.

Re: hexacopter

It is Battery powered, isn't it?
Wonder what the flight time is per charge

Re: hexacopter

I would suspect it's fixed pitch Mal.
Yes it is battery powered journeys and I would guess the flight time would depend on what bolt-ons are fitted.....not more than about 10 minutes I would have thought.
Edit: However the info here paints a rosier picture.
