    Stunning footage. I actually got brief “butterflies in my stomach” when the base-jumping shots started.

    I’m not sure why it’s called a “Quad-copter” when it has 5 rotors.

    These are really cool devices; I’d love to have one and a camera to go with it. However, according to forums at other sites, such devices are technically illegal once a camera has been attached and “commercial purposes” are involved. (I seem to recall reading that at least one person/business entity has been “fined out of business” for using one). It seems they are considered “drones” by the FAA, and right now, only government agencies, the military, and, I think, certain research orgs can be authorized to use them. I, for one, hope that changes.

    Footage looks great but so far these drone cameras are illegal to operate commercially for ANY use in the United States. You can only operate them as a hobbyist. Fines start at $10,000. No matter the six and no matter if they are flown on private property, they cannot be billed out for a commercial job.
