RX100 mounted on the DJI Phantom Quadcopter
Jan 9, 2013

As if I needed another hobby to suck all my time, this new DJI Phantom is pretty awesome as an entry point into aerial photog/video using quads. I just tried a quick test with the RX100 and it works really well.

The Phantom is tiny, fits in a backpack with the landing gear and props off. Like all the rc quads these things aren't toys...they can chop up babies and dogs and your hand into chopped salad. It's got the NazaM gps system so it's pretty stable for newbies - check your local laws and stuff at least in California the FAA has banned the use of any rc copters for commercial purposes. But if you've got a nice open space in your property or you're out hiking or something it's pretty awesome.

Here's a photo of it with one of my Hero3's on it. The RX100 just mounts the same way upside down on that vibration mount I got off eBay.
