And I like my Traxxas T-Maxx as well, even if it has turned into a money pit upgrading every little part and piece to anodized aluminum...

RC multi rotor enthusiasts......

My 350qx has definitely turned into a money pit. Its quite frustrating. Lol. But when she's in the air she's a lot of fun. My 180qx is a lot of fun as well.

Here was one of my first test flights with my Flame Wheel. Definitely more stable video than my Phantom.

Maybe, though you tend to mute sound when making video and just put your own soundtrack to whatever video you shoot...or at least that's what I've seen most people do.

I got to fly a DJI Phantom Vision 2 today. All I have to say is WOW, I can't believe how easy and stable it is to fly. I'm really curious if the regular phantom is that easy and stable to fly as well? I love my 350qx don't get me wrong. But there are some things about it that I'm not too fond of. For instance the intelligent orientation control, and the fact that you can't turn that off, whereas you can turn it off on the phantom. super cool!

I just bought one of those to add to my Phantom I have...mainly because I liked the idea of doing RTV to my phone.

They are very similar. The props are actually larger on the Vision 2.

I love the Phantom as far as flight characteristics compared to my F550. One other reason I got the Vision 2 was the new batteries, and the "up to 25 minute" flight time. The batteries for the Phantom seem to only last about 15 minutes, so the Vision 2 gives me the longest flight time of any of my multicopters.

I'm waiting on my SD cards to arrive so I can start recording video...should get those Friday.

I'm just bummed that the vision 2 didn't come with a gimbaled camera

Agreed...it does have the shock mounts, however the pictures made it look like it might have been gimbaled.

Pretty cool videos. Had some RC cars and planes in the past and just recently picked up a blade 120. The lightweight designs and batteries have come a long way. I still get a kick out of the $30 helicopters. We do timing races in the house with the nephew, lil bastard beat uncle Jim last time!

Nice videos.

I don't have any quads, but I picked up a V911 helicopter last week and have been flying it non-stop. It's a little 8" chopper, but it's pretty zippy. I ordered a V913 and just got it in today. It's a large chopper, hoping to find an open field to fly it in the next couple days. I might need to get a quad seeing all the fun you guys are having.

I now am flying a Blade 180QX, a Blade 350QX, as well as an E-flite UMX carbon cub. Having a blast with these things. I love my 350QX!
