    Funky things! Should be easily powerful enough to mount a camera.

    Looks like 4 540 brushless motors...pricey, 'n suck the battery down quick.

    I got one, it's GAUI quadcopter.
    Just recently upgraded it with the terminator parts, added servo for FPV system with glasses and 8ch Spektrum radio.
    Also got rid off the scorpion motors and added stronger ones so I can use 3-4S Lipo's.

    There are problems with GYRO, it doesn't accept every ESC (keep in mind every motor needs one) so it's better buy localy and see which one will work.

    You can get 6ch radio pretty cheap, don't need to buy the RTF or ARF Gaui, just upgrade parts + gyro, motors are around 40 bucks each, price of Lipo depends on mah, discharge rate and cells. then you will need 4 propelers and u r ready.

    The FPV is wicked, you got your eyes in the quadcopter thanks to the camera, it's like watching 3D movie.

    not required, it's not plane or chopper. The Gyro takes care of everything.

    + gyro, motor, blades and radio. www.amainhobbies.com

    if you want to buy complete set, sooner or later you are going to upgrade, and all the old parts are for nothing because upgrade kit makes the quad much bigger.

    All together you are going to save approx $400

    I remember when I bought my first T-maxx, then went to electric buggies and trucks, next step was Baja 5B and 5T and now this.

    it's never ending, they keep coming with newer and newer stuffs, computer hardware is 1000 miles behind, you will always crash no matter how good you are. the only option is to buy aluminium or hardened plastic parts but they don't last forever for example you are driving your 1/8 Savage flux with 12S batteries (120mph) and Baja 5T with 100cc engine will engage you, you are history. Been there, done that, it's fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun.
