Buying my first quadcopter

Well technically its my second. My first was a really cheap $50 mini quadcopter which lasted about as long as you would expect a cheap quadcopter to last.

So Im buying one and there seems to be a fair priced one in my local town. I was wondering if any could identify its bits and let me know if they think Im getting value for money :D

Im going to pick it up tomorrow and its costing me around $600. From what I can see online it does seem to be a fair price. Any guesses as to what hardware its running? :D Cant wait for tomorrow.

Im going to use this for hobbiest video footage. Recon this is a good buy for a cheapish starter quadcopter (that is not $50)
