I am a film producer and was just recently introduced to the idea of using a helicopter drone for film. The more I have researched the more fascinated I have become with the idea. That being said I am in desperate need of your help. I am so new to this that most everything in the forums just goes right over my head. I don't have the foggiest what most of it means.
I am looking to find a helicopter drone that is capable of carrying something as large as a dslr. I think it would need a gyro gimbal (I think that is what it is called) to help keep it level and smooth. Also, the ability to see the video from the helicopter so that you have an idea of what you are capturing. Thats about it. I don't need a million bells and whistles because I wouldn't know what to do with them.
Any suggestions? I don't even know where to begin. It appears you can build them yourself for much cheaper but then as I said I don't know anything about them and it seems complicated. Any recommendations for the cheapest helicopter out there that still has good enough quality and matches what I am looking for? I would love something in the thousand dollar range but I don't know if that is totally unrealistic?
Any help from all of you experienced pros would be greatly appreciated.
