The German effects studio OMStudios must really trust their custom RC Octocopter--the super high-def RED camera they're lifting costs $40,0000.

Looks like a Mikrokopter Okto, with custom frame.

Wish I could find those nice looking wood props, though!

Quite impressive to see over half a dozen batt packs at 0:55

This is awesome but I don't think I am putting my RED in the air anytime soon. I am still working on a octo to put my 7D up.

Can anyone figure out what they are using for their video downlink? Was that HD?

MIkrokopter: Super stable, precision altitude control, very good position Hold.

Paparazzi: Super stable, very precision adaptative altitude control, very good position hold.

Arducopter: stable? (wooble), altitude control simply not work, position hold not work fine

Well, I trust on MK and booz to carry my personal panasonic 3d and sony MC50.

I work in a TV station and i put lotz of professional CAM on my mikrokopter without problem.

For my Pro grade rotorcraft i use DVDquality digital videodownlink.

Search for ApQ digital video link.

Did anyone else notice that all of the shots from the air are slowed down to give the appearance of smoother flight?

Very interesting. It appears to be a Red Epic. Firmware still has a lot of bugs, but if it lives up to it's promises it should be an excellent camera. 120 fps at 5K. Cool !

@eduardo -- +1 :)  Totally agree.  MK keeps getting better, which is why I run three of them - That said I affirm my support for the Arducopter efforts.  I am sure it will continue to evolve.

eduardo: do you a link to the Paparazzi multicopter product? I don't know it.  And what was the last version of ArduCopter you've used?

eduardo: that's simply not correct, if you got a well tuned arducopter, it can keep up with any mikrokopter without problems ;)
