Wish List: Quadcopters


In this video, John McQuiston, of KelbyOne, introduces us to three RC quadcopters that are sure to be top hits this holiday season. The first is the AR.Drone2.0 from Parrot, a smartphone-operated mini quad that demonstrates remarkable agility, able to perform flips at the press of a button. The next is the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+, which features an integrated 1080p video/14MP still camera that is stabilized by a three-axis gimbal for an all-in-one aerial video and photo solution. Finally, for those who already own a GoPro, is the Phantom 2, which is basically the Phantom 2 Vision+ sans camera. With the Phantom 2 it’s possible to mount the GoPro using a fixed amount, but ideally you'll want the Zenmuse H3-3D Gimbal to ensure really steady footage. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at B&H.com.
