Thanks for the quick response. I am definitely intrigued by the quadcopter. Too bad that I'm only finding out about this now- i'm sure you're right that the learning curve must be pretty steep. Guess I'll stick to regular video for this trip.. but it's giving me ideas for future videos/trips!

Thanks for the compliments. Believe me it was as much fun capturing the video as it is watching it. My quadcopter is pretty advanced and not for beginners. I would suggest you find a local hobby store and ask about quadcopters. Blade (Horizon Hobby) just announced a beginner-friendly one called the Blade 350 qx. It can hold a gopro - not included - and has GPS and can return to your start position if you think you've lost control. Unfortunately it's not yet released. The GoPro is $300-400. If you want to fly it First Person View (FPV) that's another dimension and will take another $400 or so as well as lots and lots of practice. If you haven't flown radio control aircraft I am sorry to say I don't think you will be up and running within 10 days - just putting together the stuff takes some time as well as learning to fly it. However I would definitely be on the lookout for the Blade 350 qx. I think it's $450 WITH a radio but no gopro camera. Pretty good deal for what it is. Hope that helps! Thanks again for the kind words.

Great videos of both Yellowstone and Grand Teton! We are going there in 10 days- watching your video makes me even more excited to go. The flying camera is awesome! Can I have more details about this? Makes for fantastic video. Your family seems to have had such a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing.
