I'm interested in buying a Gaui 330X S quadrocopter (not anymore - X650 or X720). The problem is that I'm a novice in RC flying, and I would therefore like to ask a few questions.
What range should I expect with a radio controller preferably below 300 USD? (Like the SPECTRUM DX6i with a AR6110 receiver)
Is it possible to implement a GPS-module to enable position/altitude hold?
I have been searching for a camera to mount under the quadrocopter, so that I can see live video feed while flying. I would rather not use the camera holder that is intended to be used with it because I think it looks a bit odd.
The cameras I have been looking at are from ACME:
FCO HD 720p
But I don't know what else I need to buy to make them work, and what maximum range I may achieve. Nor what screen I should use.
I think that it's important to be able to remotely adjust the camera, at least up and down. FCO3 does have some sort of head tracking with their FPV goggles (which I btw consider too expensive). Maybe it's possible to manually control the camera from the base unit?
12 minutes of flight time seems a bit to short. Is it worth it to use a 4000mah battery like this http://www.truerc.com/[...], or should I use a smaller one?
