The video is sped up while it's flying away from the pilot. Probably 3x or so.

Re: Octocopter Video Platform....

Apparently there's no solution to remotely controlling a GoPro while it's attached to the copter (range limits and interference with the copter) The phantom Vision+ with built cam is able to remotely control the camera functions (tilt rotate video on/off take pics setting etc) but you have to use their built in camera

Is it any good as a platform (ease of use) and is the camera any good?

Octocopter Video Platform....

If anyone is interested since they seemed to be sold out everywhere, the Dji phantom 2 vision+ that is, I bought one on pre-order and while I waited for it I found one locally that was in stock, so now I have 2. Selling for less than what I paid for it, $1299 plus $105 taxes = $1404 total. Asking $1350. No mark-up. Brand new, factory sealed, never opened, comes with receipt from authorized dji dealer and factory warranty.

Not sure what section of the forum that this fits in so just throwing it out there.

Knew you just had to be getting one of these. Getting two, I didn't see coming. GLWS.

Cool video of a volcano [EDIT: a geologic event where lava erupts] in Iceland erupting.
