I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Aye, get yourself over to quadcopters.co.uk and you want a dji f450 and naza lite with gps combo. Probably the best value for money. When you want to add fpv or aerial photography, ask me nicely and you can be sold a nice set of carbon frames to give loads of room for mounting stuff, and getting the props out of view....

The Naza v2 is basically the same, but uses firmware with a few more features. It also supports Cambus accessories, like an on screen display for fpv flying, or a bluetooth led module for remote programming. It also supports way point flying (ie. Autonomous flight.)

I'd recommend the naza lite to begin with, its a lot cheaper.

As for a. Camera etc, what do you want to do? Take aerial pictures, or fly fpv? If aerial pictures, you can't really go wrong with a gopro if you have the cash. The pink camera that Barnes has is pretty good for a budget option too.

If you want to get into fpv, look at fatshark goggles, the dominator and attitude goggles are great, and often are available as a set with a decent camera and transmitter included.
