Sweet RTF Quadcopter w/ GoPro mount
 
GoPro quadcopter... What do you think?

I'm hoping to get my hands on one of these in the near future for some aerial wakeboarding and MX footage (I don't currently have $700 burning a hole in my pocket!). I know it's not professional grade, but neither is the price! :)

We have one...its pretty sweet. Downsides are: very short battery life, cheap plastic rotors, and I would say you need a go pro3 (not a 1 or a 2). You seem to get some jello effect for some reason unless you use a 3, not sure why. We crashed it a couple times but it does take a beating. Stock up on extra rotors!

Can you put the waterproof case on the camera? Obviously, that would be a must when shooting wake.

You could look into one of these, but may be harder to fly? Im not an RC guy
