Hello fellow Oregonians, we need your help! Oregon threatens to make all RC flying devices that are "capable" of capturing images or video illegal with outrageous fines and jail time. Senate Bill 71 has been submitted to the Oregon State Senate which would make any unmanned flying device "capable" of capturing videos or photos from the air illegal. They classify these devices as "drones," which means any small remote control airplane, helicopter, or multirotor (or probably even a kite!) with a tiny camera on it will get you into some big trouble.
Ever since the new GoPro Hero 3 camera was released, we have been getting the same question over and over again. "How do you use the new Hero 3 with FPV?" Well we are going to show you!

Sometimes we get a little carried away with video here at Xpro Heli. We like video because we are video people, but aerial photography is a medium that is in high demand by many residential and commercial real-estate companies. Aerial photography also has the added benefit of being higher resolution and doesn't need great weather to capture long smooth takes when compared to aerial video.
We have had some great customers who have been using the XP2 Quadcopter and GoPro Hero cameras solely for aerial photography. Check out their work below.
The camera test everyone has been waiting for, the very well tested GoPro Hero 2 compared against the new lighter slimmer GoPro Hero 3 black edition. After waiting over a month to receive our GoPro Hero 3 we were so excited to strap it onto the XP2 Quadcopter.
