Default Good with my MCX2, looking to uprade to a Quadcopter

I'd like the ability to run a wireless video system so I need a decent payload compasitty. I am very professient at building RC kits so RTF isn't necessary

Range however is. I'd like at least 300+ yards on the video

I was planning on using a 200mw bullet camera with receiver or maybe even higher.

What beginner kits would you recommend. I've been eyeballing the Walkera UFO series but they seem cheap.

I'm very well versed in brushless outrunners and ESCs and lipos.

What would you guys recommend.

What glasses are out there for viewing purpuses.

Thanks for the help!

www.hobbyking.com you can get $15 or less brushlesses and escs for around the same... Also you can get lipos very cheap as well. As far as the quadcopter goes... I have no idea.

Thanks I frequent hobbyking frequently. My friend highly recommends the Nine Eagle Solo II kit but I'm looking to get into a quad copter for arial photography and wireless video.

I've been eyeballing the Gaui Quad Flyer.

Quad-copters are actually easier to fly then Coaxials.
The drone also makes things very easy and the FP video is super cool.......if you've got a 3g device.
