Default Amazing Aerial Shots W/ GoPro on Brushless Gimbal

I knew it would be nice to have my GoPro on my quad hence the recent purchase of the Phantom but I wondered how much do I really need this. After only a few days with this setup I can see I will be capturing allot of amazing video imagine spring green up, Fall with the trees changing color etc. Here are the latest 2 I am really proud of take a look they are pretty epic and go so good with the music.

You might want to hurry up, a recent lawsuit freezes any new sales from US retailers. So I anticipate the market to dry up a little, driving the prices up some.

Few new ones really worth watching, at least the beach one. Man does this thing do good video I love that brushless gimbal, all these shots would be worthless without it.

wind gust above the treeline brought it down

having foam leg extenders also did not help the aerodynamics
it has since been replaced

so the best choice will be phantom with the gimbal combo right?
Any other thing that I have to buy or it's coming ready to fly?
What about extra battery, should I buy it on ebay, what brand?

Thanks

Phantom 2 with brushless gimbal is best. It comes ready to fly just have to install gimbal do some calibrating with software and then a compass calibration at the field. I would only use the dji ones they are more than a battery it is very sophisticated you will see charger and module built in.
