bigjdubb, I'd like to see someone with very little technical know-how build a quad/hex with camera for under $1300. RTF exists for the same reason why PC and consoles both can co-exists.
Regardless of DIY or RTF, The one I have with have built-in shots (ie cable with multi-points) that just cannot be replicated by one pilot (requires one camera operator and pilot with lots of experience).

do you actually fly multirotors or just making assumptions?
GoPro is not superior than DJI camera for the fact that it has fisheye. I fly with one and cant stand it.
If you fix it in post you lose resolution.
You can modify it but the aftermarket lenses aren't as sharp and they're pricey.
regardless of a $50 or $3000 system, you fly it expect it may fall out of sky one day (either glitch/mechanical failure/bird strike etc). Fly what you can afford to lose or get insurance.Edited by twitchyzero - 9/30/16 at 12:48pm
