RC Video Helicopter Help Wanted For a Music Video, Montreal, January - ADVICE PLS!

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hello everyone. Already posted this in the Aerial Photo thread, was told to try my luck in here.

I'm a young film maker from Montreal who has become really interested in RC helicopter videos over the last six months.

I am interested in shooting a music video for a friends band with this technique in January. This is non-commercial.

Can I get some advice from you guys?

Are there any problems with flying in winter if it's a nice day? But obviously below zero.

How long do batteries normally last for? Fuel?

Are any of you from Montreal or know anyone that may be able to help us out? Someone with a chopper and the ability to attach a GoPro or other camera...

Are there any questions I should be thinking about that I am not asking here? What should someone be thinking about if they wanted to shoot something like a music video in a few different locations over one day with RC helicopters?

Thanks in advance!

for what you guys are trying to do your best bet is prabably a quad copter.
no other than frozen fingers there is no issue with flying in the winter. dipending on the machine and batteries they ussally last about 10 min.
although it may seem easy it is not and i do not recommend just going out and buying something and trying to film this. you should do some online research and possibly find a local club where there would hopefully be some people to help you out.
you should also buy a sim and practice on that!
