The DJI Phantom Quadcopter has caused a hell of a lot of buzz, and for good reason as it is ready to fly and film from right out of the box and only costs around $679. Actually there is some assembly required but, what does the on board footage look like from a GoPro 3 camera? We put together a few videos to give you a taste of what you can expect if you did combine a DJI Phantom Quadcopter and a GoPro 3, or GoPro 2 camera.

Test from ElefunTV:

Test of the DJI Phantom with GoPro HERO3 onboard. All video is original from camera without any softwarestabilizing or editing except clipping. Some clips are in 50% speed. ElefunTV

and some night GoPro 2 flight test footage which was stabilised using YouTube by helsel kr:

I took a video with GoPro2 during 9min. ( Lipo 11.1V 2200mAh 35C ) Approx max height 70ft, distance 230ft flying from the home position. Outside Temp. approx 35F degree in Korea.Phathom is good enough for taking a snap video or more professional video when you want to have just 3~10sec video.
It was sabilized by youtube tool.

Globe Flight test with GoPro 3 camera:

So there you have it, some nice test videos of the DJI Phantom Quadcopter with GoPro cameras on board. It must be said that we did find some other videos where the footage was less than desirable.
