    Sure, any large (800mm or greater) quad with the right power system can lift a DSLR with gimbal. A good example is the Align M480L

    True, but he specified quads. I have been checking out that Tornado, makes me want to move to the hex platform!

    What I don't too much like about the Tornado is the "umbrella" configuration. Difficult to transport. Also 920mm is ginormous! I've been enjoying building and flying my hexes, F550 for APV and a Smart.H. for FPV. Fun to fly, stable and heavy lifters for their size.

    But still, none of my self-built MRs match the Q in video stability.

    Here's the Smart.H just after finishing the build.

    Nice hex! :)

    The arms of the Tornado fold down nicely. ;)
