I wondered how long it would be before these multicopters started getting used for climbing photography. I have a couple that I've been using for aerial photography and video, but never got round to taking any climbing shots. I have a friend who is putting a copter together for a guide in Cham who wants to use it for film making and photography.
The cost of a decent one that's capable of carrying something like a 5D Mk2 starts around about £4000 and can easily go up to over £10k.

In reply to Phil Payne:
A cheap flyer is 4k. A decent one, and there is only really one that gives enough flight time is closer to 30k.
If you're paying £30K for one then you're doing something very wrong or being totally ripped off. Are you talking about a Draganflyer or something by Microdrones? I really don't think they're worth the money!
