    Some here in Aus as well.

    Stuff kites, Ill go for my heli any day.
    Yet to get a decent camera on it however.
    Pics are with a Canon A40 2mp and a Canon (plastic) SLR.
    Sony TRV530 for the video
    Funds all go to the heli and gear to date but I plan to strap on a
    300D when the price starts going down a bit and I can get one.

    I see kite man got an award from Canon UK
    "Canon Digital Creators award in 2003 for his aerial panoramas"

    Two hopes of a bonus from Canon in Aus.
    I already wrote Canon Aus a 2 pg letter to ask them for a deal on a
    camera in exchange for Canon stickers on my Helicam, Polecam, and
    coming soon, Submarinecam.
    I realise it was stupid writing Canon with any shred of hope, this is
    Aus, but Canon UK and Canon USA both sponsor Helicam operators so it
    was worth the stamp to ask.
    Cant help at all in any form they say :-(
    Well, my RPV's and road cases will look better without Canon stickers.

    The BBC article makes that clear in the first paragraph,
    and even clearer in the fourth paragraph.

    How could the article have made that any clearer than it did?
