Default Which quadcopter?

Hello,

Im into helicopters, but wanted a quadcopter to make some video footages.
I have no experience with quadcopters so help me out.
Whats a good quadcopter in the $500 mark?

I was looking at the Gaui 500x, is it a good option?

The 450 is the best choice unless you want to lift a bigger payload.

Yes, the 450 is quite straight forward and easy to set up, if you decide later on you need to upsize to the 550 you can just get a new frame and a couple of extra motors and ESC's to build a hexa if you like.
