Default Advice on New Quad

I am selling my NEW never flown Align T-Rex 450 Sport on Ebay and my Blade SR. I want to purchase a Quad and get into video. Any advice on brand/model? I recently moved from Texas to Mesa, Arizona. Anyone reading this forum from the Valley of the Sun?

TIA

I plan to shoot stills and video.  Also want gps on board.  Have no idea about camera brand, weight, etc.  My helicopters did sell and ship today.  So I will be purchasing something soon.

Thanks for the reply.

well i fly Mikrokopters and they support GPS not many others do unless you get into DIY setups which will require some soldering and lite programming skills.

Does the Mikrokopters require soldering?

new kits yes, you would have to finish soldering small components on the board, like voltage regulators and connection pins. everything else like gyros etc are pre soldered.
then you will need to solder wires to the esc and also solder pins to esc's easy work
