What will a T-rex 450 xl lift and still be flyable up to 200 feet (no fancy flying)? As far as a camcorder and rig?

im pretty sure that a real camcorder would be very difficult to lift but i think it could lift it based on the amount of thrust i was feeling when i was setting up mine. they do make the mini color cameras for that purpose though. but i dont really know the answer to your question.

Depending on power output of your bird, would look at small lightweight 5megapixel cameras. For a handycam, you will be looking at 50 sized like the trex 600

Theres a special camera mount that someone sells on the net for still cameras thats an extension to the trex 450's landing skid.

So a T-rex 600 could lift 2 lbs? And be more stable than a 450 xl?

The problem with those Xcams is they use a directional antenna. Great for fixed setups where you can get extra range pointing the antenna at the RX, but not good for heli use where the antenna will be moving...

The (cheapish) 2.4GHz minicams (spycams) with the tiny wire antenna are ideal for a TRex. Even with the weight of a 9v battery the performance hit is close to zero.
