***FAKE***Kickstart This Puppy Into Flight. The eye3 DSLR Hexacopter.***FAKE***
This is one really cool Kickstarter project. The eye3 is a hexacopter that will carry any camera under twelve pounds. It is easy to assemble, safe to fly and under a grand! Kellie Sigler has already surpassed her goal of 25K and is still taking pre-orders. The basic kit is just under a grand with no autopilot feature. The advanced kit does include an autopilot feature and will set you back around $1500. Aerial photography has really taken off with the emergence of smaller HD camera systems. I can only wonder how many of these things will be flying around in the next few years.
Here is a rip from the Kickstarter page.

“eye3: An Affordable Flying Robot
eye3 is a project to create a professional quality yet affordable flying robotic camera platform, or Drone. Almost anyone attempting to build a platform like the eye3 will be stunned by the complexity involved and the years of hands on experience needed to create a functional, safe device. The incredibly steep learning curve combined with the high cost of failure has kept this powerful tool out of the hands of thousands of creative people.
We Can Make Aerial Photography Easy for You
My husband and I have been building, programming and flying these complex machines for many years, giving us the knowledge and experience to produce a high performance flying robot in a low cost kit that practically anyone can assemble. Cinematographers, journalists, scientists, hobbyists:eye3 has the power, stability, automation and precision you need to produce professional results.”
