Thank you to those that helped with my netbook question.  I can rest easy knowing the my upcoming netbook purchase will run Paparazzi, no problem.  :)

So today's concern is about which type of aircraft to use.  I admit that I don't have an R/C vehicle experience; but it has been the Paparazzi project that has prompted me to dive in.  The main catalyst is to be able to take aerial photos of the streets here in Taipei, as well as learn more about customizing hardware components.

If any of you have visited Taiwan before you know that the population density is incredibly high.  Therefore I would like to know if any of you can recommend an aircraft that is easy to control (perhaps even hover), can support a large enough payload for simple photo and video, and allows easy implementation of Paparazzi. 

I searched the Wiki for "helicopters", but didn't see too much info.  A Google search for "paparazzi + helicopter + uav" gave me this thread of a newb looking to do a similar thing

However, if a heli is too technical for a new user like me to implement Paparazzi, any suitable beginner plane might do the trick.

Best regards,
