Default Photo shooting from the air

I tired to use parrot drone and install my sport camera to it to have some photo shot from the air, but the quality is not that good. Anyone can recommend something similar here?

Expensive hobby, both cameras and drones! But can be great fun.
(currently illegal to use for commercial purposes in the US)

Oups!

Small cameras like the GoPro can be flowen with drones like the dji Phantom

But unexpected landing methods are not altogether unusual.

Just as a guess, you may need to use a camera which has image stabilization, as there is considerable vibration and camera shake involve, even in larger airplanes.
