The GS500 has the longer optical zoom, which will be helpful.

If the purpose is to get the best video, I’d suggest renting or borrowing a helicopter.

Planes make for especially unstable video, so you may want to make or buy a handheld stabilizer (Glidecam, Steadycam, Flowpod, etc.) if you’re serious about using the Cesna.

Good luck!
