Drone for filming Kiting?

Thinking about going in on a DJI Mavic Pro. Yes I know there is a 50% chance it drops in the ocean and i never see it again.

Anyone have any real life experiences using this drone for filming kiting? Obviously i would use it for other stuff too, but that doesnt concern me as much.

Re: no thrill in deathloop, megaloop is the shit

Really really great write up. Could you please post the length of lines you are using? I think that is absolutely imperative (and frequently underarticulated) when it comes to looping. More-so than kite shape even. The difference between 24m and 20m lines is colossal.

Ride Engine+Slider Bar+ Boosting

I am just about to make the jump to the Ride Engine Harness, but wanted to see if anyone who has experience with it can speak to boosting with the slider bar. I certainly do a fair amount of wave riding, but still use the twin tip about 70% of the time. Mainly jump as big as possible, few loops here...

Re: Renting Gear in New Zealand

Awesome, thanks for the replies everyone. I think I will just leave the gear at home, wing it once I arrive on the island if I get some time to ride. Will definitely check out the shop in Auckland (I am 10yrs experienced and fully expect to put down the credit card if I rent gear, so no worries on t...

Re: New drone, auto, waterproof and $499US

There are lots of things to like and not to like, but the waterproof component is a pretty novel one and should be very appealing for kiters. If you have any questions, i suggest you email and ask them. They got back to me within hours about wind speed "Lily was tested in winds up to 20 mph. However...
