Ha, now I'm waiting for the thread where some Bozo sets it to film about 20 m from him and it flies into his kite and slices it to bits. That would be a bit of epic film :rollgrin:

There is also this one:

And don't forget that flying in wind will put more strain on motors, so you won't get as much battery life!

Damn! This has always been my issue, I fly with 4 or 5 other crew and no one is sitting on the shore pulling their twad, talking kite shit like I see a lot. We are all kiting.

Hence we haven't found a resident drone geek!

This may change everything if it's legit.

Sweet.

That's an impressive Kickstarter campaign. Goal of $50,000 and actual is over $750,000. Should hit a $1M before it's done.

One of the vids shows it following a guy under low hanging trees. They must be able to detect objects in the way?

Pretty cool.

Here is some clips from a few of my first filming attempts. I have a broken leg and have become the local drone geek!;)
