    Your own personal drone

    A guy at work got a Phantom2 drone and told me how much fun it was to fly it and how people are using them for all kinds of stuff including mt biking. Sure enough there is more than one video on youtube:


    At this point, the drones don't stay up very long and can't auto-track a person but I am sure that's coming. I picture a group ride in a few years where everyone brings their own drone and spends an hour getting their drone set up. No one talks about bikes any more. It's all about whose drone is better. I hope I am wrong

    Here is another video - from the Arches. Hard to believe it's home made:

    Anyone have a drone? We have some amazing scenery around here. St Helens comes to mind.

    My friends dad has one and is a gopro dealer and he makes a ton of video. I've always thought it would be cool to use one to get video of people riding the Palisades cliffs.

    Video overlay, obviously. Leaderboards are so played.

    If you didn't drone it, it didn't happen.
