agreed, very cool....so is that remote controlled or ????

CassMT 03-18-2014 05:12 PM

yep remoted...apparently it's going to be a GoPro accessory quadrocopter drone thingy

They've been out for a while but I think that's the newest version that is bluetooth/gps enabled so it will follow you. Can't wait to see these all over runs with copters crashing into each other. They're also still pricey.

i'm no lawyer but i'm sure these will be banned from casual users rocking them at resorts.

many dronecopter emergency room stories out there already

hadn't thought about them being allowed out on resorts, that would be bad. i would be getting out my wrist-rocket, now that would be fun

That is plain sick! Would totally love one of those. Might not work so well in a resort though, with the lifts being in the way and trees blocking views. Otherwise, very cool!

Redbull had some kind of "mini" heli thingy flying at Winter Park in the summer. Filming a mt bike race, flying parallel to the course. Thing was huge......definitely cause some bodily harm. Had a pilot and a cameraman with different remotes.

My friend chopped his nose off last year with an octorotor. That was not a pretty picture to have sent to me. I looked at getting one for Parks and Wrecks and there's so many issues to have one to shoot with these days it's kind of pointless.

i have to know, did he fly it into himself? and did they save his nose

not sure the congfig of the thing that filmed this vid, whether it was a normal little drone that they held and then let go of, or some new deal specially made by gopro, or what. seems like there need to be some training courses for people to pilot them!

sidenote, Hexacopter inc (6 rotors) is headquartered right here in WF, MT...guys are making a mint selling them to real estate agents, outdoor filmers, and i hear soon police and military. wish i had bought some stock a few years ago, damn
