      Hmm... since I practice most of the time in a forrest ... how could the beast avoid trees and branches ?

        I think this should be considered as an "Improvement" or "CR" (change request) for the developers of this product
        Anything can be solved...

          I was tempted to get a cheapo one, but I started to think about the legality of it. There are more laws in the UK about privacy etc.. And then I also read this earlier today...

          If people take a pot-shot at it with a blunderbuss, it can be a bit expensive.

            It's funny people are worried about their privacy due to such "flying cameras".
            I bet Google, Facebook and others (NSA maybe?) know everything there is to know about anyone that is wired to the Internet or to a cellular network
            It's just another way of making money on behalf of paranoid people...

              Nice one, but in the long presentation, they say that it can be set to hover in a fixed position and follow you as you ride by.
              But you're right, a low tree and branches radar would make it even better!

                Drones have potential. They had a story about them on 60 minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTZ94RujpEg

                  Really cool, it's sort of like a high tech version of Terry's (MuniAddict's) cable cam. Except that Terry's is only a few dollars and works okay in trees.

                  For those interested in some more information on quadcopter drones I saw this ted talk a while ago and was amazed at the capabilities of this kind of thing.

                    Hi guys.

                    Here's a little video that hubby took with his FPV ( First Person View )drone.
                    The camera is a "muvi", a cheaper version of the "go pro".

                    There are some good video's on You Tube by the "Flite Test" guys.
                    It's a shame though that they are being put to bad use and this is all we ever get to hear about.
                    Hubby is making the most of his time with his camera copter because he expects that they will be banned in this country in the future.

                      Really well done on the video Alucard.

                      The riding, the shots, the flying, the music all blended to make a very enjoyable video.

                      Thanks, Jim

                        Ouch I tend to think that radaring foliage, bushes and small branches is extremely tricky (may be adaptative sonaring is easier)

                          Maybe it's easier to equip the drone with one of these saw systems:

                            It seems as though "follow mode" is the next big thing with drones - here are a couple more:

                              That tastes of AWESOME
                              Where do I send my cheque?!!

                              I've seen a similar concept developed by surfers to automatically track them shooting the curl but that was only from a ground mounted camera that could track the target left and right.
                              I look forward to wasting money on one of these bad boys when they hit the shops
