Disc Golf Coverage REinvented - FLYBOY video
 
I was reading local DG forum and found this clip Kelly has put together. I took this last quote from Kelly Leggette final review of his course,

"Think little flying robots with gyro stabilized HD video cameras, bringing disc golf to the world in a way it's never been seen before. Think I'm kidding? We're already on it."

...Oh and this is what you have been missing if you never made it down to FLYBOY.

I think this video coverage is amazing and brings a whole new aspect of the spectator part to the sport, this might be what we need to get more recognition. enjoy

There's some real potential there, I would love to see more video like this.

That is exciting video.

They do this for big snowboard videos. I have been saying this is the way DG is ment to be seen since I started playing. Its about time someone did it. I went to video production school and they did a good job for a trial run. Now they need to go one step farther.

That is really cool perspective for DG! Love it!

I wonder how loud the "little flying robots with gyro stabilized HD video cameras" are. I can see them working great for things like biking and skiing and other extreme sports, but I would think they would need to be very loud and distracting for disc golfers. Maybe this could be done for DG with some sort of balloon/blimp mounted camera, but a helicopter must be pretty loud.

.....and Kelly raises the d--- bar, once again!

Wonder what the rental charges on those choppers are?

They are not that loud but they do make some noise. I have played with one before (as the camera Controller) they need two people to run them. One to fly and one to film. A cable cam could do a good job if it was out of the way enough so it was not in the fairway. Cable cams are much cheaper as well.

They cost a $h!t load to rent and you better be good at flying a remote control chopper because the rig is super spendy and if you break it you buy it.
