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.
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.

Wonder what the rental charges on those choppers are?
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.
