oh yeah, He comes in every so often and types "flyboy" in the search engine and leaves.

The camera has been used and you have probably seen it used and did not even know it.

Kelly sent me a very nice PM after I left his place so i'm sure he lurks. The guy is a first class human being fo shure! If I get back down (which i'm almost 100 % sure I will this year) I would love to see this copter! Everyone says that we have seen footage from it already, where would this footage be from?

When I was down in Charlotte last year I saw a crew of 3 or 4 at Winthrop with one of these flying helicopter machines. Was like a month and a half before worlds so not sure if it had cameras or what, I didn't get a chance to talk to them. They were on the bamboo hole and all I could hear from the next tee was them smacking the sh1t out of the bamboo fortress lol. The copter wasn't to loud either. Would be cool to utilize this more.

A guy with a camera is head height so you're going to get the profile shot of the disc, it's not as aesthetically pleasing and it's harder to see the farther the disc gets away.

With the copter you're above the disc and can get a lot more lateral movement than a guy with a camera can. You're going to get a better shot of the disc flying, not to mention you can get way more angles on a fairway with a copter than you can with a guy and a camera.

Crane cams? How is that logistically possible to set up on 18 holes with the budget of current film crews?

A blimp? how is that better than a copter? The copter can actually fly in semi wooded areas, a blimp can't see crap in the woods. A copter gets multiple angles a blimp gets one angle.

He's saying the copter can't get legit coverage of the disc well if you watch that first video I think that proves everything about what he's saying wrong. Trying to push the way ball golf is filmed on to disc golf is dumb, it's two completely different animals.
Dude, you need to stop trolling. Don't start arguments about things you don't understand.

First of all, Whiteybear is correct in his assessment that while this is a really useful tool, it's not going to become the standardization of disc golf videography (at least with current technology). Second, it's not in opposition to those excited about it to point out this fact - so this whole issue is a complete flame war created from a non-argument.

but the thread being dug up is awesome - I missed it the first time around, I'm going to look at ways to adapt this for my own projects

Sorry, Kelly is not ready to share that information.

Things I don't understand? What qualifies you as somebody who does and me as someone who doesn't? What you've made some videos, does that qualify you?

My qualification is my eyes, I can watch something and tell you if it sucks or not. I can see what the limitations are of each aspect. It's not rocket science, even idiots watch something and tell you if it sucks.

I've made my points and the only thing you can do is naysay without a supporting argument.

Have you seen the copter in action? Unless you have then it's you who doesn't have a clue. Quit being butt hurt because the copter takes better video than you.

They're already using the copter for major pro sports, I guess those people are dumb to.
