Remote Controlled DG Basket

Looks like a pretty neat concept.

If I had $1,500.00 to spend, I would buy one.

Is this a continuation of A.R.T.H.U.R. or is this somebody else?

I guess Im gonna be "that guy" but this is just stupid. What is the point of this? It's moves by itself? Who cares...pick up your damn basket and move it. I really don't see the point in this and the people who are marketing this are wasting their time, imo.

It's their time to waste.
$1500? Who's got $1500 for a self-propelled basket?
Personally, I wish them the best, but don't see myself getting one at that price.

I've talk to the creator at a tourney for awhile about it. He said he was marketing them to schools for gym classes. Would u rather be to drive the basket 300ft-400ft and have to wake back to some place and tee off or just tee off from we're you ended the last hole.

Way to think about this from one direction! As someone who is working on an "Urban DG"-style video, I would love to not have to carry a basket around all day long. As above, this would be great for helping a gym teacher to introduce disc golf and leave them more time for throwing.

With some heavy-duty R/C components, you could probably build this yourself for a lot less.
